BBQ Wings


All you need is:
18 Bone in Chicken Wings
1.5 Cups Barbecue Sauce (Annie?s is a good all natural choice)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, then place a wire rack on top of it.

In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken wings and half of the bbq sauce. Gently toss to coat.

Transfer chicken wings to rack, and line them up in a single layer.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from oven, brush with the remaining half of the bbq sauce and put back in the oven on the top shelf for another 5 minutes.
