We asked the chef at Jake Melnick’s (41 E. Superior) the recipe for their Maple Bacon Bourbon chicken wings.

Whether you are hosting the game or headed to someone’s place for a watch party, give this recipe a try for a winning food situation.

Recipe:
4 slices thick cut smoked bacon (SLC prefers Neiman Ranch or Neuske’s)
4 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 cup prepared apple sauce
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 bourbon whiskey
2 Tbs soy sauce
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs honey
1 Tbs hot sauce

Cut the bacon into 1/2 in strips. In a medium size skillet brown until almost crisp over med-high heat. Then add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes or until browned. Whisk in remaining ingredients and simmer until sauce thickens (about 5-7 mins).
