Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk brown sugar, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and barbeque sauce together in a large glass bowl until sugar is dissolved. Stir black food coloring in small amounts into the mixture until you get the desired dark color. Liberally pierce the wings with a fork; add to the sauce.

  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Pour the chicken and sauce into a large baking dish.

  • Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Season these to your own taste - such as more or less sugar low sodium soy sauce add garlic ginger honey - whatever your family & friends prefer but the key to getting them dark is the combo of soy (and/or teriyaki) along with the black food coloring. Have fun with it! Read More

While these were okay. I thought the whole theme of the idea grand. I had to add several upon several drops to get the really dark black look because in the marinating...they didn't look all the black to me dark with a greenish look to them. The sauce was very zippy. I think if my kids want these again I'd knock down the teriyaki and soy sauce just a bit. Other then that my kids thought there were just fine. Read More

I ended up needing several drops of color more than called for but otherwise followed the recipe. It tasted ok although a little unappetizing where the food coloring made the fatty parts of the skin look...well just very unappetizing. My daughter loved them but I think next time I'll try to remove the skins. Read More
