Today I’m posting how I made Dusted Chipotle BBQ Wings (Quaker Steak & Lube style), but you could use any flavor. I ordered the sauce and seasoning shaker from their website, but I’m not trying to plug them, so you could use any BBQ sauce and/or seasoning.
Please note that I will usually not be using such specific, pre-made ingredients- we are just huge fans of Quaker Steak wings and wanted the flavors to be as close to authentic as possible.
For two servings (approx 10 wings), you will need:
- 1.5 lbs of chicken wings (I was short on time, so I chose pre-trimmed)
- 1/4c BBQ sauce of your choice
- 1/8c (optional) Dry BBQ seasoning of your choice
- Non-stick spray or vegetable oil
Begin by pre-heating the oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray (or coat with vegetable oil).
Once the oven is pre-heated, place the wings on your baking sheet and bake for an initial 20 minutes.
This is what the wings look like after 20 mins. Take them out of the oven, turn them, and bake for 20 more minutes.
Here they are after 40 minutes. Honestly I could have stood to cook them for another 5 to get a little crispier, but I was HUNGRY! Also, sorry for the weird photo perspective. It makes me dizzy too.
Take the wings out and place in a medium bowl.
This is where my camera battery started dying, so I was turning it off and on to try and get “1 more shot” out. Not that my washed-out, flash-whitened photos are that great to begin with… but it only gets worse from here. Which reminds me… BRB.

Pour in approx 1/4c of BBQ sauce per 10 wings. Toss with forks to evenly distribute the sauce.
And now my parakeet is playing with my keyboard, making it impossible to type. I think he’s offended by this post. Just kidding! He loves to eat chicken!
You can use more sauce if you don’t plan to use a dry seasoning later. It’s all up to you!
Yay, my camera barely made it to the end. I was able to get one last shot in.
I moved the wings to a serving dish and sprinkled with an ample amount of Quaker Steak’s chipotle seasoning. The dry seasoning is entirely optional, but if you are a fan of chipotle flavor, I can’t recommend it enough.
I also ordered this rub to try, but haven’t used it yet. It smells delicious!
If I start feeling industrious, I’ll post a recipe to make your own chipotle seasoning using ground chipotle powder.
Back on track. These wings would be great with a ranch or blue cheese dip. I served them with seasoned fries, but they are great as a stand-alone dish at a party. Especially if there are males involved.
