I have been teaching my kids to cook. Not complicated stuff yet, but lots of the basics: cookies, pizza (including the homemade dough), brownies, muffins, cakes. They’re constantly asking for wings so this recipe for spicy molasses wings is their new task. It’s easy — the marinade has barely a handful of ingredients and they cook without much fuss.
I remember learning to cook alongside my mom, licking the bowl and the beaters mostly.
My first cake, after I moved on from the Easy-Bake Oven, was a Jello cake. Then there were cheese-and-bacon-things, Kraft pizzas and zucchini casserole.
I made wings for the first time last winter and that’s what got my kids hooked on them.
So now it’s their turn.
Spicy Molasses Wing Recipe
1/3 cup soy sauce or tamari
1/3 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
1 tsp fresh ginger or ½ tsp. dried ginger
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
¼-1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper (Use cayenne for more heat)
2 lbs. chicken wings or drumsticks
2 Tbsp. chopped chives
In a large bowl combine marinade ingredients (first 5 ingredients). Add the chicken and let marinate in the fridge, covered, for 30 minutes to overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Spread wings in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet (one with a rim).
Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and flip.
Return to oven for another 10-15 minutes.
- To finish, broil for 5 minutes and flip. Broil another 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven, transfer to a plate and sprinkle with chopped chives.
