Cranberry Glazed Wings

Photo courtesy of the Cooking Corner.

     A few weeks ago at my house we tried using cranberries in a variety of ways. I made a slaw with cranberries and a snack mix with sugared cranberries. Both were interesting experiments.
    About that time my son that likes to cook got the idea of cranberry glazed chicken wings. He's always been a wings fan. The glaze itself wasn't hard to make and added a nice taste to wings. This is one I'd try again.

Cranberry Glazed Wings
3 lb. chicken wings
1 cup cranberries
1/2 cup Hoisin sauce or orange oriental sauce
2 T. rice vinegar
2 T. honey
2 tsp. Siracha sauce
1 tsp. grated garlic
1 tsp. grated ginger
2 T. butter

Wings out of the oven.
Bake chicken wings in 425 oven for 45 minutes until browned.

In medium sauce pan, cook remaining ingredients over medium heat 7-8 minutes until berries pop, stirring often.

Simmer on low for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir to make sure berries are smashed and well combined.

Toss wings in sauce in a large bowl or add each wing into saucepan, turning to coat and shaking off excess.

Serves 8 - 10.

We couldn't find Hoisin sauce so substituted orange sauce.
