Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Pounds whole chicken wings
  • 1 Cup maple syrup
  • 2/3 Cups chile sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons salt
  • 2 Teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • Oil, for frying

Directions

Cut the wings into 3 sections and discard the wing tips. In a large saucepan, combine the syrup, chile sauce, lime juice, and mustard. Bring to a boil and cook until the liquid is reduced to about 1 cup.

Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, paprika, and pepper, add the wings a few at a time, and shake to coat.

In a skillet or deep-fryer, heat enough oil to 375 degrees. Fry the wings, a few at a time, for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Transfer the wings to a large bowl and add the sauce mixture and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Chile Shopping Tip

Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Chile Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
