Honey Chicken Wings

Harvesting honey at Adam's carriage house

Here's a great recipe a friend shared with me a number of years ago. I am posting her original recipe, but as usual, I like to make changes so, you'll see that in my note below.

Honey Chicken Wings

What you will need:

3 pounds chicken wings
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons catsup
1/2 clove garlic or 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place wings, single layered, in a shallow foil-lined baking dish. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over wings. Bake uncovered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Turn wings several times during baking to coat with sauce. If the wings are done baking but the sauce isn't as thick as you'd like it, remove the wings and bake the sauce for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

Michelle's Note: This is a great recipe to make with chicken legs. Follow the same directions above except pre-bake the chicken legs seasoned with salt and pepper at 350 degrees for an hour. Drain off any fat. Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees (honey burns!) and bake an additional hour, turning chicken legs every 20 minutes.

I have been known to use this sauce for shrimp stir-fry too!
