Sweet & Sticky Hot Wings

As good as hot wings are, its nice to have something a little different than the classic, yet common buffalo wing.  These wings are kind of the bomb!  Baked not fried, you not only get amazing flavor from this marinade, but you save a handful of calories as well.

This recipe was created for my friend, rapper Jay Foss.
