Chipotle chicken wings with maple sauce

We took inspiration from Southern flavour for these chipotle chicken wings with maple sauce. And they go down so well with a side of mac ‘n’ cheese!

SERVES 4–6 // COOKING TIME 1 hour 5 min

For the maple sauce
⅓ cup tomato sauce
4 tbsp maple syrup
3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Dijon mustard
½ jalapeño, finely chopped
For the chipotle rub
2 tsp chipotle seasoning
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp olive oil
For the wings
12 chicken wings
Chopped spring onion, to garnish
Sesame seeds, to garnish

For the maple sauce
1. Simmer all the ingredients over medium heat for 10 minutes, then set aside.
For the chipotle rub
1. Combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
For the wings
1. Pat the wings dry with a paper towel, then coat evenly with the rub.
2. Braai over medium-hot coals for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the coals and baste in the sauce. Braai for another 5–10 minutes.
3. Garnish the chipotle chicken wings with the spring onion and sesame seeds. Serve with the remaining sauce and some mac ‘n’ cheese on the side.
