- 6 cloves of garlic
- 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon of black pepper
- 4 lbs of chicken wings
Cookware and Bakeware
- Mixing bowl
- Large baking sheets
Start by preheating the oven to 400°F. While the oven is heating up, mix the orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, pepper, salt, and garlic. You need to mince the garlic finely for maximum flavor. Mix all of the ingredients well with a whisk to ensure everything in incorporated properly.
Add the chicken wings to the bowl and toss all the ingredients together. Make sure all of the chicken wings are covered in the mixture sufficiently. You can let the wings sit in the mixture for a few minutes if desired.
Cover the baking trays with the baking sheets. Remove the chicken wings from the bowl and spread them out on the sheets carefully. Remove around ¼ cup of the orange juice mix from the bowl and set it aside for later. You need to pour the remaining juice over the chicken wings. Make sure every wing gets a good amount of juice.
Place the trays in the oven and bake the chicken wings for about ten minutes. At this point, you need to turn the wings around and pour the remainder of the juice mixture over them. Once the chicken wings are coated completely, place them back in the oven for baking for another ten minutes.
The chicken should be done by now and is ready to serve hot. You can serve it as the main dish or even as an appetizer at your next party or get-together.
