We love chicken wings! It is a fun meal option, and much healthier to make at home than the deep fried ones served at restaurants. I buy the fresh ones from Costco, and usually split the packs in two, freezing one & cooking the other right away. I make a few different kinds, this recipe is my current favourite.
(As a make ahead option, put the wings and sauce in a Ziploc bag, it will marinate in the fridge. Or freeze the bag of wings & sauce, thawing the night before you want to make it in fridge. Then pop on baking sheet & bake when ready.)
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large cookie sheet with foil, and give it a spray with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together:
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup Chutney – a smoother chutney works best, I prefer apricot, peach or mango.
- 2 TB soy sauce
- 2 TB W sauce
- 1 Teaspoon of fresh minced garlic (or more if you love garlic)
- Optional: as a variation, add 1/2 tsp curry powder
This recipe is easy to half/double as it is a ratio recipe. So adjust according to the amount of wings you have. A Costco pack contains about 4-5 dozen or so of fresh wings, so this recipe is good for about 2 dozen (in my estimation anyways – all packs are sold by weight and vary).
Add wings to bowl & coat well in sauce. Transfer this mixture to the cookie sheet. Arrange the wings in a singe layer. (If making ahead, mix the sauce in a large Ziploc bag & then add wings to it).
Bake for 25 minutes in centre of oven. Take out and give them a stir. Turn broiler on & broil them for 5 minutes (still on middle rack). The sauce should be slightly thickened, and the biggest wing cut open should have no pink.
Take out, stir, and serve!
