Maple-Bourbon Glazed
Chicken Wings !

Real Restaurant
Appetizer Recipe

When I first discovered this recipe for Glazed Chicken Wings  I thought it might be a bit too sweet for many people.

After reducing the amount of maple syrup called for in the original recipe and making one other adjustment, I tried it with the restaurant/lounge guests ...after trying it on my family and friends.

My poor family and friends! ;-) 

Everyone loved these chicken wings. They also said they enjoyed a number of other ways to do chicken wings but that this recipe was a very nice change. 

The solution? I mixed a variety of chicken wing recipes on a single plate (serving).
