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)

Good but not great. My chicken never got "sticky" and there was twice as much liquid in the end. Will keep looking. Thanks anyway.

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.

Ok, I tuned it up a bit, I added 1 teaspoon of minced fresh garlic, 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger, 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar, extra cornsyrup, and some cornstarch (the juice from the chicken made the sauce not sticky anymore) also, I was out of white wine, so I used triple sec. everyone who ate them said they were delish, I will make again for my husband, he ate them all up.

These were good. I added some grated fresh ginger to give it a little kick. I had the same problem that others did with the sauce not getting sticky, so the second time making these I only put half the sauce on the chicken and the other half I reduced on the stove. I then added the reduced sauce the last 1/2 of the cooking time....sticky results. Thanks for a new recipe.

The whole family liked this chicken. I made it with chicken thighs and boneless breast pieces as this is what I had on hand. I marinated overnight before transferring to pan and baking. The chicken was so tasty and flavorful. I thickened the leftover pan juices with cornstarch and used to put over rice served with the meal. MY husband really loved it. Will make again using the drummies sometimes!
