Maple-Glazed Chicken Wings
Meet the Cook: Some wonderful maple syrup I brought back from my last trip to Vermont is what inspired my recipe. These wings have been a hit with family and friends. They're very versatile - use them for TV snacks, hors d'oeuvres for parties or showers, or appetizers...or double or triple the recipe and make the wings a main dish you can serve with a salad or corn on the cob on the side.
