How Many Calories in 10 Chicken Wings?

There's a pub near to me that offer thrice-weekly wing night. I have great memories of these wing nights, when my friends and I gather for drinks, laughs and some of the best chicken wings that have ever passed through my lips. They're perfectly seasoned and fried to perfection. Unfortunately, these wings night memories may have to be just that -- memories. Because animal skin deep fried and battered can't be good for you, right? At least they're low in carbs -- something I use to justify my indulgence even though I don't follow a low-carb plan. Anyway, I decided to do some investigating into the caloric and fat value of chicken wings. Now it's your turn to decide whether they have:

A) 750 cal, 45 g of fat
B) 1050 cal, 75 g of fat
C) 1590 cal, 107 g or fat
D) 850 cal, 67 g of fat

The answer is C) 1590 cal 107 g or fat. Oh. my god. That is more than an entires day worth of calories in 10 measly wings. I am shocked. Appalled. And a little sad that I have to give up my wing nights. I can't justify that much fat and calories.

But there is a bright side. Since I found this info out, I've been experimenting with alternative wing recipes, using whole wheat bread crumbs, seasoning and the oven instead of the deep fryer. The recipe is not perfected yet, but I'm working on it.

How to Make BBQ Chicken in the Oven: Oven Baked Barbecue Chicken Recipe

Barbecue chicken is perhaps the tastiest and most popular form of cooked chicken after fried chicken. Following is an easy BBQ chicken recipe that uses the oven.
Barbecued chicken is, along with fried chicken, one of the most popular types of cooked chicken. Making barbecue chicken in the oven has one clear advantage over cooking it on the grill (aside from the fact that it allows people without grills to make it at home). The oven, unlike the grill, can be used to perfectly and evenly cook meat, resulting in a delicious and somewhat crispy outside and skin, and perfectly cooked meat on the inside. Following are instructions for how to make BBQ chicken in the oven. Cooking chicken this way is a relatively healthy way to cook chicken.

Oven Baked BBQ Chicken Recipe Ingredients
  • 3 lbs Chicken (wings, drumsticks, breasts, thighs)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (any kind that is preferred)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chicken seasonings, if desired

How to Make BBQ Chicken in the Oven
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, ketchup, honey, Worcestershire sauce, and salt, and whisk them all together until they are evenly blended.
  2. Grease a cookie sheet with a little butter or olive oil. Take the thawed chicken, and either paint the sauce mixture onto all sides of each piece with a brush, or spoon it onto each piece, and spread it around with fingers. Place each piece of uncooked BBQ chicken on the cookie sheet.
  3. Sprinkle pepper and chicken seasonings onto each piece of chicken coated with the BBQ sauce on the sheet, and place it all in the oven. For smaller pieces of chicken, such as drumsticks and wings, it may take as few as fifteen minutes to cook. However, for large breasts and thighs, it may take up to about half of an hour or even forty minutes to cook, depending on the size of each piece. It may be a good idea to flip each piece about half way through its cooking.
  4. After they have cooked, remove the barbecued chicken pieces from the oven, and set them aside for a few minutes. Then, serve and eat!
  5. Oven Baked Barbecue Chicken Recipe Considerations
  6. This oven baked barbecue chicken recipe may be altered slightly, according to taste. Try using a little hot sauce for a spicier BBQ chicken recipe. Add hot sauce into the bowl with the barbecue sauce, ketchup, and honey. Use more honey or ketchup for a sweeter result.
When cooking BBQ chicken in the oven, it may be necessary to re-coat the pieces of chicken once during the cooking process, as the juices that come out of the chicken during its baking may wash some of the sauce off. When the chicken is finished, it cannot hurt to apply a thin and final coat of the sauce to the already cooked chicken before eating. This should maximize flavor.
