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!

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.

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!

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!

Kroger Medium Wing Sauce

I’ve said it before. If you’re standing in the wing sauce section of the grocery store, trying to decide on the next sauce you’re going to grab for a great batch of wings, do not hesitate to try the store brand. I was at Kroger, and I couldn’t help myself. I grabbed one each of every one of their sauces, including the Kroger Medium Wing Sauce. The sauce turned out to be perfect! A decent hint of heat (a bit more than Kroger’s Mild Wing Sauce) and the perfect consistency. This is a mighty fine wing sauce, and boy, the price was right!
Kroger Medium Wing SauceIf you by chance end up with any leftover medium wing sauce, toss it in the fridge. Make sure you warm it a bit (at least to room temperature) before using it on your next batch of wings. Nothing makes hot wings sad faster than tossing them in cold wing sauce!

Kroger also makes a fantastic Parmesan garlic wing sauce. Try it too!

Jalapeno Peach Wings

I think it’s safe to say that I am addicted to chicken wings. They’re one of the most versatile dishes you can make. There are literally thousands of different sauces and seasonings for them. When I walk thru the grocery store I always look to see what is in season. Chances are, whatever it is, it can be made into a wing sauce. These jalapeno peach wings are a great example. That wonderful peach flavor with just a little spicy kick. Add a little sweetness and a nice vinegary snap and you end up with fantastic tasting wings.

Jalapeno Peach Wings

I wouldn’t hesitate to make an extra big batch of the sauce and use it to slather onto grilled or roasted chicken. Or brush it onto a rack of ribs just before pulling them off your smoker or grill. And it’s also fantastic on top of a chicken sandwich. The sauce is definitely not just for jalapeno peach wings but it sure is mighty good on them!

Also try my ancho peach wings.

Heritage Fare Garlic Wings

Sometimes I make my own wing sauces, and sometimes I buy wing sauces from the local grocery store (or online). I love the variety. I recently picked up a bottle of Heritage Fare garlic wings sauce. Think Buffalo wing sauce, but with a really great garlic hit. Seriously, Heritage Fare garlic wings sauce is drink-it-out-of-the-bottle good.
Heritage Fare Garlic WingsOn the off chance that you have leftover wing sauce (be it Heritage Fare or any other brand), in most cases you’ll have to refrigerate it until you make your next batch of wings. When you do, make sure you warm it a bit before tossing it with your hot wings. You definitely don’t want to put a cold sauce over hot wings.

Heritage Fare also makes a darned good Buffalo wing sauce.
