Sweet and spicy, these pair well with every occasion that calls for chicken wings. I don't always think wings are good, but I could easily down an entire platter of these. Of course, baked wings aren't as crispy as fried ones, but they are much easier to make.

Pro-tip: if you want extra spiciness, swap traditional syrup for our Ghosted syrup.



  • Baking sheet


  • 1 pound cut chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons neutral cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha more or less depending on heat tolerance
  • 1 scallion minced; optional



Prepare the Chicken Wings:

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry and transfer to a bowl. Pour the oil on top and toss to combine. Season with paprika, sugar, salt, garlic powder and black pepper and toss until all the wings are coated with the seasonings.
  • Pour the maple syrup and sriracha into the bowl and toss again until coated.

Bake the Wings:

  • Arrange the wings on the lined baking sheet. Transfer to the oven for 45 minutes until completely cooked through. If desired, broil for 1-2 minutes to crisp up the skin.

To Serve:

  • Arrange the wings on a platter and serve with minced scallion on top. Enjoy!
