Such sensuous words. I think of honey, a summer day, a melting Popsicle dripping down my skin, chicken wings.
Okay, maybe chicken wings don't incite the same sensuality as the rest of the list above, but oh man, these ones are good. Jenny blogged about these at Dinner: A Love Story, and I'm just helping spread the word. They don't fall off the bone, they slink off. All conversation at the table stops, as mouths are too busy licking sauce off fingers and uttering sighs of contentment. The best part, they take almost no work to make. There are four ingredients:
about 2 lbs of chicken wings
1 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of pomegranate juice
1/2 cup of sugar
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lay your chicken out in a single layer in a large baking dish. In a small saucepan, pour the soy sauce, the juice, and add the sugar. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved, and then pour over your chicken. Bake for about 45 minutes on one side, turn over and then bake for another hour. Done!
I like to decrease the amount of soy sauce I use, and add a little more juice. I like the fruity tartness the juice provides. I just kind of eyeball it.
Also, don't worry too much about them getting charred. Trust me, charred is your friend. They will get very dark and very sticky, and all of this is a good thing.
