  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 Tablespoons apricot preserves
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Place water, apricot preserves, honey and sesame oil in a mall sot over medium heat. Stir to combine completely and allow to come just to a boil, stirring often.
  4. Whisk corn starch into lemon juice and whisk into preserves, stirring vigorously to avoid clumping. Allow to simmer 30 seconds and remove from heat.
