I can't believe I've never posted this recipe! When Michael and I first got married, I was obsessed with finding wing recipes. We love ALL kinds of wings- spicy, sweet, and savory. This was one of the first recipes I tried and has remained one of our favorites! The recipe came from All Recipes. I use dark Karo instead of molasses simply because I don't keep molasses on hand.
3 pounds chicken wings, split and tips discarded
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons chile sauce
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1. Place chicken in a shallow, medium dish. I cover with aluminum foil for easy clean up.
2. In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce, honey, molasses, chile sauce, ground ginger and garlic. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate approximately 1 hour, turning occasionally.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
4. In a large baking dish, arrange chicken in a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven approximately 50 minutes, brushing with remaining soy sauce mixture often and turning once, until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear.
*I make extra sauce and boil it with a little cornstarch and pour it over the finished wings. And of course serve with ranch!
