We've wanted to try to re-create these wings for some time, but haven't been sure where to start. Then, I came across a recipe for maple wings in my google reader and became inspired. While the end result didn't really taste much like the Maple Hot wings from The Vine, we both really liked these wings and will be making them again.
Maple Hot Wings
Cook & Prep Time - 20 minutes
6-7 whole chicken wings, divided
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup lite soy sauce
1/4 cup barbeque sauce
1 TBSP minced garlic
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp black pepper
2 serrano peppers, sliced
1 1/3 cups maple syrup
Oil, for frying
Heat oil to 375 degrees. (We do this in our deep fryer).
Meanwhile,in a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, garlic, onion powder, pepper, maple syrup, barbeque sauce, and serrano peppers. Bring to a low boil and simmer to allow it to thicken.
Fry the wings until cooked through (should be about 10 minutes).
Remove serrano peppers. Pour sauce over wings and shake to coat.
