"This recipe uses chicken drumettes, which is the meaty part of the chicken wing. The drumettes are baked in a sticky sauce of corn syrup, soy sauce, sugar and white wine. Fun sticky chicken. Great for parties and picnics."

I also tweeked the recipe, and the result was 12**!! Here's my recipe: 4# wings, 1/2 c light corn syrup, 1 c soy, 1/2 c white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 c honey , 1/2 c white wine, 1 T cayenne pepper, 2 t fresh grated ginger, 2 t dry mustard. Combine all ingredients and pour over chicken in baking pan. Cook at 400 for 45 min, stirring often. If very thin, mix 2T corn starch w/2T water, and add to chicken. Reduce heat to 300 and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours (until thick and sticky) Serve over rice and with wet wipes. (ill be submitting my recipe now)


My Mom used to make a variation of this recipe when I was younger so I was thrilled when I found it! I made it without the white wine and used brown sugar instead of white. We had it for dinner and my husband ate 5 pieces of chicken!


I am on a new eating plan called Michael Thurmon's 6 Week Body Make Over. It includes a LOT of chicken. With a little alteration, this recipe was wonderful. I omitted the corn syrup, used lite soy sauce, brown sugar substitute instead of the white sugar, 1 tsp. minced garlic instead of the garlic powder, and used chicken tenderloins. I placed all this in a ziplock bag and marinated overnight. The next morning I cooked it in my generic George Foreman grill. It was F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S.
