Smoky Chicken Wings

Smoked paprika lends plenty of smoky flavor. Or you can sub 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke for the same savory effect.

Serves: 6


  • 1⁄2 cup maple syrup
  • 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 5 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 pounds canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt


  • To make glaze, combine maple syrup, soy sauce and garlic powder in saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until liquid has reduced to about ½ cup, about 8–10 minutes. Stir in paprika; set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil, and set wire racks in each. Coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In large mixing bowl, toss wings with oil and salt. Arrange on prepared baking sheets. Roast until skin is browned and crisp (safe internal temp. 165°F), about 50 minutes.
  • Toss wings with glaze, and return to baking sheets. Bake 10 more minutes, or until glaze darkens. Let cool 5 minutes before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.
