Excellent wing recipe! These wings were full of flavor. The liquids turn into a syrup that coats the wings...has a nice tangy flavor with a touch of sweetness.

Excellent wing recipe! The sauce thickened up nicely with the cook time as written. These wings were full of flavor; I could really taste the orange! Thank you!

I made these as instructed except for adding a good sprinkle of ground pepper, using whole chicken wings. The sauce did not thicken well for me (maybe because I used non-stick pan) but the flavor was still amazing. I broiled the wings to crisp the skin and we really loved this.
