I like the ingredients but I thought it needed a little bit more to it. So I also added ginger powder, kechup and fresh garlic. My husband loved it and even my 3 year old ate his.

3 stars as is, but I made a bunch of changes and then they were awesome. 2 cups of soy sauce made it WAY too salty!!! and i use low sodium soy sauce and put less than the full two cups but even so, it was HORRIBLY salty. I basically had to start over and this is how i made it: sautee 4-6 cloves of garlic, fresh ginger, sliced green onions, and 1-2 sliced jalapeno peppers in sesame oil. then add 1/2 c. soy sauce, 1 c. pinapple juice, and about 1/2 c brown sugar. add black pepper, red pepper flakes, white pepper, sracha sauce, and a little honey. at that pnt you can re-evaluate the soy sauce and add more if need be. i tossed my wings in this on the stove and allowed them to cook as the sauce caramelized on top of them. then took them out of the sauce and broiled them for 25 min, tossed them in the sauce on the stove again and let them cook on the stove for another 5 min, and then re-broiled for 10 minutes before serving. my wings were pre-cooked so you may need to broil for longer to cook through, but they cme out amazing

Excellent, although I added fresh ginger & garlic along with sesame seed oil and cooking wine with a hint of hoison sauce. I also tossed before the last 15 minutes of cooking to insure a good coating of the marinade. Oh yeah!

Yummy, yummy, yummy. I made these for superbowl and they were great. I didn't have 5 pounds of chick. wings so I poured some of the marinade off before baking. I also added a little rice wine vinegar to marinade. They were sweet, sticky and delicious. Thanks for the great recipe.

made these New Years Eve for a family party and everyone loved them!! Making them again tonight for supper, follow the recipe exactly and store the recipe in your recipe box, you'll be glad you did! :)

This worked out perfectly. I baked the wings first and then put the sauce (didn't boil) in a crockpot on low to keep warm for my party - amazing!!! This is the best recipe ever (I remember it from being a kid my mom made it too)

I loved this. It’s easy to put together with items readily available in your pantry. The marinade imparts good flavor yet doesn’t overpower the chicken. I marinated the chicken overnight and finished the wings on the grill. Great recipe – so simple. It's great as is but next time I may try a little minced fresh ginger to add some complexity.
