Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large baking sheet.

  • Whisk cornstarch, chipotle pepper, and salt together in a large bowl. Place chicken wings into the chili mixture; stir until wings are evenly coated. Arrange wings about an inch apart on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden on top, about 30 minutes; turn wings over and bake an additional 20 minutes.

  • Remove wings from oven; drizzle with maple syrup. Return wings to the oven and bake until deeply golden, about 10 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Add the maple syrup near the end of the cooking time or the sugars may burn.

Use a large spoon to toss the chicken wings in the dry ingredients; chipotle powder can burn.

The baking time on these wings is way too long thus they were over cooked and dry. I cut the chipotle in half and it was quite spicy. Someone else mentioned about the maple syrup burning... you need to watch it carefully. If I made these again I think I would bake at 350 and cut the time to at the most 20 minutes per side.
