Reviews for Maple-Glazed Chicken Wings
"Excellent change of taste from just BBQ sauce. Sweet, but with just a little kick to it. However, while the sauce is a good marinade, I found it to thin for basting. I cooked the sauce on a low heat until it had reduced and thickened. Worked very well!"
"This was really good- cut the recipe in half since it was just for my husband and myself."
"Just having moved, & unable to barbeque in a recent snowstorm, I really appreciate the oven baking option; THANK YOU! (I'm about to try the Maple Glazing for dinner New Year's Eve, but with what I have recently purchased fresh: small chicken drumsticks (drumetts?)! ...As well, not having crushed red pepper flakes, I'm will substitute with red Tobasco sauce."
