Lately, it has been as if the Mister and I can’t get enough chicken wings in our lives, like his smoked chicken wings. Oh my goodness, those things are absurd they are so yummy.

But, as the weather has just been ridiculously cold lately, even he hasn’t ventured out to his smoker for our chicken wings addiction. I’ve resorted to baking them in the oven but amping up the flavor times a thousand or so. Ha!

That’s where this chicken wing recipe comes into play. Mercy! I think I’ll retire from trying to make one any better to my taste buds. Now, I will say, if you don’t like a sweet and spicy saucy combo on your chicken wings, you might want to cut back on the maple syrup included in the recipe. You could even eliminate it if you prefer. But, if you love sweet and spicy, hot and smokey, then you’ll love these!

  5. Thank you, Robyn. I don’t like wings so I’ll try drumsticks. Have a Happy Monday.

  6. Adding these to the superbowl menu for sure! So delicious!

  7. My goodness, these look amazing. You can see the yumminess if your photos 🙂

  8. Hi! This looks sensational. I am wondering if this would work out as a slow cooker recipe?

  9. oh my god these look so yummy I’m going to try and the next weekend for sure

  10. Will it work without the sera chi sauce and red pepper flakes? Enjoy your website and recipes. Thank you!

  11. Thank You for sharing this recipe. It was sooo goood i forgot to eat my salad. I was going back for more wings and my poor salad was overlooked. This is now my favorite wing recipe.

  12. These were good but the colour of your chicken wings were not the colour of mine I don’t know what yours look like but with the soy and balsamic vinegar it turned brown what’s up with that??

    • Hi April,
      Mine look like those in the photograph. If I pour all of the sauce over the wings at once or let them sit in the sauce longer, then they will definitely be a bit darker. I hope that helps!

    • i too liked the colour in the picture. so i used white balsamic and omitted the soy. they were very good

  13. This was an amazing recipe. I added just a little more syrup to mine. My family Loved them!!!
