Hennessy BBQ Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Hennessy
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar I'm using a keto brown sugar replacement, but any brown sugar will work
  • 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce Any hickory or Kansas City-style bbq sauce will work, including my keto bbq sauce

Chicken Wings

  • 1.5 lbs Chicken Wings sectioned into flats and drums
  • 1/4 tsp Natural Ancient Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1.5 tbsp Baking Powder


For the wings

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove the chicken wing parts from the refrigerator and pat dry (removing as much moisture as possible helps to have a crispy wing skin)
  • Mix the sea salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and baking powder in a small dish or ramekin.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mixture on the wings and toss the wings to coat.
  • Place wings on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet or a baking sheet with a cooling rack.
  • Cook the wings in the oven for 25 minutes per side.

For the sauce

  • Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan. Whisk to incorporate.
  • Heat on medium low for about 10 minutes or until the sauce looks more like a light syrup.

Finish the dish

  • Add the wings to a bowl.
  • Pour some of the sauce on top - about ½ cup of sauce should be enough.
  • Toss to coat.
  • Drizzle or add more sauce as needed.
