Happy New Year!

After some partying and drunken stupor, we’ve been craving some comfort foods. Enter in chicken wings!

These are by far the best chicken wings ever! Seriously. If I ever entered a contest, it would be with this recipe. They are “oh, so really good”! Just the right amount of sweet with tender chicken. You will have devoured an entire pan before you know it!

The first time I made honey garlic chicken wings was when I was in the mid teens. My little sister has been asking me to make that recipe, but I couldn’t seem to reproduce it. You could also make this recipe on the stove top, by cooking the chicken wings in their marinade till sticky and cooked through.


1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup soft brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3 lbs chicken wings


Line a baking sheet with foil. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, garlic, sesame oil and cayenne. Add chicken wings and toss to coat. Marinate for a few hours. Remove wings from marinade and spread in a single layer on the baking sheet. Reserve marinade. Bake wings for 15 minutes and turn over once during baking. Once done, remove from oven and set aside.

Boil remaining marinade over high heat until thick and syrupy.Toss with chicken wings. Dig in!!
