Sweet Chipotle Wing Glaze

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 1 min

I love a little spicy and a little sweet. While my husband and son brutalize them selves by eating fire on their wings I enjoy these. I use Tabascos Chipotle hot sauce. You can also add more or less of the hot sauce to suit your own taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Heat in microwave for 1 minute This is to melt the sugar and meld all the flavors.
  3. Cool. If you pour the glaze warm it tends to be thin and doesn't really adhere as well.
  4. Pour over cooked wings and toss.

This didn't really do it for dh & I although the kids liked it. I served it over tofu sticks instead of chicken. It was waaaayyyyyy too sweet. I used close to 1TB chipotke sauce & added extra garlic & onion powder & it was still waaayyy too sweet. I think Susie D. has a great idea to use some molasses & fresh garlic. It needs more depth. I brought it to a boil stovetop for just a minute vs. using the microwave. That worked well. Made for PAC 4/09.

I hesitate to rate this with stars as I did things quite differently, but it was so good I am going to. I didn't have brown sugar corn syrup so (after looking at recipes here) I used white and added molasses. I replaced the garlic powder with 3 cloves of minced garlic & added more chipolte pepper sauce. After following your instructions on making the glaze I poured this over breaded boneless chicken strips, slid into the oven in a foil lined pan, and baked. I turned them once while baking. They came out in a thickened dark, spicy glaze. Just yum! Thank you for sharing your idea & the inspiration. Made for Fall 08 Pick A Chef.
