Recently, my book group decided that instead of our traditional pot luck dinner, we would all just bring appetizers instead. I wasn't very enthusiastic about this plan. When I eat a meal of appetizers I tend to eat way too much (after all, they're just appetizers) or I end up vaguely dissatisfied. With this in mind, I decided I would prepare a hardy offering and made these chicken wings. They are a bit messy but tasty. The only hard part of splitting the chicken wings, but you have to do it. Sorry. Also, the ingredient amounts seem odd, but that's because I increased the recipe to feed a crowd.
4 and 1/4 lbs chicken wings, split and tips discarded
2/3 cup and teaspoons soy sauce
2/3 cup and 2 teaspoons honey
1/3 cup and 1 teaspoon molasses
2 tablespoons and 2 and 1/2 teaspoons chile sauce
1 and 1//2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 and 3/4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
-Place chicken in shallow medium dish.
-In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce, honey, molasses, chile sauce, ground ginger and garlic. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate about an hour, turning occasionally.
-Preheat over to 375.
-In a large baking dish, arrange chicken in single layer. Bake about 50 minutes, brushing with remaning mixture and turning often. I served these room temperature.
