These wings are a Big Hit, Everyone gobbles them up. They are so easy to make and are perfect for BBQ's and Potlucks. They are called mahogany chicken wings, because after cooking, they turn a deep mahogany color from the caramelized marinade coating. Don't shy away from the spices, they add flavor and not too much heat. Enjoy!

  1. Prep chicken wings. Rinse in cold water, pat dry with paper towel, and trim tips. If you desire split wings into drum and wing, to extend portions.
  2. Mix all ingredients, except the chicken, together to prepare marinade.
  3. Add chicken to marinade and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Let chicken marinade in mixture at least one hour but for best flavor marinade over night or up to 48 hours. Place in refrigerator while marinading.
  5. Place chicken in roasting pan spooning a little of the marinade over the wings, there should only be about 1/8 of an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pan. Not too much liquid or the wings will fall apart.

I followed the recipe, as written, and was rewarded with some awesome wings! (I did sub fresh ginger for the powdered...)These were easy (in a ziploc bag) and sticky/sweet/fiery! There was a bit of heat, and it was delish! Thanks so much for sharing, Stars-n-Atoms! These have made it into 'wing rotation!'

These were very good :) I made these as posted with a couple of adjustments, I left out the jalapeno jelly and crushed red pepper flakes as they do not agree with me and used sweet chili sauce in place of red chili-garlic sauce and they were still delicious. This recipe will be added to my "Wing Night" rotation. Thanks for posting! *Made for Spring 2010 PAC*
