Brown Sugar Barbeque Baked Chicken Wings

Sweet, smokey and just a little spicy, the sauce for these wings comes together in 5 minutes and is crazy good! Created by Adam and Joanne Gallagher.


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha Chili Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 3 pounds chicken wings wing and drumstick separated (see note)


  • Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. (If you have one that fits, lay a cooling rack inside the baking sheet, this helps get the chicken extra crispy - see note below).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, sriracha, cumin and soy sauce. Taste and adjust the sauce to your liking then set aside 1/2 cup of sauce for tossing raw chicken and save the rest for dipping once the chicken has cooked.
  • Toss chicken with reserved 1/2 cup of sauce then add to the prepared baking sheet (you may need two). Then, bake chicken, turning chicken once during cooking, until opaque throughout, about 30 minutes.
  • Serve chicken with the sauce you set aside earlier, either on the side or tossed with the chicken.
