Baked Bourbon Maple Chicken Wings

Baked Bourbon Maple Chicken Wings

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.
