Easy Baked Chicken Wings in Sweet & Sour Sauce is an ideal recipe for any busy night. I get it, I get it…I literally say this about all my recipes. Yet it’s true, my goal in life is to provide easy and quick recipes you can whip up in a breeze. So here goes another.

I didn’t typically think of wings as a dinner item when I initially started cooking. When most people think of wings, they think of appetizers. Well that’s the win win of the situation, wings can be both. Whether you’re hosting a party or just feeding your hungry family, these can be whipped up in a second…or like 30 minutes 🙂

Now I’d like to take a moment and discuss this sauce…oh this sauce. Anyone else love that sauce from the Chinese restaurants that comes when you order Sweet & Sour chicken? Well…this isn’t it. I always tried to replicate it in my kitchen by combining ketchup, white sugar, and vinegar…Fail, complete fail, lol. It never came out like the restaurants. I did however change up the ingredients and came up with the sauce below. It’s great on the wings and it is daughter and hubby approved. Here are the recipe deets.

First, Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking pan by covering with foil and spraying with cooking spray until fully covered, set aside.

Next, combine 1/2 cup ketchup, 1 TBSP white vinegar, 1 TBSP brown sugar, 1 TBSP soy sauce, 1 clove minced garlic and 1 tsp grated ginger in a medium bowl. Stir and set aside.
