Pumpkin Spice Glazed Wings
Serves: 24


  • 3 cups pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups Cajun seasoning
  • 12 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 12 Tablespoons pumpkin spice
  • 6 Tablespoons granulated onion
  • 5 Tablespoons pink salt
  • 3 Tablespoons ground mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, melted


  • 24 lbs chicken wings
  • 1.5 cups cornstarch
  • 1.5 cups flour

Pumpkin Spice Glaze

  1. Combine maple syrup, Cajun seasoning, dark brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, granulated onion, salt, mustard powder, granulated garlic and melted butter in a large stainless bowl. Whisk to incorporate. 


  1. Season wings lightly with the dry ingredients above. I usually reserve a little before I add the melted butter.
  2. Set the fryer to 375°F. For each serving, toss 1 pound of wings with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch/flour mixture until well coated. Fry until golden brown. 
  3. Drain wings and transfer to a large bowl with the pumpkin spice glaze. Toss to coat. Serve.
