Ghost Pepper Barbecue Chicken Wings Recipe


  • 2 lbs chicken wings, separated into drums and flats
  • Seasoning blend (you may or may not use all of it) – 5 tbsp of each: smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Indian red pepper, hot paprika, lemon granules, and cumin.1 cup Ghost Chile barbecue sauce (purchased from Williams-Sonoma)
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • Splash rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped, optional
  • Toasted sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Clean and completely dry your chicken wings using paper towels. It is important that the wings are DRY!
  3. In a large bowl, toss your chicken wings into the coating mixture and ensure that each wing is evenly coated.
  4. Using baking sheet (preferably with a wire rack), place the chicken wings in a single layer and cook for 15 minutes at 400 degrees, flip and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the wings from the oven and coat in the sauce.
  6. Return to the oven for a final 10 minutes or until the sauce has caramelized.
  7. NOTE: using a wire rack helps with the air circulation and ensures that the entire wing gets crispy and not just the tops.
  8. Remove from oven and garnish.
