Boneless Honey BBQ Wings

My sons favorite thing to eat. He dips his in ranch dressing which surprisingly isn't' that bad. Who knew. Instead of buying all that processed chicken nonsense they sell in the frozen section of the food store, I wanted to make my own for him. 
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 quart of buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 whole onion 
2 cloves garlic
2 cups flour, more if needed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Oil for frying
1 recipe honey BBQ sauce, to follow

Preparation Instructions
In a large bowl add buttermilk, salt, pepper, and paprika. Mix well then add chicken pieces, onion and garlic mix again coating chicken well. Cover and refrigerate 6 hours to overnight. 
When ready to cook remove chicken from refrigerator
Heat oil to 375 degrees.
In a baking dish add flour salt and pepper, dredge each piece of chicken in flour then add to fryer. Add no more than 8 to 10 pieces and fry for 10 to 13 minutes. Drain them immediately add pieces to BBQ sauce to coat. Continue process. Serve warm. 

Honey BBQ Sauce
2 cups water
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar

1/2 cup honey

1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 45-60 minutes, or until thickened.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Pour into a sealable container, cover, and keep refrigerated.

  3. I have made this recipe four or five times now and my barbecue sauce never gets thick, how do you get yours to thicken up like in the photo?

    1. Hi there. I like a thick sauce. I find the longer I let it cook the thicker it gets. It will reduce down and thicken up. Hop this helps. :)

  4. These look so GOOD! One of my favorite things to get when we order pizza out. :) Will have to try these for sure!!

  5. This looks SO delicious. And the recipe isn't as hard as I thought it would be.
