  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. red pepper sauce, preferably Tabasco
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. red pepper flakes
  • 4 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 2 lbs. chicken wings, split at joints into 2 pieces, wing tips removed


  • Combine the vinegar, pepper sauce, honey, soy sauce, thyme, cayenne, garlic powder, and salt in a large resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken wings and toss well to coat. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and brush it lightly with oil. Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade. Arrange the chicken on the baking sheet. Place the marinade in a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat and cook for about 6 minutes or until reduced by half. Brush the wings generously on all sides with the reduced marinade.
