Marge Perry's Peruvian Chicken Wings

Yes, it can be this easy to make wings for Superbowl– wings that people will devour within minutes. All you do is cut ‘em up, throw them on a baking sheet, and when they are just about done, mix a few ingredients together and brush the mixture on the wings. Bake 5 more minutes and you’re done. Yup– that’s it.

These wings are salty, spicy, savory and sweet all at once– the perfect Superbowl snack whether your team is winning or losing. I hope, of course, your team wins…

Chicken Wings Math

Wondering how many wings to buy to serve your crowd? Here’s the math.

* There are about 12 whole wings per pound.

* Cut each wing at the joint where the drumette (the piece that looks like a baby drumstick) attaches to the “flat”. Now instead of 12 pieces per pound, you have 24.

* I usually assume each person will eat the equivalent of three wings– 6 individual pieces. Some of my friends eat far more and some fewer. (It may depend on where they stand with their New Year’s resolutions).

* The “tip”, that little skinny pointed piece with barely any meat, is attached to the “flat”: you can leave it on or off– it’s your choice. If you remove the tips, as I usually do, throw them in a bag in the freezer and use them to make chicken soup.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a shallow baking sheet pan with cooking spray.
