I am a chicken wing fanatic, and these were excellent!! I used honey instead of sugar. I also substituted the five-spice powder with garlic powder and lots of course ground black pepper. I am allergic to the anise in the chinese spice. Still turned out excellent tasting. Hubby raved. I also prepared the entire thing in a big ziploc bag! No clean-up, except for the electric skillet!

I added in some fresh ginger pieces and some rice wine vinegar to the marinade, and I used 2 T. brown sugar in place of the sugar. They were lick your lips good and don't forget the napkins!

I added in 1 tsp. Garlic Chili Sauce to the spice mix for a little added flavor, as it blends so well with Chinese and Thai ingredients. My DD and I had a feast! Yummy!
