  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings, split, then tips removed, or drummers
  • undefined

For the bourbon BBQ glaze:

  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1 cup orange marmalade or orange preserves
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • undefined


Pre-heat the oven to 450ºF.

Bring a large pot of water up to a bubble and par-cook the chicken for about 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

Whisk together the bourbon, marmalade, brown sugar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a medium size saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until reduced by half. Remove from the heat.

Place the wings onto a baking sheet and roast the chicken for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.

Transfer the wings to a large bowl; pour the bourbon sauce over them and toss.
