This recipe was given to me by a gentleman friend that lives back East. He is always cooking up something or other, and this is one of my family's favorites.

pinch tips: How to Debone a Chicken



6 (my house...4)


8 Hr


2 Hr


3-5 lb
chicken wings (i use frozen ones)
1 c
gin or vodka (i use vodka. you don't need the good stuff)
1 c
soy sauce, low sodium
2 Tbsp
brown sugar
1 Tbsp
garlic crushed
1 large
onion chopped
pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

In a 10" x 14" baking pan, spread chicken in an even layer. combine all ingredients and spread over chicken. Cover with aluminum foil and let the chicken get drunk for at least 2 hours (all day is better) turning the chicken every so often. I have the Tupperware marinating container and put the wings (frozen) in it with the sauce and leave it on the counter. It defrosts yet stays cool and is available to flip over every 45 minutes or so.
Cook covered at 350* for 1 hour. Uncover and cook at 325* until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, I leave it about another hour to an hour 1/4. Turn chicken half way through cooking. Meat will fall off the bone.
There is NEVER any leftovers at my house when I cook this. I saved this to post so that I could put a picture, but by the time it hit the table everyone dug in! Sorry!
