Oat Milk BBQ Chicken Wings
Looking for a delicious chicken wing recipe to liven up your Super Bowl Sunday? How about oat milk chicken wings! We know it sounds crazy, but oat milk is excellent for cooking chicken because it creates a tender, delectable texture, and it helps spread around the flavor of the sauce.
Russell, one of our founders, has been obsessed with finding the perfect wing method and after dozens of tests, he’s found it! Plus, it also works great for entire roast chickens, legs, vegan chicken or whatever you have around.
He adapted concepts from Jamie Oliver's milk chicken recipe to make a super simple, highly versatile method for making chicken wings. Equally perfect for the big game or a busy weeknight.
Super Bowl Favorite and easy enough to be a weeknight life savior!
This best part is, this recipe is astoundingly easy. And you really can’t screw it up. As long as you have chicken, BBQ or wing sauce, and oat milk, you can chuck it all in the oven and you’ve got dinner covered. To spruce it up and create extra flavor, follow the steps below.
It has become a go-to for many of us on the team on weeknights. Sometimes all you have time for is to pour on some sauce and pop something delicious in the oven!
As many wings (or vegan wings) as you want to eat.
Equal parts oat milk to BBQ sauce - (enough to mostly cover your wings).
Butter or olive oil
3-5 whole garlic cloves
1-2 cinnamon sticks
3-4 cardamom pods
1 pinch of rosemary
For 3 lbs of wings we used:
- 1.5 Cups Willa's Oat Milk
- 1.5 Cups of BBQ or Wing sauce. We used Hell's Kitchen Hot Sauce's "Broadway BBQ". This method is so versatile you could use literally any of their sauces and it would be excellent.
Salt and Pepper
In a large skillet, brown as many chicken wings as you want in olive oil or butter. Cast iron works great for this step.
Once browned, set aside chicken and remove excess butter/oil from skillet, but leave the tasty chicken remnants stuck to the pan.
Return wings to the skillet and douse with equal parts Willa's Oat milk and your favorite sauce. Pour 1/2-1 bottle of BBQ sauce over the chicken, then do the same with an equal amount of oat milk. NOTE: Total amount of sauce/oat milk is a matter of preference. My favorite approach is to leave the top of the wings exposed so they crisp up, but if you want saucier wings, add enough mixture to cover them completely. If you want them crispier, leave more of the wings exposed.
Salt and pepper liberally.
For extra flavor, add small amounts of your favorite spice to the sauce. (We liked adding 3-4 whole garlic gloves, one or two cinnamon sticks, a cardamom pod or two, and a pinch of rosemary.
Roast in the oven at 375 for 20-30 mins or until cooked through.
- Remove from the oven. Let cool 10-15 mins. Eat with as much of the leftover sauce as you like.
