We don't have to tell you about the magic that happens when sweet meets salty, how the cloying sweetness of the sugar is both halted and lifted into a perfect balance by the savory side of things. In chicken, it's even better: The honey, sugar, and maple syrup in these recipes creates a sweet glaze that, when paired with the umami-packed chicken, makes for an irresistible pairing. It's the secret behind honey-glazed wings and sweet-and-sour chicken, all harnessed in one place:
