Maple Bacon Bourbon Wings

I took two of my favorite recipes that call for a sauce–honey garlic chicken and maple bourbon wings and mixed them together! The sauce is sweet, tangy but with a fun bite at the end from the bourbon.



  • 4 slices of bacon
  • Precut chicken wings
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/4 Low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 Ketchup
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425′ and cook chicken wings in vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until crispy.
  2. Dice onions very fine or grate them. Cut bacon into very small dices.
  3. Sautee the onion and bacon on a high heat until the bacon is crispy.
  4. Add one shot of your bourbon whiskey of choice. Let alcohol burn off for 30 seconds.
  5. Turn heat down to a simmer. Add 1/4 cup of ketchup, 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 3 tbsp maple syrup, salt, pepper, garlic, powder and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. IMG_9449
  6. Simmer on a low heat for 5 minutes.
  7. When the wings are done, put in a medium size mixing bowl and pour the sauce over the wings. Toss the wings in the sauce. At this point you can put the wings back in the oven on a high broil if you’d like, but it tastes even better without that.

The best part about these wings is you can make it as a dinner or an appetizer. I served the wings with a garlic herb roasted potato, which I cooked at the same time I made the wings.


Much love xo
