Went out last night

and I'm still feeling it this morning! Happy Lunar New Year to those of you who celebrate. We celebrated at a huge festival with some friends, amazing food, entertainment, and of course, carnival rides and games. The boys had great fun at the shooting gallery game but Thatboy ended up empty-handed.

In honor of the Lunar New Year, today's FF recipe has a decidedly Asian twist. I mean, sure she calls them barbecue wings, but really - does your barbecue sauce recipe use soy sauce? And frankly these don't taste like barbecue at all. But they are sweet and sticky with a nice smokey, garlicy backing. They are insanely easy to eat - disappearing right off the plate in a matter of moments. And since the oven does most of the work, I can't think of an easier appetizer/snack/superbowl treat. I mean, who doesn't love wings?

Barbecued Chicken Wings (From The Fannie Farmer Cookbook)
  • 12 chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Remove the wing tips and break each wing into two pieces.
  2. Place in a shallow baking dish. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the wings.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and serve in the baking dish.


  1. Fannie is sure making the rounds at That Girl's home:D

  2. I'm not a big one for wings, but the sauce sounds really good!

  3. Wow you cook a lot! Fanny is getting a work out here! Love this wing recipe, I am a wing person but Himself thinks they are too messy to eat- poor boy. So I make them for me and the kids, he can have PBJ.

  4. These sound really great. I love a sticky chicken wing with honey. Mmm.

  5. not a huge wings fan, but those do look tasty.

  6. i love stuff that mixes soy sauce with something sweet. i'll have to give this a try too!
