Lacquered Chicken Wings

No recipe image available.Delicious chicken wings with an incredible Asian-inspired glaze.

Recipe Ingredients:

12 large chicken wings
1/2 cup dark soy sauce
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Cut off the wing tips with a sharp heavy knife and discard. Cut wings into two pieces separating them at the joint.
  2. Place the wings in a shallow roasting pan. Combine the soy sauce and sugar with a liberal grinding of black pepper and pour the mixture over the chicken, coating it well. Let marinate 30 minutes.
  3. Then bake wings for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and turn each piece with tongs. (For a more elegant look, transfer wings to a wire rack at this point in the recipe.) Bake an additional 30 minutes. Turn again and bake 15 minutes longer. The wings will be a rich, dark brown and very tender. Serve on a platter.

Makes 24 pieces. (Recipe can be doubled.)

Tip: If desired, sprinkle cooked wings with rice vinegar before serving, and/or sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top.
