These very sticky wings have been a favorite since childhood, when my mom would fix up a batch of these with a side of macaroni & cheese and a green salad. Now, my kids always ask for Oma's Sticky Wings.
- 1 lb chicken wings
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon pepper
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄3 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- Place wings (frozen or thawed) into pan of lukewarm water for 30 minutes, changing water every 5 to 10 minutes.
- Remove wings from water and pat dry.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place wings on single layer on broiling rack, and bake for 30 minutes, turning once.
- While chicken is cooking, create glaze by combining sugar, cornstarch, salt, ginger, and lemon pepper in a medium saucepan, and mix well.
- Add water, lemon juice, and soy sauce to sugar mixture stirring until well blended.
- Heat glaze mixture slowly, stirring occasionally, until sauce begins thickening. Once thickening starts, stir constantly until fully thickened.
- Once wings have finished cooking for the first 30 minutes, remove from oven and dip each wing in glaze, coating well.
- Return wings to oven, and an additional 30 to 40 minutes until done.
A few nights ago, I was craving some hot wings but since my son is just a baby, I needed another chicken recipe that wasn't spicy. I remembered my mom making some sweet chicken wings when I was younger. This recipe was pretty similar! I added some sesame seeds on to the wings. My son seemed to really like them. I tried some too and they were pretty similar to what my mom's. I used your sauce combo...but I used a different way of making the wings. Instead of putting the wings in lukewarm water, I boiled water and cooked them for 10-12 minutes. I then coated them lightly in flour and put it in a deep frier, then tossed the chicken and sauce together. YUM! =)
