There are so many great things about this dish. The awesome glaze has a taste that will please any age, it's so versatile, it's super easy that you can do other things while the wings are cooking and it is inexpensive. Dish doesn't have to be expensive to taste great.
When you're single you don't think much about how much money you spend but when you have a family, you prioritize. I think unless you're sweating money through your pores, you know exactly what I mean. Although I'm still working on this whole theory as of right now, food is my addiction... not bags, not clothes, not shoes... food. I have to constantly argue and debate with myself why I shouldn't buy that ingredient... most of the time... the evil foodie prevails... "it is worth it! when you bite on it, you know it's worth it".
This dish.... entails no argument.
2 kilos chicken wings
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
