15/365 – wings

i’m a day late, but i was sick all day yesterday. never left the house and (in the way only a sick guy could exaggerate) could barely move. so this was actually taken tonight. 


i made wings! not buffalo wings, because it would have been too hot for the kids. but i found an easy enough recipe for mahogany chicken wings on allrecipes.com and they came out great.

3 lbs chicken wings, separated and with the tips discarded (this was absolutely disgusting, by the way)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup molasses
2 tbsp chili sauce
1 tbsp ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

lay the chicken in a flat pan and cover with the marinade, made from everything else mixed together in a medium bowl. cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. bake in an oven at 375 degrees for 50 minutes, basting with the leftover marinade every now and then and flipping halfway through. the stickier you can get that marinade (read: the closer you can get your pan to ruination), the more delicious they’ll be.
