Bourbon Chicken Wings

Cindi Bauer


These are by far "the best" chicken wings I've ever had. I did however, substitute apple juice for the bourbon, and the wings tasted great!

How to Make Bourbon Chicken Wings


  • 1In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, garlic powder, ginger, soy sauce, bourbon (or apple juice) and the ketchup.
  • 2Lightly coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray.
  • 3Place wings in the skillet, and pour the sauce evenly over the chicken.
  • 4Cover skillet, and cook the wings over medium heat for 16-18 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Be sure to turn the wings often, to prevent them from sticking to the skillet.
  • 5Serve wings on a plate or platter, and spoon any additional sauce from the skillet, over the chicken.
  • 6*Note: When preparing this recipe, I used 6 wings and 6 drumettes (about 2 lbs.). Also, cooking time may vary when preparing the wings. The 1st time I prepared them, they were done cooking within 18 minutes. The 2nd time I prepared them, they were done cooking within 16 minutes.
