    cup packed light-brown sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

    tablespoons cider vinegar

    tablespoons soy sauce

  • tablespoons of honey

  • 2

    cloves of garlic minced

    pounds chicken drumettes or wings, patted dry and seasoned with salt and pepper.


BBQ Sauce Wings: In a medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire, and vinegar; Honey Garlic Wings: Combine the brown sugar with the cornstarch. Add the water, soy sauce, honey and garlic to a pot and bring to a boil stirring constantly until thickened. Reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes stirring occasionally until ready to use. Set aside 1 cup sauce for tossing raw chicken; use rest for baked chicken. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds; line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil. Divide drumettes between baking sheets, and toss with reserved 1 cup sauce. Bake chicken until opaque throughout, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating sheets and tossing chicken halfway through. Toss baked drumettes with 1/2 cup sauce, and serve with remaining sauce on the side.
