Sweet and Sour Glazed Chicken Wings

  • servings: 10
Photography: Romulo Yanes


  • 4 pounds chicken wings, cut in half at joint (wing tips removed)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt plus more for seasoning
  • Ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in middle and upper thirds. Arrange chicken wings in a single layer on two rimmed baking sheets; season with salt and pepper. Bake until deep golden brown, crisp, and cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes, flipping chicken and rotating sheets halfway through.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine pomegranate juice, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over high and cook until mixture is reduced by three-quarters (it should coat the back of a spoon), 35 to 40 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cayenne pepper (optional).

  3. Step 3

    Transfer wings to a large bowl, add pomegranate glaze, and toss until coated. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    I think this recipe is missing some information-pomegranite juice isn't listed in ingredients.
