"I switched out pork ribs for chicken. From Quick and Simple February 2006. Serve with a tossed green salad and jasmine rice! Mmm!"

    Perfect! Nicely balanced flavors. Happy that the ketchup is blended in well. ;) I used a 2.5lb bag of wings/drumettes. I coated them & put them in the hot oven while still frozen. I gave it a little longer & they came out perfectly. About 40 minutes in, I coated them in the rest of the sauce that I scraped from the bowl. This was enough for 3 people.

    Excellent, with the flavour of the 5-spice coming through loud and clear. Dark and sticky outside, perfectly-cooked and juicy inside. These were polished off around the oven - they didn't even make it to the table!

    I should have looked at the previous reviewer and taken note as I ended up with what could only be described as well charred wings, I only made 6 of them using half a recipe for the DM and the DS so had a taste of half a wing when serving and even though the outside was burnt the meat was moist and very flavoursome and was polished off by the DM and DS. Thank you Cookgirl, made for Make My Recipe tag game.

    I try lots of chick wing/ marinade recipes; this one gets top marks! I left the wings whole except for discarding the tips and to prevent too much charring I tented foil over 'em for the final 15 mins.
