Entertaining with Honey BBQ Wings

If you have friends coming over to watch a game or the latest episode of your favorite reality show, bring out some Honey BBQ Wings and Ranch dip.  Appetizers or “party food” are also a must when you’re binge watching a newly released season on Netflix.   

While my wings were cooking I whipped up a homemade Honey BBQ sauce.  You’ll only use about half of the sauce for the wings so pour the rest in a mason jar and you’ll be ready for the next burger night, chicken strips or ribs!  The sticky, smoky sauce can be as mild or spicy as you like.  Simply adjust the amount of chili powder.  If it were up to me I’d crank up the heat but the other members of my family aren’t quite that adventurous.  The amount of chili powder listed in the recipe below will give you a mild result with a slight tingle on the tongue.  To dip, I serve a generous amount of Litehouse Homestyle Ranch.   Of course, I also add a few different veggies on the side so we can claim to be eating healthy as well.

Are you a Blue Cheese or Ranch fan when it comes to dipping wings?  Our usual suspect is Litehouse Homestyle Ranch but who’s to say you can’t have both?  Litehouse Chunky Blue Cheese is equally delicious!  In my opinion, the more dips the better in all aspects of my food ventures.

Whether you let an Air fryer do all the work or bake them in the oven, these Honey BBQ Wings will have your guests coming back for more!  Be sure to check out all the other wing recipes on the Living Litehouse Blog
