This recipe pays homage to one of my old happy hour spots. Bahama Breeze was my go-to for wings and time with the ladies before they sadly closed down in my area. My all-time favorite item of choice was their Jamaican Chicken Wings. They were served with a side of spicy barbecue sauce. I would request seasoned sour cream to cool them down. Oh. My. Good. Ness. Bomb!

My version of the recipe has my sweet and spicy barbecue sauce coating the jerk spiced wings instead of serving it on the side. I still serve it with a side of cool creamy seasoned sour cream. This recipe truly rivals one of my hero meals.

What’s in Caribbean barbecue sauce?

Barbecue sauce- Hickory brown sugar barbecue sauce adds a nice smokiness to these spicy wings but you can use any dark barbecue you have.

Honey and habanero peppers- I make my own habanero infused honey but you can use plain honey with a sliced habanero pepper.

Pineapple- Frozen, fresh, or otherwise pineapple will work. Be sure to defrost and drain well before adding it to the sauce.

To make the barbecue sauce:

Stir together all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Then drop the temperature to low and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticky. Turn off the heat and let it rest until ready for use.

How do you make spicy Caribbean barbecue chicken wings?

Walkerswood hot and spicy jerk seasoning is used to season the wings. They are first sprinkled with a little Goya adobo and coated in Walkerswood before being oven-roasted to perfection in a 475 degrees oven. Then the wings get tossed in a spicy-sweet Caribbean barbecue sauce before serving.

Don’t forget the dip!

I prefer to serve these wings with sour cream blended with diced tomato, cilantro, and spices but it’s amazing with my creamy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing too.
