Finger-licking-good! These words were inspired by these delicious Baked Honey Barbeque Boneless Wings! Baked and tender white chicken, dipped in buttermilk and egg, coated with a perfectly seasoned crispy chicken breading and baked up hot, and then tossed in the most perfect honey barbeque sauce ever. If you like your chicken tangy and your barbeque sauce smokey. sweet and sticky, these are calling your name. So saucy!
I have yet to meet anyone that doesn't just DEVOUR these - they are the first thing to disappear at appetizer and game day parties. A long-time family favorite for both dinner and snacking, but they are also fabulous sliced up for a barbeque chicken salad with some fresh salad greens, cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon, or rolled up in a sandwich wrap with tomatoes, cheese and shredded lettuce. So delicious!
And just in case there is any confusion, there really is no such thing as "boneless wings" - it always cracks me up when someone tells me they don't care for wings, dark meat or chicken skin! These moist and tender chicken bites are made from white chicken breast meat - skinless and boneless, either cut into cubes or strips - however you like it. And baking it up instead of frying it up? Genius!
We've all had pre-packaged chicken tenders and wings, but once you've made these at home you'll see just how simple and easy they are to make at home. My family LOVES these! And I love how quickly they bake up in the oven, and that I can dial up the barbeque sauce from a sweet honey all the way up to a smokin' hot barbeque flavor! This sauce is so dang good that I sometimes drizzle a little extra on top, or serve it with warm sauce for dipping.
This recipe is so versatile, that you can use it for whole chicken breasts as well. Everything is just the same, just bake it for a little bit longer! Hope you love these as much as we do!
