What You'll Need

  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 cup maple syrup (dark or grade B)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
  • 3 green onions (chopped)
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Optional: dash of cayenne pepper
  • Garnish: cilantro, sesame seeds, or chopped green onions

How to Make It

  1. Place a large disposable baking pan on a large foil-lined baking sheet. If you don't have a disposable pan, line a large baking pan bottom and sides with heavy duty foil.
  2. Wash the chicken wings and pat dry. With kitchen shears, cut off wing tips and discard them. Cut each trimmed wing into two pieces at the joint.
  3. In a large cup or small bowl, combine the maple syrup, brown sugar, garlic, green onions, soy sauce, teriyaki, and peppers.
  1. Arrange the chicken wing pieces in the prepared baking pan and pour the sauce over them.
  2. Bake the wings for 1 hour at 350 F, turning 3 to 4 times. Increase the oven temperature to 400 F and bake for about 20 to 30 minutes longer, turning the wings every 10 minutes to brown evenly.
  3. Remove the wings to a serving dish and garnish with chopped cilantro, sesame seeds, or chopped green onion.
