Sweet & Sticky Dr Pepper Wings are the perfect chicken wing recipe that produces a sweet and savory wing.
Football season is officially here! While we are cheering for our New England team, we are always ready for a homegating adventure. You see, when you have young kids tailgating fun does not really happen. Gone are the days of trunk parties, late nights at the stadiums, and heading to games on a whim.
These days, it is all about the home gating. Who is playing, who is coming over, and what will we all be eating. My job is to typically create the football menu, which comes easily to me. I love to cook and whip up sweet and savory pairings that our whole “team” will love.
That is why I am so excited to share today’s featured home gating recipe which happens to be Sweet & Sticky Dr Pepper® Wings. For years, I have heard that you can take a 12 ounce can or bottle of Dr Pepper and make only the tastiest, stickiest, yummiest wings ever! So, I decided to use my base chicken wing recipe and add some Dr Pepper goodness to it.
I love Shaw’s because they always have everything I need to create my homegating recipes.
From cupcakes to popcorn, and everything in between- Shaw’s has everything you will need to make your next party a success.
Anyone in the mood for some Sweet & Sticky Dr Pepper Wings? You can get this recipe for the BEST football season wings below! Be sure to print it out because this chicken wing recipe is a keeper that you will want to recreate the entire college football season!
Our game day celebrations always include a soda the whole family can enjoy and that is why we love Dr Pepper. White cheddar popcorn, chips and salsa, and mixed nuts also are always a must! We love the salty side of homegating as you can tell, but sometimes we opt for some cookies or a cupcake too!
These Sweet & Sticky Dr Pepper Wings are so easy to eat and are not spicy so the kids can also enjoy them. Next time I make them I might add a little pepper sauce to kick things up a notch.
I bet they would also be so good served with a side of ranch. There are so many possibilities on how you can serve and enjoy these sticky and sweet wings!
