"It says it makes about 24 dozen. However if you think about it that is 288 wings. Now I don't know about you, but I don't consider one wing a serving! So you might plan accordingly."

"The recipe says to bake 40-50 minutes , make sauce , put sauce on wings and bake another 45-55 minutes whic would be a total of 85-105 minutes baking time but the baking time at the top of the recipe is 45 minutes. Is the second baking time with the sauce wrong????"

"You could use low sodium soy sauce to decrease the sodium a little."

"Seems like that much soy sauce would make this a very high sodium recipe."
