Simple-to-make appetizers are the key to easy entertaining. A five-ingredient marinade flavors these juicy and tender chicken wings.—Robin Spires, Tampa, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 30 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tips. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour 1/2 cup into a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Place wings in a greased foil-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally with remaining marinade. Yield: 2 dozen.
