- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 garlic cloves, fine chopped
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
- Salt and fresh ground pepper
- 3 lbs chicken wings
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except chicken wings to make marinade.
- Add chicken, mix to coat well and refrigerate 2 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 200 °C (400 °F).
- Line a cooking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove chicken wings from marinade, shaking off and reserving marinade. Arrange wings on cooking sheet and place in oven 30 minutes, turning from time to time.

- Meanwhile, pour remaining marinade into a small saucepan and, over low heat, simmer to thicken 5 minutes. Serve as a dipping sauce to dunk chicken wings.
