These turned out well, and were a change from a traditional hot wing. I really appreciated that they did not have to be marinated. The cooking time or temperature seemed to be a bit off, because I had to bake them for 55 min. before broiling. I accidentally added extra vinegar because the vinegar from the other wing recipe I was making somehow got dumped in this sauce instead of where it belonged. Whoops! (Someday I might actually be a good cook.) It didn't hurt it too much, but I certainly wouldn't do it on purpose. I used the 3 cloves of garlic of course. I think next time I will take better care to make my onions smaller, and experiment a bit with the oven temperature.
