~Thai Honey-Chile Drummies~
4 lb chicken drummies or “drumette” wings
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup white wine
1 teaspoon crushed, red chile pepper
1/2 cup honey
2 Tablespoons soy or teriyaki sauce
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Toss fresh or thawed chicken pieces with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange on a large baking sheet. Bake at 450 for about 45 minutes (until cooked through and crispy.)
While the chicken is baking, combine wine, crushed red pepper, in a sauce pan. Simmer 1 minute. Whisk in honey and soy sauce.
When chicken is done, transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour honey-soy mixture over and toss to coat the chicken pieces evenly. Transfer to a pretty serving platter. Sprinkle with scallions and serve.
