Chicken wings are a sweet and tasty appetizer that become a main dish when served with baked beans, pecan salad, and an easy pudding that will remind you of Key Lime Pie. Baked beans from a can, whiskey and brown sugar, and pecans from the pantry will add a Southern touch to any meal. The wing recipe serves 10 as an appetizer, but will serve six as an entree.
