Servings 5 people



  • 4 tbs Bourbon
  • 6 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 6 tbs molassas
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 6 tbs honey
  • 4 lbs chicken wings


  • 3/4 cup Bourbon, divided
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbs hotsauce


  • Combine all marinade ingredients except the chicken in a bowl, stir until combined.
  • Toss the chicken in the marinade until coated. (I like to do this step in a ziplock bag instead of a bowl.)
  • Refrigerate and let rest at least 30 minutes, but up to a few hours.
  • Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • Over medium heat in a medium saucepan, boil 1/2 cup Bourbon until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Whisk in remaining 1/4 cup Bourbon, honey, vinegar, ketchup, and hot sauce. Stirring occasionally, bring mix to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Keep warm and let rest while chicken is baking.
  • Bake chicken until golden and juice is clear when the thickest part is cut to the bone, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oven and brush on sauce.
  • Bake 5-10 minutes more to thicken the sauce and glaze it on.
  • Grab plenty of napkins and enjoy!
