Drunken BBQ Chicken Wings

  • 3 lbs. chicken wings, split; tips removed
  • 1 bottle Iceberg beer
  • 2 tablespoons Clubhouse chipotle mango seasoning
BBQ sauce:
  • 1 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Iceberg beer
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain Dijon mustard
  1. Start with a large bowl, marinate the chicken wings witht he Iceberg beer and chipotle mango seasoning. Cover with plastic wrap and lay in the fridge for at least 2 hours for flavors to infuse but overnight is best if you plan ahead of time.
  2. Preheat oven at 375F
  3. Meanwhile in a medium sauce pan or large frying pan, combine all the BBQ sauce ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  4. Lay chicken wings out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  5. Remove the wings from the oven and place them in the BBQ sauce and make sure they are evenly coated. Then place them back on the same baking tray with a new sheet of parchment since the first sheet probably has a lot of grease and moisture left on it from cooking the wings before.
  6. Continue to bake the wings for another 10-15 minutes until the sauce starts to bubble and brown.
  7. Turn over chicken midway through the cooking process and baste with additional sauce if needed.
  8. Once the internal temperature of the wings reach 180F and desire brownness is achieved they are ready.
Don't forget to pass these tasty wings around with more ice cold beer!

Tip: Using a wire rack inside a parchment lined baking sheet makes the chicken crispier.
       You could also do these wings on the BBQ and baste them when they are almost cooked through.
