BASEBALL PLAYOFFS ARE HERE! For just the THIRD time in my life, my Royals are in the postseason. It is way too exciting and scary…our family gets WAY too into it. Playoffs mean agonizing games, incredibly fun and exciting memories, and also great food. IT’S TAILGATE TIME! These Orange Soda Hot Wings are just what we need to fuel through the next couple weeks.

This baked hot wings recipe is an easy one, and everyone always loves it. I love baked chicken wings (like these Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings), and these are just as delicious. The best part is the orange soda hot wing sauce, of course! That’s what makes them so unique and so addicting!

So make these hot wings for your next big game day appetizer, root for your favorite team, and enjoy!

Hot Wing Sauce

I’m SO excited about baseball playoffs, but also excited about this post! One of my very favorite partnerships this year has been with Zevia soda. You may remember a couple weeks ago when I posted my Margarita Ice Cream Floats. I’m so proud to be partnering with a company that truly cares about its product and it’s ingredients!

Zevia has recently gone COLOR and GMO free…so on top of zero calories now they are zero color and zero GMOs. Such a great option for so many drinks, and even recipes! You’re going to love this Orange Soda Hot Wings recipe! 

October is Non-GMO month and these baked hot wings are the perfect way to celebrate. Zevia is kicking off a fun campaign all about smarter tailgating, and snacking smarter is easier than you might think.

I was able to make this easy (AND SO DELICIOUS) Orange Soda Hot Wing Sauce with only non-GMO products, and you can too! I shopped at Whole Foods (not sponsored…just an easy way to find what I was looking for!), and one trip was all I needed. I’m an no expert, that’s for sure, but I love companies that are trying their best to be transparent, and Zevia is just that. Being informed is important, whichever way you fall on the debate.

How to Make Hot Wing Sauce (with Orange Soda)

I LOVE the addition of the Orange Soda to this hot wing sauce. It gives the baked hot wings such a tangy zip…it’s hard to explain until you try it, but just trust me! I know orange soda isn’t the first thing you’d imagine to use on chicken wings, but it tastes so good. The wing sauce is so simple to make too. Just make it on the stove top while baking hot wings in the oven.

How to make Orange Soda Hot Wing Sauce:

  1. Combine orange soda, hot sauce, honey, garlic, and butter in a saucepan. 
  2. With heat set to medium, bring the sauce to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat, and let the sauce simmer for at least 30 minutes, or until it becomes thick, like a syrup.

Then you just toss the baked hot wings in the sauce once they’re done cooking. So easy!Orange Soda Hot Wings! The perfect mixture of spicy and sweet, these chicken wings are an EASY BAKED APPETIZER perfect for tailgating! Orange soda for the win!

How to Make Baked Hot Wings

Baked hot wings are so tasty. I love how crispy they get, and it’s one of my favorite ways to cook chicken wings. Once you toss them in the orange soda hot wing sauce, they just become UNBELIEVABLY good.

How to make baked hot wings in the oven:

  1. Combine baking powder, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Then place the chicken wings in the bowl and cover them in the mixture.
  2. Arrange wings on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Baked for 30 minutes at 250°F. Then increase the temperature to 425°F and bake another 30-40 minutes.
  4. Make the hot wing sauce on the stove while the wings are baking in the oven.
  5. When the baked wings are done, let them cool for 5 minutes, then toss them in the wing sauce.

Serve em up hot! They don’t really need anything extra since that hot wing sauce is so good…but I always like to have some dipping sauces out anyways. Because dipping is just fun!
