Here is the second installment of my wing extravaganza, this time I’m coming with a strange sauce! Root Beer Wings!
Root Beer Chicken Wing Glaze
- 2 Cups Root Beer
- 2 Cloves finely minced Garlic
- 1 Tsp grated Ginger
- ½ Cup Brown Sugar (optional)
- 1-2 Tbsp Corn Starch (with 2 tbsp water)
- 15-20 Chicken Wings
- 1 Cup Flour
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 400ºF. Combine 1 cup of flour, and salt and pepper to taste. Spray the chicken wings with non-stick cooking spray (which will help the flour stick to the wings) and toss the wings in the flour until they are evenly coated. Place them on a baking sheet covered with tinfoil. Once your oven has preheated, place the chicken wings on the middle rack and cook for 30 minutes then rotate the wings and cook for another 20-25 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, start your sauce by adding everything but the corn starch into a pot on medium-high heat, allowing the sauce to just reach a boil and bring down to a simmer until the root beer reduces by about half. Once your root beer has reduced, whisk the corn starch into a 2 tablespoons of warm water until dissolved. Add corn starch and water mixture bit-by-bit until the sauce reaches your desired consistency. Combine sauce and cooked wings in a large bowl and mix until coated.
