Maple Garlic Chicken Wings

Watching football while enjoying sticky chicken wings and a cold brewed beverage is a sport in itself. Baking then broiling chicken wing pieces keeps the chicken moist, yet crisps up the skin.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Baking Time: 50 minutes
Broiling Time: about 2 minutes
Serves 6 as an appetizer,
Makes about 34 wing pieces

2-1/2 lb (1.25 kg) Ontario Chicken Wing Pieces (no tips)
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup (125 mL) Ontario Maple Syrup
1 tbsp (15 mL) each Dijon mustard and soy sauce
1/4 tsp (1 mL) crushed red pepper flakes
1 clove Ontario Garlic, minced

Line large shallow rimmed baking pan with parchment paper. Arrange chicken wing pieces in single layer on the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Bake at 400°F (200°C) oven for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, mustard, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, and garlic.

Drain fat from pan. Pour maple sauce over wings; toss to coat evenly.

Bake 20 minutes, turning once until wings are cooked when pierced with a knife. Broil until wings are brown and crispy, turning wings as needed, 1 to 2 minutes.

Place on large platter and let cool about 10 minutes before serving. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
