1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 small (1/2 cup) onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 425°F. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with aluminum foil; spray with no-stick cooking spray.

  2. STEP 2

    Place chicken wings into prepared pan. Bake 45 minutes. Drain fat.

  3. STEP 3

    Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat until sizzling; add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes or until softened.

  4. STEP 4

    Stir in all remaining ingredients; continue cooking 5-6 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened.

  5. STEP 5

    Pour into mini-food processor bowl fitted with metal blade or blender container; process until smooth.

  6. STEP 6

    Pour sauce over wings; toss to coat. Bake 5-10 minutes or until wings are crispy and no longer pink inside.

  7. STEP 7

    Serve with barbecue sauce, if desired.

Tip #1

Homemade wing sauce is easy and delicious (as seen above!) Baking the sauce on the wings, rather than just tossing at the end means the sauce sticks to the wings for full flavor.
