Chicken wings are a favorite in my home. Never knowing how to make them until recently, I used to buy them from fast-food restaurants when ordering pizza. I advanced my culinary skills when I found pre-made wings at the grocery store in the freezer aisle.

Soon it became uneconomical to purchase pre-made chicken wings, but I still wanted to offer for dinner what my family really enjoys.

I learned how to make chicken wings from raw chicken instead of buying pre-made at an extra cost. A package of raw chicken wings costs approximately $10 to feed a family of 4. When I go to the grocery store, I'm always on the lookout for meat sales and discount coupons. Just before the sold by date has expired, grocery stores mark down their meat. I often buy meat with $2 coupons. A tray of raw chicken wings will cost $8 compared to $11.99 or more for a less amount of pre-made.

Homemade barbecue sauce is always a nice touch. If you use your own recipe for barbecue, by all means use it here. I buy a honey flavored barbecue sauce for $1 a bottle and can't seem to make my own as inexpensively.

      Hi Paul! Thanks for commenting! I have never tried to make my own sauce because I get a brand on sale for $1. I'd rather learn to make it homemade though.

      I love wings. Have you ever tried making your own honey bbq sauce? I have a great recipe that I should turn into a Hub.
