Chicken wings are wonderfully crispy good on their own, but you can make them even better with bourbon. The combination of flavors entices guests at your next gathering to really dig into the goodness. Really, who can resist the combination of smooth bourbon and crisp chicken with the hint of smoky maple syrup? I sure can't.
Finish the wings with a dusting of freshly cracked black pepper, which really elevates the smoky flavor of the wings.
