Beau's Sweet-Sour Chicken Wings Recipe

Step 1

Cut off spurs from chicken wing-tips and rinse chicken wings. Place in pressure cooker with water; bring to pressure and cook at high heat for up to five minutes. Remove from pressure cooker and place cooked-out fat in wide-mouthed, tapered jar for other uses.

Step 2

Blend all ingredients except chicken and Tabasco (or hot sauce) until fairly even consistency, with no large chunks of ginger or garlic.

Step 3

Place 3/4 of sauce in pan. Roll wings in sauce; remove wings to broiler pan (with slotted top). Bake at 325 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and spoon about half of remaining sauce on top of each piece; broil for 5 minutes. Add Tabasco or other hot pepper sauces to taste and serve.

Beau''s notes:

Use vinegar "which has been used to keep a supply of bird''s-eye peppers."

Whenever you work with poultry you should be very careful to keep your hands, utensils and work surface sanitary.
