Wing Wednesday: Baked Apple Butter Brown Sugar Wings

This week’s wing deliciousness is brought to you by one of my new favorite food blogs, Damn Delicious.  I’ve pinned and prepared quite a few recipes from the Damn Delicious recipe repertoire and it’s everything I hope my little blog will grow into some day.

Baked brown sugar and apple butter sticky sweetness.  It’s also paired with a sour cream and sririacha dipping sauce, for an added creamy kick.  Thanks to this recipe, I now have an entire jar of apple butter to get creative with. (I’m talking to you, Pinterest.)

INGREDIENTS

  • chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha, or more to taste
FOR THE APPLE BUTTER GLAZE
  • 1/4 cup Musselman’s apple butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

5. Place into oven and bake for 35 minutes.

6. While wings are baking, prepare the dipping sauce.  Simply stir together the sour cream and the desired amount of Sriracha (depending on how spicy you want your dipping sauce).  If you aren’t sure, start small and add little by little until you’ve reached a spice level you’re happy with.

Bon appétit!
