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.
My DS thought they were so good, he was sneaking his brothers :) Now that's good! We will make these again because we all enjoyed them! DH rescued the last 3 wings before going into the refrigerator, and saved me from having to bag them up. I let them get nice and crisp, keeping them in the oven a little longer than stated time, cause we like them best that way. Great wings! Thanks for sharing!
Hi KITTENCAL; Oh WOW, WOW, WOW. This did not quite blow my mind off, but came so close to it. I certainly found it difficult to stop eating the wings as they were very, very good. I decide to add 2 tablespoons of Tabasco Sauce and 1 tablespoon of Chili powder, as I wanted something a little on the Firey side. Will be making another batch today.....can't stop!!! Thanks for posting this recipe. "Uncle Bill"
