Ingredients

  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. hot sauce
  • 3 lbs. chicken wingettes and drumettes

Directions

  • Combine the maple syrup, chili sauce, soy sauce, and hot sauce in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Reserve ½ cup of the mixture in a separate bowl. Add the wings and toss to coat. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, top it with a metal cooling rack, and spray the rack with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Drain the wings then arrange them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 50 minutes, basting the wings every 5 minutes with the reserved marinade during the last 20 minutes of cooking. The wings are ready when they reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F and they are browned and the glaze is sticky.
  • Cool 5 minutes before serving.
