These Gluten-free Barbecue Chicken Wings are great either off the grill or baked in the oven.

If you choose to barbecue, prebaking the chicken in the oven first will ensure that the chicken is cooked through.

The secret to these finger-licking gluten-free barbecue chicken wings is that they are coated in sauce before they are cooked and tossed in sauce after cooking.

Gluten-Free Barbecue Chicken Wings Recipe Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

    2. Wash the chicken wings and dry them well. Remove the wing tips, and split the wings into flats and drumettes if desired.

    3. Toss the raw wings with 1/2 cup of the sauce and place them in a 9- by 13-inch lasagna dish in the oven.

    4. If you're finishing the wings on the barbecue, bake for 30 minutes, then place on a preheated grill at medium heat until fully cooked and colored to your liking, about 15 minutes. For the oven method, bake for 45 minutes, then turn the oven to broil. Continue to cook until the wings are fully cooked and browned to your liking, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

    5. Remove the wings from the oven or barbecue, place in a large bowl and add the remaining 1/2 cup sauce. Toss until evenly coated. These wings are great hot or cold.
