Mixed up Mama's Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

My husband LOVES chicken wings but the store bought wings are a bit to pricey for our budget.  We are working on getting debt free (thanks Dave Ramsey!) so we are often limited to what we can buy each month so chicken wings are never on the menu unless they are these 'from scratch' wings.   These  are so easy and freeze wonderfully so they can be made ahead and just pulled out a few hours before cooking so they can thaw and marinate all at the same time.  I will share the recipe as though you are planning on making batches of these and freezing them for the month. 

 Not only are these wings delicious, gooey, sticky, and one of my husbands favorites, the kids really enjoy them as well.  There are never leftovers.  These have a little spice to them to keep the men folk happy but not enough to deter the small ones.  So try these out for dinner tonight and let me know how you liked them.  Just try not to eat them all yourself  - notice I'm not posting nutritional info nor have I  posted any work outs on here yet, so I'll be no help in that area ;)  I suppose the fact that these are baked and not deep fried helps, right???  

Pictured are my Garlic Cheddar Mashed Potatoes but would go equally as well with baked beans, french fries, or baked potato.  Drool...

Mixed up Mama's Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

18 chicken wings 
2 teaspoon garlic salt
 1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne 
1 cup barbecue sauce, I use Sweet Baby Rays
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons hot sauce
4 tablespoons butter melted

Combine all ingredients except wings and mix well.  Place wings in gallon size freezer bag and pour marinade on top.  Press out air, zip to close and throw into the freezer until ready to use.  A few hours prior to cooking take bag out of freezer to thaw/ marinate. Pour entire contents onto a cookie sheet (single layer) and cook uncovered for 40 min at 375.  Remove from oven and try to control yourself!  Just remember, a moment on the lips, a life time on the hips... ah, that's really a stupid saying anyway.

This recipe is my own so if you would like to share it on your blog or site, please just post a link back here to this blog.  Thanks and happy cooking!

Here's my little guy Isaiah enjoying his wings!  This boy can eat and gets his food everywhere!
