Tired of the same ol’ buffalo and BBQ sauces? Try spreading your wings with a new balsamic-sugar glaze. Sweet and mildly tangy, these have a taste that’ll appeal to any crowd. —Gretchen Whelan, San Francisco

  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1-1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar


  1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain chicken and discard marinade; place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until no longer pink, turning every 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine brown sugar and reserved marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half.
  4. Place wings in a large bowl. Pour glaze over wings and toss to coat. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

"This is so sweet and savory. I absolutely LOVE this recipe! It was simple to make and quick. I used wings, then switched to drumsticks for more meat. The glaze is what makes this recipe amazing."

"These were good - I was expecting a little more from them. Next time will throw them onthe grill after glazing."
