Maple-Glazed Chicken Wings Recipe

Maple-Glazed Chicken Wings Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 2 to 3 pounds whole chicken wings
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip section. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine remaining ingredients. Set aside 1 cup for basting and refrigerate. Add chicken to remaining marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally. Brush with reserved marinade. Grill or broil, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"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."
