Brown Sugar and Molasses Fried Chicken Wings Recipe: This ultimate combination of savory and sweet will be a major hit at your next party! I love combining sugar with fried food! When I made these wings I couldn’t help but devour all of them in one sitting. I found that good old classic ranch dressing did the best job of complimenting this wonderful flavors.
The honey and molasses make such a nice glaze to these bad boys! Feel free to throw the sauce on the side if you prefer to do a little manual dipping. I of course, always fry my wings, I just love the crunch that it provides. However, if you are looking for a healthier option, you can always bake these in the oven at about 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes. It’s a much longer process but since the brown sugar molasses sauce is put on at the end, you can go for either option.
Don’t forget to keep a little glaze on the side for after you coat the wings. Pouring the molasses brown sugar on top makes for an amazing presentation when serving these tasty treats to guests.
