Hello my lovelies! I hope everyone is doing well! I’ve missed you guys!
My trip to Ontario was FANTASTIC! It was SO nice to see my family again, like I mentioned before, it had been years since I spent anytime with them; I made dinner one night, drank wine, played ball hockey with my brother…all in all a wonderful week. Regardless though, isn’t it nice to get home and back into a normal routine?
So today, I have a PHENOMENAL wing recipe for you to chow down on while watching the Super Bowl this weekend. I have never really followed football much (primarily because I never fully understood the game), but lately I have had an interest to better understand the game; it’ll never replace my love for hockey (go Oilers!) but I’ve enjoyed learning more about it and love that I have a new sport to watch on Sundays while creating wonderful recipes for you guys. I still need to decide who my NFL team is going to be…
Ok so back to these wings…………You’ll probably want a cigarette after eating them…they are THAT good….total foodgasm.
Growing up, every February we would start tapping the maple trees around our house…nothing beats good ol’ fashioned Canadian maple syrup….am I right!?
There are two primary keys to making these delicious wings…
The first is to ensure that you get a crispy skin on your wings…. look at how nice and crispy those wings are!
Secondly, toss the wings really well to ensure they get evenly coated in all that maple bacon goodness!
I hope everyone has an awesome Super Bowl LI! I promise it’ll be even better with these wings……you probably won’t even care who wins 😉
- 1 lb of wings
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
- 1 1/2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 1/2 TBSP Coconut Sugar
- 1 TBSP Coconut Aminos or Soy Sauce
- 3 Slices Bacon, cooked
- Bacon drippings from the bacon, cooled*
- Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
- Salt & Pepper
- Pulse the cooked bacon in a food processor until it is finely chopped. Set aside. Pour the bacon drippings into a small bowl and allow to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Pat the wings dry with some paper towel and rub some of the cooled bacon drippings all over the wings and season with salt & pepper.
- Bake the wings for 30 minutes or until the skin is nice and crispy and the chicken is cooked through
- Meanwhile, make the glaze. Combine the rest of the ingredients into a medium sized sauce pan and bring to a boil on medium-low heat until it thickens, stirring occasionally. Careful not to let it burn. Set aside.
- Once the wings are cooked, toss them into a bowl and pour the glaze over the wings and toss until all the wings are evenly coated.
- Garnish with any leftover ground bacon you have and serve.
- Allow the bacon drippings to cool until it begins to solidify, similar texture to softened butter.
