My friend and I spend many a nights trialing new recipes and staying up late and eating them (guess it explains why I can’t lose weight!) and these babies were created on one such night. We made three different types of wings on that night and these were my personal favourite.
1.5kg chicken wings
2.5 tbs bourbon
2.5 tbs honey
1 tbs brown sugar
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp paprika
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup ranch dressing (for serving)
Preheat oven to 220°C and line a large rimmed baking sheet with a metal rack.
In a small bowl, whisk together bourbon, honey, brown sugar, onion powder, paprika and cayenne.
Toss the wings in the bourbon-honey mixture then transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Season wings with salt and pepper. Bake until crispy, about 50 minutes.
Transfer baked wings to a serving plate. Serve with ranch.
