We like to use oranges and orange juice in lots of different ways—we even have an orange tree in our backyard. These chicken wings are a fun appetizer that our friends are very fond of. —June Jones, Hudson, Florida

"These have been a family favorite for years. I do a few things differently now that I've made them for a while but it's great as is. Pecans should be finely minced and the flour should not be too heavily applied. More pecans than flour rather. Add a little orange zest and juice to your sauce for extra flavor. Yummy!"
