Boneless Sweet BBQ Wings: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist

Boneless Sweet BBQ Wings: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist

Introduction

I love Wendy's Honey BBQ Wings, but at 580 calories I can't even get fries or a frosty to go with them. I came up with this to satisfy my craving, and still be able to enjoy a side.

    It would be much more helpful if people would not rate or write a review until they have actually made the recipe. Reviews from people who have no idea how the food actually tastes make the rating system worthless. I already know how it "sounds" or "looks." Thanks. - 1/5/10

    Tastes exactly the same as dousing chicken in a jar of pre-made honey barbecue sauce. No more, no less. I was thinking maybe the sauce would at least get sticky and glazey to approximate the fast-food version. It's fine, but with all due respect, I can't understand how this won. - 12/5/09

    Kicked it up a notch with cajun seasonings. It was great! Something the whole family enjoyed--and that's a huge plus. Served with a salad and baked sweet potato fries. - 1/5/10

    I think what Wendy's does is just toss nuggets in sauce. I think a better re-make would be to bread the chicken with egg whites and bread crumbs and oven fry so it crisps up. Reduce the sauce in a pot so it thickens and gets sticky, toss some with the nuggets and pass the rest at the table. - 1/5/11

    Not Exactly a Substitute... I could definitely eat it with brown rice and maybe some pineapple. It's definitely not a substitute. Not very sweet, not crispy at all, and not fantastic at all but could be a part of a sensible meal. - 7/9/10

    Doesn't remind me of wings. Just barbequed chicken. The chicken came out tender; I seasoned it with Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb prior to marinating it. - 2/7/10

    If you cute your pieces small enough they definitely don't need to cook for so long. Mine turned out burnt and well just not good. I agree with the other person who said they just tasted like dousing chicken in BBQ sauce from a jar. Not a fan. - 1/1/10

  • Made this recipe and I must say that using a store bought BBQ sauce is not the best way to go. You can make your own BBQ sauce with a lot less calories and it will taste better. For this being a finalist recipe in the contest, it fails by comparison. - 9/26/11

  • Looks good, but I can't figure how you came up with the calories. Did you measure the drained off marinade and take a percentage of that and add to the recipe calculator? Any way I try, I get way more calories and more carbs, and I tried light and reduced carb BBQ sauce nutritional info. Thanks. - 9/25/11
