Nighttime games two weeks in a row is an endurance test for sure, so for this weekend's SNF match-up, we've decided to go with something sweet and sticky. Why? You'll actually want to stay up late just to finish eating these babies!

This recipe is from a 2018 episode of "Calling All Cooks" on the Food Network. Don't think it's on anymore, so it's a good thing we printed this out (though it's a bit stained and starting to fade). The syrup adds a real nice fall flavor, just make sure you get real Maine-made maple syrup and not the generic kind meant for pancakes.

Maple Chicken Wings:

These take almost two hours baking time, with an increase in the temp for the last 45 minutes, so plan accordingly.

3 to 4 pounds chicken wings, 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce, 1/2 cup lite soy sauce, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1/2 tablespoon black pepper, 1 to 2 cups maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350. Cut off chicken wing tips and snip the skin between the joints, then place them in a large disposable baking pan. Add the maple syrup, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, garlic, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Toss to coat.

Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 1 hour, tossing every 15 to 20 minutes. The liquid will gradually evaporate the longer you cook it. After 1 hour, increase your oven temp to 425. Turn wings to coat and cook an additional 45 minutes.

That's it. Have a tall cool one handy and have plenty {and we mean plenty!} of moist napkins at the ready. Once you start in, you can't really touch anything else, but they're so worth it!
