We really liked this!! I used boneless chicken thighs instead of wings, and it was yummy! Hubby rated it a 7! :O)
These wings are truly delicious! I took other reviewers' suggestions and added more chopped garlic, some red pepper flakes and cornstarch (about 1 tsp) and cooked it on the stove for about a minute or two--only until very SLIGHTLY thickened. Poured over wings and baked for an hour, basting about twice. They were a hit! Can't wait to make again.
Fantastic recipe! My husband and so enjoyed the chicken! Unfortunately I only had 2 lbs. of chicken on hand to use in this recipe, and after my husband and I ate the 2 lbs., I wished I'd of had the 3 lbs. of chicken. When I was mixing the ingredients, I used a low sodium soy sauce which I purchased at Festival Foods. The brand was Essential Everyday, and it only had 580 mg of sodium in it. I didn't add any salt, but I did use 2 cloves of garlic (minced). I did lightly grease the baking pan, before adding the chicken and the sauce, and I baked the chicken for 30 minutes, then flipped it over, and continued baking for another 30 minutes. And it was perfectly done and caramelized within the hour. I would bake as per the instructions, but just be sure to turn the chicken over after the first 30 minutes of baking. By the way I wanted to mention, while the chicken was baking away in the oven, my whole house smelled absolutely wonderful, kind'a like Chicken Teriyaki. I will definitely be making this chicken again! Thank you Theresa/Thunderbird for sharing this recipe. It's definitely a keeper!!
Love this! Now a Family fave!
Great recipe.....instead of regular chicken wings I used wingettes. What I did notice immediately was the sauce was way to much. So I eyed how much I poured on the chicken and froze the left over sauce for the next time. I also changed up the recipe by adding shredded ginger to the sauce and added more ketchup (while baking). The ketchup gave it that BBQ/caramelized look. Delicious and my picky 11 year old loved it!!! Thank you
Noticed that some of reviews complaints were the sauce was too salty so I will try this recipe using Braggs(liquid amino-natural soy sauce alternative) its not salty like reg.soy sauce.
The day I made this, the flavor was really good, but the next day the leftovers tasted AMAZING! From now on, if serving this for entertaining, I'll make the day before and reheat.
Very good & very easy ! I also took the suggestion from other people & browned the wings in the oven for about 20 mins at 350. I used sodium reduced soya sauce and also used 1/2 cup brown sugar & about 1/2 cup of honey. Added some cayenne pepper & Franks red hot for some spice.
I am totally going to try this!
I agree with Greg In San Diego that the wings will stew instead of caramelize if one was to follow the recipe exactly. I marinade the chicken overnight, drain chicken but save the marinade, line them in baking dish, bake as directed but basting them with saved marinade halfway and broil the last part of the cooking with the rest of the marinade.
