Juicy, tender Chipotle Maple Baked Chicken Wings are rubbed in a dry spice rub then baked to crisp perfection before being tossed in a Chipotle Maple sauce that will have you licking your fingers and reaching for more!
I created a monster with my Spice Rack Dry Rubbed Chicken Wings. My husband used to have to beg for us to go to a wing restaurant so he could order chicken wings and now he asks me to pick up a pound of mixed wings at the farmers market and I pick up two!
Dry-rubbed wings are delicious, but messy, saucy wings are even better! The sweet-spicy combo on these wings is out of this world!
First I rubbed a spicy, brown sugar chipotle dry-rub on the wings and then after baking we tossed them in a Chipotle Brown Sugar Sauce to amp up the flavor.
Messy, sweet and spicy, and totally addictive! We made a pound of wings just for the two of us and after the photoshoot, my husband said, “Is this it? Where are yours?”
The only difference in preparation for these wings is we baked them on rack in a rimmed baking sheet to let some of the excess fat drip off as they baked. Just trying to keep this tailgate/party treat as healthy as possible without giving up on that saucy goodness.
There is plenty of sauce, so you can definitely serve some on the side as a dipping sauce. And as I’ve mentioned before…it’s all about the sauce!
Hungry for more? Stay a while; I’ve got you covered!
