Maple-Glazed Chicken Wings

Some wonderful maple syrup I brought back from my last trip to Vermont 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. —Janice Henck, Clarkston, Georgia

    Some of the best chicken wings we have ever tried and certainly the best we have ever made at home.

    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.
