Passion for Elena's Cooking Corner: Sweet BBQ Sauce Oven Baked Chicken Wings + Summer Sangria

Happy Saturday my dear readers! As promised I am bringing more recipes to the table. In today’s cooking we have Sweet BBQ Sauce Oven Baked Chicken Wings and Summer Sangria. Easy to make and totally yummy!

Chicken Wings recipe

For the sauce:
2 table spoons of honey, you can add more if you want them to be very sweet
1/3 cup ketchup
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon paprika
1 garlic clove finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste  
1 kilo of chicken wings

Preheat the oven at about 250 degrees C
In a medium bowl mix all the ingredients, I usually add a little bit of water just to make the mixture lighter. Pour it over the chicken wings and mix so that the mixture is evenly spread. Arrange the chicken wings on aluminum foil baking sheet, sprinkle the remaining sauce evenly. Cook in the oven for 1 hour or until crisp. I usually turn the chicken wings after 30 min of cooking so that they are cooked evenly from both sides. You may serve it with additional barbecue sauce.

Summer Sangria

1 ripe peach large or 2 small
10-15 cherries (preferably white)
Mint leaves
White wine

Cut up the peach into small pieces. Cut the cherries into halves and remove the seeds. Place all the ingredients into a jug, add the wine and a few fresh mint leaves. Place in the fridge to cool for at least one hour before serving. Add ice before serving. Great summer drink! Enjoy until next time. xoxo ES
