Chicken Wings with Cranberry-Molasses Glaze

I know what you’re thinking – cranberry sauce with molasses?! Don’t knock it before you try it, lol. After all, molasses is used for basting meat anyhow, so I thought, why not? Furthermore, I was out of barbecue sauce and wanted something to glaze my wings with. I mixed a concoction of cranberry sauce, molasses and brown sugar; go easy on the molasses, because the stuff could be overpowering. Depending on the amount of wings you’re preparing, here’s what you will need:

  • 2 lbs wings (sectioned)
  • 2 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 1 tsp unsulfured molasses
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  1. Season wings with salt, black pepper and onion powder.
  2. Bake for about 45 minutes.
  3. Baste wings, then throw off excess fat.
  4. Blend the ingredients for glaze in a bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds.
  5. Brush glaze on wings and allow to bake for an additional 15 – 20 minutes.

Hope you enjoy!!
