Now, realistically you have 3 ways to go about this recipe: HONEY style or MAPLE style or SPICY PEANUT style. To do this, quite simply you add one of the following:
- Maple Syrup & Brown Sugar
- Peanut butter
All three of these sauces have their merits... it is up to you and your kitchen cupboard to decide which one you'll choose. In my honest opinion you should make all three!!!
NOTE: This is a 2 step recipe, where you'll be cooking the wings in a separate mixture, and adding the sauce to them post-cooking.
1/4 cup Hotmaple Smokey Habanero Sauce
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
And, choose one of these 3 sauce options / flavors
- Honey Sauce: 1/3 cup natural honey
- Maple Sauce: 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup + 2 Tbs. brown sugar
- Spicy Peanut: 1/3 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for the pan
2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (shake)
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Pat Dry the Chicken wings with paper towel, and place in a large bowl
3. Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil.
Cooking the Wings:
In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the melted butter, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour the mixture over the wings and toss well to coat. Spread the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the wings until browned and crisp, 45 to 55 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the sauce:
Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add the sauce ingredients together and stir until the mixture bubbles gently & sugars are dissolved. Careful to not bring to a boil or caramelize the sugars. Remove from the heat and set aside.
FINALLY... We Coat them!
Carefully remove the wings from the baking sheet and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warm sauce over the wings and gently toss to coat. Transfer the wings to a serving platter and drizzle with more Hotmaple Smokey Habanero for an extra kick!
