I have said this numerous times, I live in Kansas City. We are KNOWN for our BBQ here. I am always looking to sample different sauces for the sake of variety.

I love how easily BBQ sauce glides over the chicken. I like to apply BBQ sauce to the meat directly while it is still warm. This way, the meat soaks up all of the flavor. This can be challenging to accomplish if the sauce is too thick. Be sure to find the perfect brand! I love our local Kansas City, Gates BBQ Sauce.

I chose to add a little zest to this recipe by adding ranch because I had leftover ranch seasoning from the Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole dish that I prepared last week. I also wanted to add ranch because it is the perfect complement to the sweet flavor from the BBQ sauce. You truly can’t go wrong with this combination.

Start planning your game day tailgates now…and keep this recipe in mind!

  • Drizzle the liquid smoke and soy sauce over the chicken.
  • Add the chicken to Ziploc bags. Add the seasonings (including the ranch seasoning) to the bag and shake to ensure the chicken is fully coated. Seal the bags. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Grill the chicken on medium high heat. Flip the chicken a few times to ensure it is fully cooked on both sides. I grilled the chicken for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Cooking time will vary depending on your grill.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
  • Using a cooking brush, coat the chicken with the melted butter and BBQ sauce.
  • Remove the chicken from the grill.
  • Garnish with parsley. Serve!


Prep time does not include time to marinate overnight.

These wings look just amazing! I definitely have not put my grill away yet, even though it's almost OCTOBER and I live in WISCONSIN. A nearby grocery is having a raging sale on wings at the moment, so I know the perfect way to use them. Thanks for the inspo!
