Oriental Chicken Wings
Tired of all the carb-laden appetizers that show up at holiday parties?
Looking for a great appetizer recipe packed with taste, texture and protein?
This wing recipe is always a hit! Easy to make (takes some time in the oven - but totally worth it). Assemble the night before, toss in the oven before your event and they are ready to go.
2-3 pounds chicken wings (I cut the wing into 2 parts if not purchased that way)
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1 tsp dry mustard
1. Place wings (2 pieces) in shallow baking dish (like a 9 x 13 pan)
2. In medium saucepan combine remaining ingredients. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.
3. Pour marinade over wings.
4. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Bake 3 hours uncovered, stirring occasionally.
To serve, I spoon the wings out of the juice onto a platter. You could also keep warm in a crock pot or chafing dish.
Other tip: I typically double or triple this recipe and just use a larger baking dish to fit extra wings. They are so yummy and enjoyed by all ages, there are never leftovers!
