The big reveal!
After 30 minutes, your chicken wings should be all done. Let them cool for about 10 minutes before eating. Some ideas for versatility with this recipe: *Cook these for an easy dinner, and pair with sides like salad, mashed potatoes, or stuffing. *Tear the meat off the bones and mix with mayonnaise to make a simple yet tasty chicken salad that can be put on a sandwich or enjoyed by itself. *After cooking, cover wings and refrigerate for no more than a day before reheating. To reheat, place wings uncovered in a 375 degree oven and cook until hot, for about 10-15 minutes. *Pair with some blue cheese for a tasty afternoon snack. Now you're ready to feed your family, your New Year's Eve guests, or your football fans. Enjoy!

We left ours in the fridge overnight to really let the marinade do its job, but if you only have an hour, that is perfectly fine for this recipe. 3. When you're ready to cook the wings, place them …

Since the snow storm forced my in-laws to cancel their holiday party, we were given three pounds of chicken wings and decided to try our hands at this family-favorite! We hope you'll enjoy it, too, whether for a New Year's Eve party or a Sunday afternoon watching the Patriots. Here are the ingredients you will need: *3 pounds of chicken wings *2/3 cup of soy sauce (we had to improvise and use Worcestershire sauce, which worked well as a substitute) *1/2 cup of honey *2 tablespoons vegetable oil *2 teaspoons five spice powder *2 cloves garlic, …
