Sunshine Chicken Wings Recipe

Sunshine Chicken Wings Recipe

Many hands helped make our wedding day perfect. My aunts and cousins prepared the wonderful food. My husband, Jeff, and I and our guests enjoyed these finger-licking-good chicken wings. The zesty sauce was inspired by my uncle, Bill Gingerich.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:15-20 servings

  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
