Ultimate Orange Glazed Chicken Wings

So the Big Game day is coming up (not so much for us Cowboy fans!) and perhaps you need some tasty treats for your Super Bowl fans. This one is a crowd pleaser!


  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium works great)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 4 pounds chicken wings


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the orange juice with the orange zest, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat.
  3. Reserve 1/4 cup of the orange mixture. Place wings in bag and toss to coat. Marinade in your refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Place wings on two large baking sheets, arranging the wings in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and baste them with the reserved orange mixture. Cook until just done, about 10 minutes longer.

New Look!

It's a new year, my blog needed a new look! And while I can edit HTML to my liking, I don't actually write pages of code like this. So I want to give credit to The Cutest Blog On The Block for this darling layout!

I don't have any new and fantastic recipes to share...yet! It's been a slow month for me, cooking wise, but I plan to get back on track here very soon. With Valentine's Day around the corner, I need to start planning a menu worthy for my sweetheart!
