For a game day snack and appetizer, the classic chicken wing is still an all time winner for fun and creative flavors you can make with them. These spicy bourbon wings have the flavor of the bourbon, plus the slight heat of the hot sauce give you a bit of a kick at the end. The skin gets really crispy but the chicken on the inside is still nice and juicy. The main factor is you need to find a great flavor bourbon that has great flavor but don't feel bad about poring it down the sink at the end. I use medium blend Kentucky bourbon that is around 10 dollars a bottle and turns out good, but use whatever quality you enjoy since it is a factor in the flavor.
In a bowl, Combine the garlic, bourbon, ketchup and hot sauce brown sugar until a well combined mixture is formed.
Place the chicken wings in a gallon size storage bag and pour the mixture in, Shake and make sure each wing is fully covered. Let marinate for 4 hours up to 24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a cooling rack on a sheet pan lined with foil or parchment paper. Arrange the chicken wings on top of the cooling rack with spacing between each wing. Making sure the skin side is up. Sprinkle salt and pepper over each wing and back for 25-30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Transfer to a serving dish and serve along with blue cheese dressing or any of your favorite dipping sauces.
