Chicken wings are a great party food. You can make batches and batches in advance, then keep them warm in a chafing dish, or re-heat in the oven. The pineapple gives these wings an exotic, sweet flavor.

4 lbs. chicken wings
1/4 C butter
1/2 C tomato ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 C fine dry bread crumbs
1 can - 14 oz., pineapple chunks
2 T brown sugar
2 T fresh ginger, grated
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Asian style hot sauce, my favorite brand is Tuong Ot Sriracha, find it in an Asian grocery or well stocked supermarket

Serves 6 as Appetizers

First Prepare the Wings
Prepare chicken wings by cutting off wing tips and separating the wing at the elbow joint (discard tips or save for making stock). Don't get intimidated at this process, it's very easy. Follow this link for step-by-step photo instructions of how to do it.

Melt butter in shallow baking pan in 400F oven.

Stir together ketchup and garlic and brush over wings, then roll them in the bread crumbs to coat evenly. Place in pan, turning to lightly coat with butter. Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Add water to the reserved juice to make 3/4 cup liquid. Stir in the brown sugar, ginger, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce.

After wings have cooked 20 minutes, turn them over, then pour on sauce the sauce. Bake for about about 20 minutes longer or until chicken is tender. Add the pineapple for last 5 minutes of cooking. Finished wings should be lightly browned.
