Balsamic Soy-glazed Chicken Wings
Roasting the wings before tossing them with this tangy glaze is our secret to getting crisp skin."The thing about this is that I expected that my kids would like the wingettes, but that I would have to "rinse" off the sauce after they decided they didn't like that. But no, they wanted more and more and more and more. Awesome - and seriously 5 stars for the big people too!" - cleverkt

Balsamic Soy-glazed Chicken Wings Preparation
Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Line 2 large shallow baking pans (17 by 11 inches) with foil. Put pans in oven and preheat oven to 500F.
Pat wings dry, then toss with oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and divide between preheated pans, spreading wings in 1 layer. Roast, without turning, until golden and tender, about 35 minutes.
While wings roast, simmer vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar in a 1- to 1 1/2-quart heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 1/3 cup, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted.
Remove roasted wings from oven and let stand in pans 1 minute (to make wings easier to remove from foil), then transfer with tongs to a clean large bowl.
Pour balsamic mixture over wings and toss to coat well. Let stand 5 minutes, then toss again.
To make wingettes from regular chicken wings, cut off and discard tips from chicken wings with kitchen shears or a large heavy knife, then halve wings at joint.
Makes 4 (main course) or 6 to 8 (snack) servings.
