Step 1

Brush 2 baking sheets with olive oil, place in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 450°F. Toss the wings in a large bowl with the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Divide the wings between the hot baking sheets; use tongs to space them out as much as possible. Roast, switching the pans halfway through, until the wings are crisp and golden, about 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine the cider, 1/3 cup vinegar and the Worcestershire sauce in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then lower the heat to medium and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 12 minutes. Whisk in the butter.

Step 3

Once the wings are done, combine all the wings on one baking sheet and turn on the broiler. Brush the wings with about one-quarter of the cider sauce and broil until glazed, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and broil 1 more minute. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with the remaining cider sauce.

Step 4

Top with sliced scallions.

Delicious simply delicious. The sauce was out of this world good. We loved it, so much flavor. The chicken was crisp, crunchy and perfectly cooked. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite. Kudos to you on Making it into my Best of 2021 Cookbook.

Super tasty! The cider glaze is delicious, but the seasoned wings are amazing all on their own. I didn't have hot smoked paprika, so used half hot paprika and half smoked Hungarian paprika. Oh baby! We'll definitely be having these delectable wings again!

Easy to make and makes for some tasty wings. We loved the cider sauce and dipped our chicken right into the succulent flavor. We also tried it by pouring the sauce over the chicken and heating it up in the toaster oven. The sauce seeped into the wings and it was delicious. Thank you Teresa for sharing!!
