Wings Take Flight

Funny thing happened over the weekend. My overzealous TYPE A nature bent enough to give the grocery list to the husband who offered. 3 pounds of wings (game day!) was on it. And 3 pounds were delivered…frozen. So we both learned something. I learned to write the word fresh if that's what I want. He learned I'm just as nuts as always. BTW the frozen wings work just fine as promised by the Perdue family – just use a sided baking sheet for the extra moisture.

Ingredients

3 lbs of wings, fresh or frozen, but cut into flats and drumsticks. If using fresh, save those little meatless extra pieces for stock.

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup orange juice

2-3 cloves garlic, chopped fine

1 Tablespoon-ish Sesame seeds (optional)

2 pinches pepper flakes (optional)

Salt & pepper to taste

3 scallions, chopped (optional)

Pre-heat 400 degree oven. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly oiled.

Cook wings 15 minutes, flip and cook 15 minutes more (or less if they're browning and look almost done.

Meanwhile combine all the other ingredients minus scallions. Separate glaze equally in two. Toss the wings in half, return to oven. 10 minutes or until they start to crisp. Flip, glaze with other half and broil 2-3 minutes. Decorate with scallions.

Eat – B
