Easy, gluten-free barbecue chicken wings that oven bake in under an hour!


  • 2 pounds fresh or thawed chicken wings and drummettes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. arrowroot or corn starch
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (low sugar preferred)
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/21 Tbsp. red pepper flakes
  • Chopped green onion or chives for garnishment, if preferred


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add the salt, pepper, and arrowroot starch to a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the wings and toss to coat.
  3. Place the wings onto a broiler pan, or place a cooling rack onto a baking sheet and place the wings on top of the cooling rack. This will allow heat to circulate the wings as they bake.
  4. Place the wings into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the wings are fully cooked.
  5. While the wings are cooking, add the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes to a saucepan. Whisk to combine and heat over medium-low heat – stirring occasionally.
  6. When the wings have finished cooking, remove from oven. Using kitchen tongs, individually dip each wing into the sauce and place back onto the cooling rack.
  7. Once sauced, place the wings back into the oven and turn the oven setting to broil. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken and bubble. Be careful not to burn.
  8. Remove wings from the oven, garnish with chopped green onions or chives, if preferred, then serve immediately.


  • If the barbecue sauce you choose is high in sugar content, you can omit the brown sugar.
  • Air Fryer option – cook the wings for 25 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Then dip in sauce and serve.
