Chicken Wings

Easy Homemade BBQ chicken wings Recipe

Is it picnic season yet? I love picnics and taking some nice fancy food and drinks along but it doesn’t always have to be sandwiches and juice. Chicken Wings or Chicken sliders along with fruits and nice mocktails not only make for a delicious picnic but always an easy one. Yes, you read it, right? These homemade BBQ chicken wings are super simple to make and turn out crispy and delicious. Make these chicken wings for an at-home picnic, an appetizer before a delicious meal or just serve as an evening snack. Whatever the occasion, you will be making these again and again!

My recipe calls for shallow frying instead of deep frying. The frying makes for a crispy layer but we don’t always have to deep fry to get that crispy coating in it. This delicious chicken wings recipe calls for an easy batter, shallow frying and then coating them well in homemade bbq sauce. If you fancy chicken sliders or mini chicken burgers instead you can check out my recipe for those too: Chicken Sliders 🍔

The Secret Sauce

The BBQ sauce is where the magic happens. I prefer a homemade sauce made with ketchup, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and a touch of hot sauce for some heat. You can also use your favorite store-bought sauce for convenience. Brush the sauce onto the wings during the last few minutes of grilling, allowing it to caramelize and create a sticky, flavorful coating.

BBQ Chicken Wings

  • 300 gm chicken wings skin on
  • 4 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • tbsp Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • ½ tbsp cumin powder
  • ½ tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 100 ml chicken broth sub for water

BBQ Sauce

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp black pepper



  • In a bowl add all dry ingredients and spices, give them a mix. Add in chicken broth or water, mix well. Adjust the batter consistency needed. It should be slightly thick to coat the chicken well.
  • Add in the chicken wings and mix well to coat all pieces. You can marinate the chicken for 15-30 mins or just fry it directly
  • Place a deep dish pan on medium-high heat; add ½ cup of oil and let it heat. Adjust according to the pan you are using. Carefully, take each piece of chicken wings making sure it’s coated well in batter and gently place in hot oil
  • Fry them for 7-9mins on each side at medium-high heat. It usually takes me 2 rounds to finish frying the whole batch. Take them out on a kitchen towel to soak the extra oil

For the Sauce:

  • In a separate pan on medium-high heat; add oil and garlic paste and let it cook for a minute. Add in the rest of ingredients, mix well. Let cook for a minute again before turning the gas off
  • Once done; add chicken wings to the sauce and mix well. Cover the pan and gently shake it if needed to coat the wings but this step might break the outer layer so be careful. Or you can just carefully stir the wings in the sauce instead


  • Serve them as an appetizer with a mix of equal part Mayonnaise and Peri-Peri sauce. Enjoy!
