Tart cranberry and zesty barbecue sauces quickly coat chicken wings for a finger-licking-good snack.
Updated Jan 21, 2014

Ingredients

  • 2 lb chicken wings
  • 1 can (16 oz) jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup mesquite smoke marinade or hickory smoke barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion

Steps

  • 1
    Cut each chicken wing at joints to make 3 pieces; discard tip. Cut off and discard excess skin.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Add chicken; stir to coat well. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil or cooking parchment paper; lightly spray foil or paper with cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Place chicken in pan.
  • 4
    Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until well browned and no longer pink in center. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat marinade to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook 3 to 4 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Brush chicken with sauce halfway through baking.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Using regular barbecue sauce for these wings is also okay. They’ll just be a little sweeter and not as smoky flavored.
  • tip 2
    Purchase already cut chicken wings in the meat or frozen foods section. They're sometimes called chicken drummies or wingettes and drummettes. You can use just drummettes if you prefer.
