Ingredients

For the brine

  • 3 quarts water
  • One 750-milliliter bottle white wine
  • 1 1/2 Cup kosher salt
  • 4 Cups sugar
  • 15 Pounds chicken wings, split and rinsed

For the wings

  • 2 Cups garlic powder
  • 2 Cups onion powder
  • 1/2 Cup chili powder
  • 1/4 Cup cayenne
  • 2 Cups Spanish paprika
  • 1 Cup salt
  • 4 quarts all-purpose flour
  • 2 Cups pure maple syrup
  • Two 7-ounce cans chipotle peppers
  • 1 1/4 Cup Buffalo sauce
  • 1 Pound butter, melted
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

For the brine

Combine the water, white wine, salt, and sugar together and mix thoroughly. Add the wings and let them sit for a minimum of 4 hours. 

For the wings

Mix the powders, cayenne, paprika, salt, and flour together thoroughly.

To make the sauce, combine the maple syrup, chipotle peppers, Buffalo sauce, and butter in a blender and purée until well mixed.

Drain the wings from the brine and place in the seasoned flour until fully covered. Shake off excess flour and set aside. Fill a large, heavy skillet halfway with oil and heat to 350 degrees. Fry wings in batches until thoroughly cooked about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheet pan spread evenly apart.

Just before serving, increase the heat to 375 degrees and fry the wings until very crispy (about 2 minutes). Place the wings in a bowl and cover with the maple chipotle sauce. Serve with sliced celery stalks and your favorite blue cheese sauce.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
