Sweet and Sticky Wings

Friday, June 5, 2009

Colleen had these Sweet and Sticky Wings on her blog and they looked so good! Drumsticks were on sale so I didn't actually make any wings, just drummies! It was the perfect Friday night meal for Andrew and his friend! Speaking of Andrew, we got a letter in the mail yesterday congratulating him for being one of only 25 kids in his grade to be placed in advanced math next year! Not that I am surprised, this is the child that got 6th in a state mathletics competition. I am just so proud of him... and thankful he got his dad's intelligence ;-)

Ingredients
2 pounds chicken wings,tips removed (or in my case drumsticks)
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple drained
Optional- sprinkling of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper

Directions
Cut the wings into two pieces and thow away the tips. Put the chicken in a greased baking dish big enough so that they do not touch each other and are in a single layer. Stir the soy sauce, brown sugar and drained pineapple together and pour over the chicken wings. If you like your wings sweet and spicy, just add some crushed red pepper flakes to the liquid mixture before baking.
Colleen buys the wings that are called party wings (frozen and already cut up). She doesn't even thaw them, just toss them with the soy/brown sugar/pineapple mixture and bake them at 375 for 1½ hours (turning every 20 minutes). My chicken legs weren't frozen and they were done in an hour. I know you are thinking that is way too long, but it isn't, trust me. It takes that long for the chicken to get super tender. Your chicken will be nice and shiney and sticky when its ready.
The soy/sugar mixture will become very dark. Do not serve this...throw it away.

I'm tickled that you tried the recipe! I've never been able to get the right result in an hour...maybe our ovens are different. I hope your son liked them.
