- 3lbs chicken wings, sections, or thighs or drumsticks(skin on) shopping list
- 12oz fresh pomegranate juice(check in the produce section:) shopping list
- 12oz spicy tomato sauce(if you don't like things too spicy, just use a regular tomato sauce)--I get this in the Mexican section of larger supermarkets, or at the Mexican market! It's just a spicy tomato sauce, often in smaller cans, like a lil less than 8oz, like this! http://lunchinout.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/el-pato.jpg?w=200&h=200 shopping list
- several dashes of hot sauce or 1/2-1t cayenne shopping list

- 2T fresh grated on dry minced onion shopping list
- 3 cloves garlic shopping list
- juice from 1 lemon or 2 limes shopping list
- kosher or sea salt and fresh ground pepper shopping list
How to make it
- Combine all ingredients other than chicken in a medium bowl, and whisk to combine well.
- Pour over chicken in x-large zipper bag or bowl with cover. Toss to combine.
- Refrigerate about 1 hour or up to over night.
- Remove chicken from bag and place on cooling rack over a foil covered cookie sheet(or use a roasting pan).
- Bake at 350 for 30-40min(or more, depending on type of chicken used), or until internal temp is about 160.
- Meanwhile, add remaining marinade to a medium sauce pan and heat to boiling. Boil about 7 minutes, stirring often.
- Reduce heat to a medium simmer and simmer while chicken is baking, to create a thicker, basteable sauce.
- When chicken is at 160 degrees, remove from oven and brush on remaining sauce.
- Return to oven, increase temp to 400 and cook another 7 minutes or so, until sauce has heated and cooked to the chicken.
- *please note, this marinade/sauce will get VERY dark but it isn't burnt! It has a nice, sticky, consistency and it's full of flavor. Judge the doneness by the chicken, not the color of the marinade. IF the darkness turns you off, cover the chicken for the first half of baking, then remove in the last 15 minutes or so, and for the final bake time.

Ridiculously good... everyone should try em. the recipe as written is not too spicy, at least for me... should be good for most people. this is a keeper- be using this recipe from now on instead of bottled buffalo sauce. great job, again, Keni! T...moresteepens in Kearneysville loved it
