    Hubby loves KFC Honey-BBQ wings & I would love to give him this recipe to try, but what the heck is “chicken powder”?
    Don’t know if this is something I use, but call by another name or if it’s something we might not have here in the Texas panhandle.

    I have a cook’s feeling that “Chicken Powder” should read “Garlic Powder”, or “Onion Powder”. I will probably use a tsp of each and see how that works. Unfortunately, they also did not specify what type of BBQ sauce. Maybe hickory, or mesquite, thick or not, also, there are honey bbq sauces on the market. Not sure this is a good recipe.

      Chicken powder is an alternative for chicken bouillon or chicken cube, its entirely different from garlic powder or onion powder they all have different flavor. As far as bbq sauce is concerned you can use any bbq sauce that is easily available to you because there is not much difference in taste of these bbq sauces. Hope your confusion will be clear through this reply, try the recipe hopefully you will find it wonderful!

    “Chicken powder is an alternative for chicken bouillon or chicken cube”. That’s what I though it was!

    chicken powder (ie: chicken bouillon), ok, but still, add that and salt together? seems to me like it would make them a bit too salty.

    also, in the picture, are you making “boneless” honey BBQ chicken wings using slices of boneless chicken breasts?

      Yeah! I tried it with boneless chicken and as far as salty taste is concerned chicken bouillon has much salty flavor so you can avoid axtra bit of salt and make it according to your taste.

    I’m thinking poultry seasoning for chicken powder.

    Where can I buy chicken powder? I have a family member on a salt-free diet and would like to know where I can purchase it. Is it available at any supermarket, ethnic store, health food store or online? My on-line searches have all had responses for chicken bouillon.
