Cider Butterkäse Baked Chicken Wings recipe

Prep: 30 min | Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 3/4 cup dry hard apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 4 ounces (1 cup) Saxon Snowfields Butterkäse Style cheese, shredded


  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Place a greased wire rack on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. Cut wings through joints into three sections; discard wing tips. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange wings in a single layer on rack.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into meat reads 165 degrees F.
  4. Meanwhile, bring the apple cider, hard apple cider, Worcestershire sauce and honey to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally.
  5. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth; stir into cider mixture. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Toss wings with 1/4 cup sauce in a large bowl. Return wings to pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle wings with butterkäse. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
  8. Serve with remaining sauce.
