About The Author


  1. 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 just found out its made by Knorr…Chicken Powder

      • What part in the store did you find it? I have not found it yet here

  2. Right what is ckn powder?

  3. 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!

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

  5. 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.

  6. I’m thinking poultry seasoning for chicken powder.

  7. 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.

    • Chicken powder, Asian grocery stores or ethnic food aisles in bigger stores. Pretty much like chicken bullion. This recipe seems like a little too much work. Just try Cattleman’s Honey BBQ sauce. Cook breaded boneless wings, sauce in a sealable container (coat to personal preference) and shake it up!

  8. Why waste the time, just buy Cattleman’s Honey BBQ sauce.

  9. I googled chicken powder and it explains it and also shows pictures of packages of it !

    • Chicken Powder = Knorr Brand

  10. knorr chicken powder ingredients

    Salt, Maltodextrin, Flavour enhancer (E621, E635), Cornstarch, Sugar, Chicken Meat And Fat, Permitted flavouring (contains Egg, Soy), Soy sauce (contains Wheat), Palm fat and Spice.

  11. I wish I could find a BBQ that tastes like theirs. I’ve tried several brands and none are close. Kraft, Sweet Baby Ray’s, Cookies, Masterpiece… Any suggestions?
