    Altered ingredient amounts. These chicken wings were delicious -- even my husband loved them and he's not a chicken wing fan! I made a few modifications which made a big difference: add much more garlic (2 Tbsp minced), ginger (1 tbsp minced), hot sauce (sweet Korean red pepper paste, 1 Tbsp), 1 Tbsp brown sugar, 1 Tbsp vinegar. These had to cook way longer than 15 minutes for me, more like 40 minutes. Then, to dry them out, I placed them in 1 layer in a casserole dish and baked them at 200 for half an hour. Fantastic with steamed rice and broccoli : )  -  18 Jul 2008


    Something else. Excellent recipe! I added sesame seeds about 1TBl. in second step. After,I took the wings out of the sauce and put them on a baking tray lined with foil and a couple of Tbl. of the sauce and let them crisp at 220 degrees for 15 min. Then I thickened the sauce with cornflour. Wow! this was delicious over white rice! Cheers!  -  18 Jul 2008
