No one will guess that these wings are made in the oven. The baking powder in the breading helps crisp up the skin, and then they're drenched in my traditional Carolina BBQ sauce, a mustard-based sauce. The sauce is great on pork too, and you can make it ahead and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


Carolina BBQ Sauce:

For the Oven-Roasted Chicken Wings:

Miss Brown's House Seasoning:


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top of each. Coat the racks with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Make the Carolina BBQ sauce: Whisk together the mustard, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens and the sugars dissolve, about 10 minutes. Set aside half of the sauce for the final basting and for serving.
  3. Make the oven-roasted chicken wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. Stir together the flour, House Seasoning and baking powder in a bowl. Dredge the chicken wings in the flour mixture and arrange on the wire racks in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn, then baste with the Carolina BBQ sauce and bake until the chicken wings are browned and crispy and a thermometer registers 165 degrees F, 15 to 20 minutes longer.
  4. Brush the roasted chicken wings with the reserved sauce before serving.
