Prep Time : 0:35 | Cook Time : 1:10 | Total Time : 1:45 | Serving : 6 person.


  • 6 (about 850g) chicken wings

  • 60ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup

  • 60ml (1/4 cup) bourbon whiskey

  • 2 teaspoons red Tabasco pepper sauce

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • Large pinch of cayenne pepper

Blue cheese sauce

  • 75g (1/4 cup) light sour cream

  • 65g (1/4 cup) mayonnaise

  • 80g Castello blue cheese, coarsely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed


  • Step 1

    Use sharp kitchen scissors to remove and discard the tips from each chicken wing. Cut the wings in half at the joint and place, in a single layer, in a shallow large glass or ovenproof dish.

  • Step 2

    Combine the maple syrup, bourbon, Tabasco sauce, garlic, cumin and cayenne pepper in a jug. Pour over the chicken and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 6 hours to marinate.

  • Step 3

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Remove the wrap. Bake in oven, turning occasionally, for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the chicken is golden.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, to make the blue cheese sauce, place the sour cream, mayonnaise, blue cheese, lemon juice and garlic in the jug of a blender and blend until smooth.

  • Step 5

    Transfer chicken to a serving platter and serve with the sauce.
