This is a terrific chicken wing recipe, but for Halloween, we're calling them bat wings! So, I'm gonna start by making my marinade. It's super easy to make. You, basically, are going to add soy sauce, and you're gonna add some diced garlic. Put that in there. And then, I've got some spices. I've got some ginger, five-spice powder, and a little bit of red pepper, and I'm gonna put that in there also, and I'm just gonna whisk this together to make this delicious and simple marinade. You know, most of this stuff you probably have in your cupboard already, in your spice cabinet. Super-duper easy! Now, in here, I've got about 20 chicken wings, and I've put them in a really big Ziploc bag. So, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna pour my marinade right in here. Make sure you get all that goodness. And then, I'm gonna just seal it up and kinda shake and shimmy it around to make sure that every wing gets really well coated. And then, what you wanna do once you got them really well coated is you wanna just put them in the refrigerator for a few hours. If you can, ideally put them in overnight `cause the longer they soak in, the more they're gonna suck up that flavor. Then, once they've been in the refrigerator for a few hours, you're just gonna take `em out and put them on a foil-lined pan. Before you do that, you wanna pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees, and what you're gonna do is you're gonna put your wings in there for 10 minutes, and you're gonna cook `em uncovered. So, when you're done with your 10 minutes in the oven at 450 degrees, you're gonna take whatever is left of your marinade. You're gonna brush it on the wings and put them back in for another 15 to 20 minutes, and you wanna really watch them and make sure that the meat is really well cooked. You don't want any pink meat, and keep cooking them if you feel like they still need to be more well done, and I've actually got some that have been cooking in the oven and are ready to go right here. I'm gonna make some swamp dip to dip them in, and this is so super easy! You're just gonna take sour cream, and you're gonna put it into a bowl with a little bit of stone-ground mustard. Very, very simple and it's delicious. So, you just add these two together, and you'll mix them in just to make a really good dipping sauce. Okay, so once you've got your sauce all done, you're gonna wanna pour this into a little serving dish and put your, you know, chicken wings on a nice little platter and everyone is gonna
