But one version that never fails to impress is the Honey BBQ Boneless Wings. This recipe is a long-time favorite in our household, and the best part is, we usually have all the ingredients on hand.

How to Create Succulent Boneless Wings
Preparing Boneless Chicken Wings is a breeze, but don’t forget to start early, as the chicken needs to refrigerate for 30 minutes to lock in the flavors.
Prepare the Breading Station: Cut the chicken into small chunks. Whisk together milk and egg in a bowl, while pouring flour, salt, pepper, and paprika into a bag. Shake well to mix.
Coat the Chicken: Dip the chicken chunks into the milk and egg mixture and then toss them into the flour bag. Repeat the process, ensuring the wings are double covered.
Chill for Extra Crispiness: Place the coated wings on a baking sheet covered with wax paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Fry to Perfection: Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan, about an inch deep, for 5 minutes. Fry the chicken in small batches, turning halfway through, until the breading turns golden brown. Let the wings cool on paper towels.
Toss with Sauce: Heat the honey BBQ sauce on medium heat and toss the chicken until thoroughly coated. Serve these delectable wings with a side of cold Ranch Dressing and enjoy!
For alternative cooking methods, you can also use an air fryer or bake the wings in the oven. The air fryer method offers a healthier twist, while baking ensures a crispy texture without the need for frying.
Tips for BBQ Wings Perfection
Creating the perfect boneless wings is an art. Here are some tips to ensure you achieve wings that are crisp, flavorful, and simply irresistible:
Choice of Chicken: Traditional bone-in wings consist of wingettes and drumettes. However, boneless wings are made from boneless skinless chicken breast cut into cubes. They are like an elevated chicken nugget, fully coated and deliciously saucy.
Choosing the Right Oil: Opt for oils with a high smoking point such as vegetable oil, peanut oil, canola oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, or corn oil. These oils retain their integrity at higher frying temperatures.
Chill for Extra Crispy Goodness: Though not mandatory, chilling the wings before frying helps enhance their crispiness. Don’t skip this step if you’re aiming for the ultimate crunch.
Sauce Alternatives: The beauty of these boneless wings lies in their versatility. Experiment with different sauces like BBQ sauce, hot sauce, buffalo sauce, or teriyaki sauce to customize your wings according to your preferences.
Perfect Pairings: Serve these Honey BBQ Wings with cold Ranch Dressing or blue cheese dressing for a fantastic flavor combination. Include carrot and celery sticks for a refreshing crunch that balances out the richness of the wings.
Who can resist the sight of these mouthwatering Honey Barbecue Wings? They are a feast for the eyes and taste buds alike.
Storing and Reheating
If by some miracle, there are leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To enjoy them later, warm them up in the microwave or oven. These wings are also delicious when eaten cold.
For those who like to plan ahead, you can prepare the chicken the day before. After coating the chicken pieces, store them covered in the fridge until you’re ready to fry them. Alternatively, arrange the coated wings in a single layer and freeze them. Once frozen solid, transfer them to a freezer-friendly Ziploc bag, where they can last for 2-3 months. Before frying, allow them to thaw for about 30 minutes.
