These Baked Brown Sugar Dijon Chicken Wings were bound to happen.

I love this flavour combination on fantastic baked ham or roast pork loin but when one reader asked if I’d ever tried it on chicken the answer was no. My immediate thought though, was that it would make a delicious glaze for chicken wings.

With several teenagers on hand for Wing Night, I tried these out to some willing taste testers and the reviews were great. I think the brown sugar adds a greater depth of flavour than honey does with dijon and I think I’ll be trying it on bone-in chicken breasts soon too.

I️ made these wings and there were really good. I️ made them crispy though. I️ lightly floured them and bumped up the temperature to 400 degrees, then the last 10 minutes I️ bumped it up to 500 and that glaze was crackling. Will be doing this again real soon

I'd cool them uncovered to try to preserve the glaze as much as possible.

Can this recipe be done in a slow cooker?

I don't see how the glaze would stay on in a slow cooker. Glazing os about high heat.

This looks fabulous, but I have a question: Does the basting every 10 mins (40 mins. total) start AFTER they have baked for 35 mins., or is it DURING the initial bake time? I don't want to overbake inadvertently.

in about the last 20 minutes. They can go for up to 45 minutes total depending on size.

Do you think this would work using Maple Syrup instead of the brown sugar?

Barry C. Parsons

You might get it to work if you simmered the maple syrup to reduce it by about half. Maple syrup tends to be a very thin consistency for glazes, compared to say, honey. You'd probably have to thicken it up first.
