These baked bourbon maple chicken wings are another firm family favourite, which follow the “baked not fried is better for you” rule. I didn’t say they were “good” for you, just better! Just like those delicious baked polenta chips I shared with you a couple of weeks ago.
Sticky, tender and finger licking wings. Trust me, there will be a lot of finger licking action, you won’t be able to stop yourself. The full flavour sauce coating these babies is quite addictive.
Not a chicken wing fan? It’s okay, we may not understand you, but we do forgive you for that crazy quirk. I know there are a few of you out there, and luckily this recipe works just as well with chicken legs or thigh fillets. Just remember to adjust your cooking time accordingly.
