These Sweet Hot Wings aren't only hot in flavor... they're a hot party appetizer that will have your guests' mouths watering as soon as they arrive!

What You'll Need

  • 5 pounds chicken wings (about 18)
  • 1 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups hot sauce (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Blue cheese or Ranch dressing
  • Celery sticks

What to Do

  1. Cut off and discard wing tips; cut wings in half at joint.

  2. Combine syrup and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well. Reserve 1-1/2 cups marinade for serving as a dipping sauce; cover and chill. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic freezer bag; add chicken, and seal. Chill 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.

  3. Preheat the broiler. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Place chicken skin side up on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan. Broil 3" from heat 10 to 12 minutes or until browned.

  4. Place wings in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW setting 4 hours. Serve with reserved 1-1/2 cups marinade, dressing, and celery sticks.


For testing, we used a medium-heat hot sauce. If you choose to go with a hotter sauce, decrease the amount to 1-1/2 cups.

If you can't tolerate can you use something else, such as chili sauce?
