Crispy Convection Oven Wings

Most of the time I make wings either on a charcoal grill using the Vortex insert, on my Char-Broil Big Easy, or I deep fry them. But sometimes none of those options are available. That’s when I ‘fire up’ my convection oven. And you know, the wings are actually pretty darned good! Nothing will ever match deep frying wings in oil, but this is close enough when a deep fryer isn’t available. These crispy convection oven wings satisfy my wing craving just fine, thank you!

Crispy Convection Oven Wings

When your crispy convection oven wings are done, don’t make them sad by adding cold wing sauce right out of the fridge! That cold sauce will kill some of that crispiness that you had, and it’ll make your wings mighty darned cold! So if you’re using leftover, refrigerated sauce, warm it up while the wings are cooking. Then sauce those little beauties right out of the oven!

Also try my air fryer wings!

Meijer Bourbon Honey Mustard Wing Sauce

Is it possible for a bottled store-brand wing sauce to be too good? No, but Meijer Bourbon Honey Mustard wing sauce is about as good as you can get. All of the flavors are balanced and at just the right levels for me. Not too much bourbon flavor. Just the right honey sweetness. And the right mustardy vinegar kick. It’s different and delicious.
Meijer Bourbon Honey Mustard Wing Sauce
I contacted Meijer’s corporate office about the fact that I couldn’t find their Honey Bourbon wing sauce online. As of the time of this post they haven’t added it yet. So just head to your local Meijer and grab a bottle from the condiment section. While you’re there grab a few bottles of the other great Meijer wing sauces.

Also check out Meijer’s Sweet Chili, medium Buffalo and Mango Habanero wing sauces. They’re darned good too!

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.

Garlic-Q Wings

Alliger’s House of Wings has some of most awesome wing sauces I’ve ever had. I just cannot get enough of them. The other really cool thing about Alliger’s is that their website has simple recipes for combining their sauces to make new flavors. Like these Garlic-Q wings. It’s a wonderful combination of, you guessed it, garlic wing sauce and BBQ wing sauce! The garlic sauce by itself is pretty garlicky. Add in some BBQ wing sauce and you get this awesome new taste with just the perfect amount of spice.
Garlic-Q Wings
Garlic-Q wings are a great way to bring a little something different to the party. We’ve all had garlicky wings. We’ve all had BBQ wings. But Garlic-Q wings? Now, that’s new. And it’s so crazy easy to make!
