Ingredients

  • 1 dozen organic chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder NOT baking soda
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup Zevia Orange Soda
  • 1/4 cup organic hot sauce such as The Wizard Hot Stuff or Benitos
  • 1/4 cup organic honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250F
  2. In a large bowl, combine baking powder (again, not baking soda) and salt and pepper to taste. Place wings in bowl and coat completely with the mixture.
  3. Place wings on a foil-lined baking sheet, it's okay if they're touching.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Increase heat to 425F and continue baking for another 30-40 minutes.
  6. While the wings cook, make your sauce.
  7. In a saucepan, combine soda, hot sauce, honey, garlic, and butter. Stir to combine. Over medium heat, bring to a boil.
  8. Reduce heat to simmer and continue simmering for at least 30 minutes, or until sauce thickens and becomes more of a syrup.
  9. Remove wings from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
  10. Toss wings in the sauce and serve hot. Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
  11. Enjoy!

So, I'm a Cubs fan and you couldn't be more excited than ME! haha ;-))) Maybe I'll just have to make these awesome wings for tonight's game!
    Becky Hardin
    Girl what are we going to do if by amazing chance our Royals and Cubs play each other in the World Series WHILE WE ARE IN IOWA. I'm seriously already fretting about this! We will have to tell them we can't ride tractors bc we have to watch baseball!!
    Ciara
    Ditto!
Matthew From Nomageddon
Becky. This looks incredible! Always looking for recipes that I could make with "healthy" soda.
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you Matt!! I just love the creative recipes you've been posting!

Gosh Becky, thank you so much for the mention! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the recipe :) Isn't it ridiculously amazing how crispy they turn out? Congratulations on your partnership, what a fabulous fit! I really like the recipes you are creating for them too, really creative. I have to say, I've never tried an orange sauce with wings and though I can't get the same brand of orange soda, I will try this with what we have here! Being the wing-nut I am, no doubt I'll be making a batch this weekend! N x

    Thank you Nagi! And your wing tips are FABULOUS! Your site hits it out of the park every time!

This is sooooo clever, love it!

I totally feel your post season happiness this year - I'm a Cubs fan and we're in the playoffs. Finally. Enough said, right? Loving these wings - can't wait to try them!
Whitni @ A Cookie & A Kiss
I have never used orange soda with my chicken before but I am definitely going to have to try! This looks so good!
Carrie @Frugal Foodie Mama
First of all, these wings sounds delicious! Love the sweet & spicy kick! And second, baseball season came to an end for us this past week when the Pirates lost to the Cubs. I hated to see my husband all depressed for a day, but secretly I am happy to no longer be a baseball season widow, lol. ;)
    Becky Hardin
    Baseball season widow...lol!! i'm always glad when fantasy baseball season ends so that A) we don't have to watch every single darn game B) I don't have to hear details about every player I don't know anymore. LOL! My husband is a Cardinals fan and I'm a Royals fan so we are still very much in the thick of it!!
Jessica @ Sprinkle Some Sugar
These are so interesting, Becky! I would have never thought to use soda in my wing sauce?! Genius! These look seriously delicious.
Stacey @ Bake.Eat.Repeat.
I love wings, such a perfect appetizer, especially for watching sports - although we go for hockey here, not baseball! These wings look fantastic!
    Becky Hardin
    We love hockey too!!! So excited that it's finally started! Thanks for stopping by Stacey :)
