Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 8 servings
â€¢12 whole chicken wings (about 2 pounds)
â€¢3/4 cup soy sauce
â€¢1/4 cup water
â€¢1/2 cup packed brown sugar
â€¢1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
â€¢1 teaspoon garlic powder
â€¢Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tips. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Place the wings in a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass bowl. Pour the remaining marinade over wings; turn to coat. Seal or cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain and discard marinade. Place the wings in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 1 hour, brushing several times with reserved soy sauce mixture during the last 30 minutes of baking. Refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
