  • 48 small chicken wing pieces, separated from joint, bone-in with skin
  • 4 qts water
  • 48 pieces bacon
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chipotle hot sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
First Boil the Wings
  1. Add water to a large pot, leaving at least 4-5 inches of room from the water to the top of the pot.
  2. Using a large slotted spoon, add chicken wing pieces to simmering water a few at a time. Once water begins to boil, reduce heat to a simmer.
  3. Allow wings to simmer for about 15 minutes. Once done, using a large slotted spoon, remove wings and place on a wire rack. Allow wings to rest for 15-20 minutes, giving them a chance to dry.
  4. Wrap a wing with a piece of bacon.
  5. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, pan fry bacon-wing until bacon is cooked through, making sure to turn over to cook evenly on each side. Repeat for all wings.
For the Sauce
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together all ingredients over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a light boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, whisking often. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. Serve sauce warm on the side, or drizzle over wings before serving.
Recipe Notes

I use Cholula brand hot sauce because I really like the flavor, but you can use your favorite chipotle hot sauce.
