Sweet and Zesty Barbecue Wings

For the wings:

  • 1 lb chicken wings
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the BBQ sauce:

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/2 yellow or white onion, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 5 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp worcerstershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 450°F.  Massage wings with butter and season with garlic, salt, and pepper.  Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and crisp, tossing halfway through.  Once the wings are cooked to your liking, toss with BBQ sauce.

In a large saucepan on medium heat, melt butter.  Add onion and garlic and cook until soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes.  Once onion is clear and garlic is soft, add remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate.  Cook for an additional 15 minutes or up to 1 hour.
