Chicken Wings

1/4 cup butter
3 tbsp. tomato ketchup
2 tbsp. bbq sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
2 tsp. sriracha hot sauce (add less or more depending on how hot you want your wings)
1 tsp. worcestershire
salt to taste (amount really depends on whether you're using salted or unsalted butter)

1. Mix everything together in a saucepan over low flame until the butter emulsifies into the rest of the ingredients.

2. In large container with a lid, put cooked wings and pour sauce on top.

3. Shake, shake, shake until all the wings are coated with the sauce.

4. Serve with blue cheese dressing* and celery sticks.

*Mash blue cheese into sour cream. Add a splash of worcestershire.

Traditionally, this recipe calls for deep fried wings but I actually cook my wings in the oven. No fuss, no muss. Plus I can do LOTS of wings without having to slave over a splattering pot of hot oil. For instance, today, I made about 50 wings, which fit nicely in my oven all in one go.

Place wing pieces in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment (to prevent sticking). Bake in a 450 oven for 15-20 minutes. Flip chicken pieces over and bake 15-20 minutes more until nice and golden brown.
