Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken drumettes and/or wings
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley® Original Ranch Salad® Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Belgian wheat beer (or another smooth, light-colored beer)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup store-bought plum sauce
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. 2. Combine the ranch seasoning, flour and salt in a gallon zip-top bag. Shake to combine.
  3. 3. Place the chicken in the bag and shake to coat.
  4. 4. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack on the sheet.
  5. 5. Place the chicken on the wire rack, shaking excess seasoning off each piece.
  6. 6. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes, until the skin is crisp and beginning to turn golden. You may still be able to see flour on the chicken.
  7. 7. Meanwhile, combine the beer and maple syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a steady simmer and cook until the liquid has reduced to about 1/4 cup. It should be thick and syrupy.
  8. 8. Remove the chicken from the oven and brush with a layer of glaze and reduce heat to 425°F. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes. Repeat the glazing/baking process 2 or 3 more times, flipping the wings each time.
  9. 9. Arrange the wings on a platter and serve with plum sauce on the side. Garnish with sliced green onions.
