Wings of Desire
2/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbsp ground or minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-1/2 to 3 lbs. chicken drumettes or wings
1/2 cup coarsely crushed salted peanuts
1 bunch green onions, cut into thin, diagonal slices
In a large mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, orange juice, honey, ginger and
garlic. Mix well and add chicken. Marinate at least 1 hour, or preferably
overnight in the refrigerator. Turn the chicken at least once, as the marinade
will not cover the wings completely.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).
Remove wings from marinade. (Discard marinade.) Place on a lightly oiled
broiling pan. (Line the bottom pan with aluminum foil.) Bake 30 to 40 minutes,
or until browned and cooked through. Remove from oven, transfer to a platter,
and sprinkle with peanuts and green onions.
Makes 4 servings.
