Maple BBQ Wings

We have a group of friends that get together and have a game night where we play charades or catch phrase.  It is a potluck so everyone brings a dish and there is always too much food and drink, but I’d rather have too much food and drink than not enough!  This night I was in a panic!  I didn’t know what to make, but I had plenty of maple syrup that was a result of a sale at the grocery store, and something nagged at me… then a light bulb came on and this recipe floated up from the dark recesses of my memory.  I had all the ingredients except for the chicken so it would be a short trip to the store and it didn’t take much time to cook at all!  I have to be honest; I have never made wings before and I had some serious doubts about this recipe, but everyone loved it!!

Ingredients

1 package (5 pounds) frozen wingettes or 5 pounds chicken wings each cut into 2 pieces
1 1/2 teaspoon salt

Maple BBQ Sauce:

2 Cup Ketchup
1 Cup Maple Syrup
12 tablespoons cider vinegar

Preparation

1.   Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Place wing pieces in a large deep roasting pan and sprinkle with salt- no need to thaw.  Bake at 425 for 1 hour, stirring frequently, until cooked through and meat begins to pull away from the ends.  Remove pan to a wire rack.  Using tongs, place wings onto jelly roll pans, shaking off any excess fat.
2.   Heat oven to broil.  Stir together ingredients for the maple BBQ sauce, divide sauce in half.  Brush enough sauce onto wings to coat.  Broil 8 minutes or until crispy.  Remove, turn wings over, brush with more sauce.  Broil for another 8 minutes.  Remove and let cool briefly, 1 minute.  Boil any leftover sauce for 3 to 5 minutes.  Serve wings immediately with maple sauce on the side.

Alternatively let cool completely and refrigerate for up to 1 day.  To serve, uncover, reheat at 350 degrees, turning occasionally for 20 minutes or until hot; serve with reheated maple sauce.

Don't fret, most are healthy since I am a health nut, but some will definitely not be health conscious. What is life without a little indulgence?
