Guinness BBQ Baked Chicken Wings: Guinness beer is the base of this delicious bbq sauce and adds a ton of flavor to these baked chicken wings. Tasty for weeknight dinner or weekend snacking!
Whether you’re looking for a new chicken wing recipe to incorporate into your weekly dinner routine or just want a new appetizer to dig into while watching your favorite sports team this month, these Guinness BBQ Baked Chicken Wings will be a definite favorite.
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner so it’s really easy to find Irish beer, like Extra Stout Guinness Beer. I don’t like beer, but I do like the flavor when it’s added to some recipes like this one for short ribs or corned beef. I used to be a heavy smoker back in my early 20’s and the more beer I drank, the more cigarettes I wanted to smoke.
I finally decided to quit for good and got hypnotized and I haven’t had a cigarette in 22 years. However, when I was hypnotized, I must have associated beer with the cigarettes because I can’t STAND the taste of beer at all. Odd how that happens right?
Anyway, like I said earlier, I like cooking with beer so when I wanted to make a new recipe that could be enjoyed either for St. Patrick’s Day or March Madness, wings seemed like the perfect combination. Though my family loves chicken wings, I wanted to make them a bit healthier (even if just a little bit!).
First, I par baked the chicken wings on an older sheet pan in the oven for about 30 minutes in a 425°F oven. While the chicken was cooking, I made the Guinness BBQ Sauce that I was going to baste the wings with by combining Extra Stout Guinness Beer, ketchup, garlic powder, Irish mustard and brown sugar.
I cooked these ingredients in a small saucepan over medium high heat on top of the stove for about 10-15 minutes; mixing until it became thick. Once thickened, I removed the sauce from the heat and allowed it to cool until the wings were ready for basting.
You can make this bbq sauce up to two days ahead of time and keep it covered tightly in the refrigerator to save time as well. Baste the chicken with the Guinness BBQ Sauce and bake the chicken for another 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
For this recipe, I used 3 lbs. of chicken wings; which is about 18 wing segments. My family got home just as these were coming out of the oven and they devoured them; they were SO good! They are a little sticky so don’t forget to keep extra napkins on hand. 🙂 ~Enjoy!
