Sweet and tangy chicken wings: Not all wings are created equal

If you are looking for a new recipe for chicken wings and want something that is different from the usual hot, spicy, volcanic or Buffalo styled wings you have landed on a good choice. This recipe is for baked wings that are marinated overnight and eliminates the work of frying, breading or standing over the stove.

This is not a recipe that can be made and eaten today, the chicken wings need to be marinated overnight to create that unique taste your whole family will crave as an appetizer or light lunch treat.
