Balsamic Soy-Glazed Chicken Wings
Makes 4 main courses or 6-8 snack servings
4 pounds chicken wings
2 tablespoons Joe and Son’s Chipotle Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup Joe and Son’s Artisinal Honey Balsamic Vinegar OR Coconut Balsamic
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Thinly sliced scallions for garnishing
Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing for dipping, if desired.
Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Line 2 large shallow baking pans (17 by 11 inches) with foil. Put pans in oven and preheat oven to 500°F.
Pat wings dry, then toss with Chipotle Olive Oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and divide between preheated pans, spreading wings in 1 layer. Roast, without turning, until golden and tender, about 35 minutes.
While wings roast, simmer Balsamic Vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar in a 1- to 1 1/2-quart heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 1/3 cup, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted.
Remove roasted wings from oven and let stand in pans 1 minute (to make wings easier to remove from foil), then transfer with tongs to a clean large bowl.
Pour balsamic mixture over wings and toss to coat well. Let stand 5 minutes, then toss again.
