These chicken wings were great! I have a friend who is a salesman for a well-known chicken distributor, so I can get a lot of chicken wings at a reasonable price. Since it's NFL playoff time, I've been trying a lot of chicken wing recipes. After serving these, my wife, my guests, and I all give five stars. The crispy skin and the soy sauce created a robust, sweet, mouth watering combination. Absolutely incredible.
