Ron’s Honeyed Chicken Wings

These are great - excellent for the holidays, parties, or football games!  

Ron’s Honeyed Chicken Wings: 

This recipe requires extra time for marination

4-to-5 lb. chicken wings, sliced in half
1 c. honey
½ c. soy sauce
6-to-8 cloves of garlic, crushed
½ tsp. Asian chili oil
½ tsp. dried thyme

Combine all ingredients, marinating 2-to-3 hr. or overnight. Preheat oven to 375 deg. F. Bake 40 minutes in a single layer, turning halfway through.

See my post of June 10, 2011 indexed as Appetizers: Chicken-Based featuring three different types of Chicken Wings). Ron and I decided to pit his wings against mine (I made my Sticky Ginger Wings and he made the recipe above. Youll find my wings at 

Together, we cooked 4 lb. (2 kg) of wings and then sat down to eat. We called this The Great Chicken Wing Cook-Off! Who won? Youll find the answer below!

We baked our wings in identical dishes - Ron’s clear ...

And mine tinted blue, so we could tell our wings apart.

Ron’s Honeyed Chicken Wings are marinated.

My Sticky Ginger Wings need no marination.

We baked both sets of wings, side-by-side

With Ron’s wings on the left, and mine with a sprinkling 
of sesame seeds on the right, which wing won?

The answer? I liked Rons wings best. He preferred mine. Why dont you decide? We hope youll try all our wing recipes!
