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
- 1/4 Low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 Ketchup
- 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
- Vegetable oil
- Preheat oven to 425′ and cook chicken wings in vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until crispy.
- Dice onions very fine or grate them. Cut bacon into very small dices.
- Sautee the onion and bacon on a high heat until the bacon is crispy.
- Add one shot of your bourbon whiskey of choice. Let alcohol burn off for 30 seconds.
- 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.
- Simmer on a low heat for 5 minutes.
- 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
