- 3 dozen chicken wings
- 1 cup honey
- 3/4 cup soy sauce (Kikkoman preferred for this dish)
- 1/4 cup crushed and chopped garlic
- 1/2 cup ginger, grated or finely sliced
Before preparing this dish, remove the tips from the chicken wings and cut the wings in half at the joint. The honey may be softened in the microwave for 45 seconds before using.
Combine the honey, ginger, soy sauce and garlic in a bowl. Arrange the chicken in a large baking pan and pour the sauce mixture over the chicken. Make sure the sauce covers the chicken completely, but if not, add some stock or water to cover.
Cover the pan of chicken tightly with foil and bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 3 hours. Remove the foil from the pan of chicken, increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for an additional 45 minutes, turning the chicken once or twice in the process.
The wings will be a rich dark brown color when done and the sauce should be reduced by at least 2/3. You may garnish this dish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and some sprigs of cilantro for color, or some slivered green onions. Serve hot and enjoy!
This dish goes well with steamed or fried rice and fresh vegetables.
