Easy BBQ Hennessy Wings Recipe

BBQ Hennessy wings are a delicious and unique twist on the classic BBQ chicken wing. The Hennessy, a popular brand of cognac, adds a subtle sweetness and depth of flavor to the wings that pair perfectly with the smoky and savory BBQ sauce. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make BBQ Hennessy wings at home.

Ingredients For BBQ Hennessy wings

  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup Hennessy
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How To Make BBQ Hennessy wings

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the BBQ sauce, Hennessy, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir until well combined and the brown sugar has dissolved.
  3. Season the chicken wings with salt and pepper. Grill the wings for about 8-10 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  4. While the wings are grilling, bring the BBQ Hennessy sauce to a boil and reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer until the wings are finished grilling.
  5. Once the wings are cooked, brush them generously with the BBQ Hennessy sauce. Grill the wings for an additional 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the sauce has caramelized and the wings are nicely coated.
  6. Remove the wings from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  7. Serve the BBQ Hennessy wings with your choices of dipping sauce and sides, such as ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, or your favorite BBQ sauce. They also go well with grilled vegetables, potato salad, or coleslaw.

Tips To Make BBQ Hennessy wings Better

  • If you don’t have a grill, you can also bake the wings in the oven at 425°F for about 40-45 minutes, or until they are cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • You can adjust the amount of Hennessy in the BBQ sauce to your liking. If you prefer a stronger Hennessy flavor, you can add more. If you prefer a milder flavor, you can reduce the amount or omit it altogether.
  • If you want to add some heat to your BBQ Hennessy wings, you can stir in some hot sauce or chili flakes into the BBQ sauce before brushing the wings.
  • For extra crispy wings, you can toss the wings in a mixture of flour and your favorite spices before grilling. This will create a crispy crust on the wings as they cook.

Chill!
