Two weeks ago I went to an end-of-season softball party for my daughter’s softball team. Everyone brought a little something, but the chicken wings really stuck out.
Lori, the hostess with the mostest, made her famous wings. This year, I asked her for the recipe. When she told me the ingredients I almost fell off my stool. Chicken wings, teriyaki sauce and brown sugar. That’s it. How could three little ingredients make such a tasty chicken wing?
You cook these wings for three hours, turn them once halfway through, and keep the oven at 350 degrees throughout the cooking time. At 350 degrees for three hours, you’d think they’d dry out, but instead they caramelize and become deliciously sweet and sticky.
So, if you’re planning on watching the Pats game this Sunday, grab a few bags of frozen wings and the other two ingredients and in three hours you’ll have yourself some great wings.
Lori's Famous Chicken Wings
Two 5 lb. bags frozen chicken wings
2 cups teriyaki sauce
2 cups brown sugar (light or dark)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place frozen chicken wings in baking dish (I used a large roasting pan with high sides because there is a lot of liquid). Whisk together the teriyaki sauce and brown sugar until sugar dissolves. Pour teriyaki-sugar mixture over chicken wings. Bake at 350 degrees for 1.5 hours. Turn wings. Continue baking for an additional 1.5 hours. I covered the wings for the first 1.5 hours and took the foil off for the last 1.5 hours and they came out perfect.
