Bourbon Apple Glazed Chicken Wings Recipe

There’s enough fried fare to go around on gameday—mix it up with bourbon apple glazed chicken wings, a sweet-and-tangy dish that’s braised then baked.

Bourbon Apple Glazed Chicken Wings

Serves 4


1 cup Maker’s Mark® Bourbon
2 lbs. chicken wings, trimmed
1 can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed (12 ounces)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
4 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tbsp. maple syrup


Combine all of the ingredients in a medium pot.

Bring to boil on high heat and then reduce to a simmer for 30-40 minutes until the wings are tender and the glaze has reduced, coating the wings.

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Remove the wings from the pot and transfer to a parchment lined sheet tray.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the wings begin to color and the glaze becomes shiny.

Garnish with minced scallions and apple.

Serve immediately.
