Sticky Wings


Best-Ever Sticky Wings
Ingredients

o 2 1/2 lbs chicken wings ( separated at joint, with wing tips discarded or saved to make stock)
o 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
o 1/2 cup liquid honey
o 2 tablespoons ketchup
o 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
o 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425F; have ready a shallow baking pan that you've lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Arrange chicken wings in prepared pan; lightly sprinkle both sides of wings with salt and pepper (go easy on the salt).
3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
4. While wings are in oven, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, ketchup, garlic powder and ginger; please note that the original recipe called for minced fresh garlic and minced fresh ginger, but I found they had a tendency to burn easily so went with the dried spices instead.
5. Feel free to use two minced garlic cloves and 1 tsp of freshly minced ginger, instead of the dried spices, if you want to give fresh a go.
6. After the wings have baked for 15 mins, remove from oven and drain off any accumulated fat.
7. Pour the sauce over the wings and return to oven.
8. Bake for 20 more minutes, turning wings over in sauce frequently (I do it every 4 or 5 minutes), so that they are thoroughly coated.
9. Wings should be well glazed and sticky when done.

An all time favorite. Spaghetti with Broccoli, Olive Oil, Garlic, Parmesan, and crushed red pepper.
 
That Spaghetti and Pork look really nice.
It is nice seeing dishes on here as it gives me ideas for when i have to cook for myself.

As of late i have been making an Apple and Rhubarb crumble ( with other fruit ). It is great with cream ( if i say so myself ).

I have rolled oats on top, mixed with warm butter and flour to make it crunchy once in the oven.
I mix 6 apples ( cored/ peeled )/ bunch of Rhubarb ( washed of course ) and put that in a saucepan. I don't like tart rhubarb so i add 4 tbs of brown sugar. Boil away for 15 or so minutes stirring, and take when the water turns all red. A mistake i made a while ago was i had the rhubarb cut too small ( therefore it basically disappeared ) and the apples started to foam ( the sauce became apple- not red from the Rhubarb ) and it was not as good.

Get a big pyrex tray and pour in. What i then do is get 3-4 bananas, cut them and lay them on top. Sprinkle as much blueberries over it as desired. Place the oats over- covering the fruit ( depending on the size of the tray make more or less oats ). Usually this makes for 8 servings though since it is hearty it can be 16. The banana/ blueberries are cooked ( making it gooey ) in the oven whilst the rhubarb/ apple gets warm again in the oven ( same dish still ). I have the oven preheated and place the crumble in at 180 ( may vary for some ovens of course ) for 15- 25 minutes.

I might post a picture later.
