I found the inspiration for the recipe in Meghan's blog, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. I modified it slightly but it was perfect because I too am addicted to balsamic vinegar. Instead of using on the grill (its about 20 degrees outside!), I baked the wings.
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 1/2 pounds chicken wingettes and drumettes
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a soft boil and simmer for about 10 minutes, until thick and coat the back of a spoon.
Lay wings on a cooling rack positioned over a baking sheet (mimicking a grill inside the oven). Season wings with Italian seasoning. Place wings in oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and glaze both sides of the wings and return to the oven. Glaze wings about every 10 minutes until they are cooked through (mine took about 45 minutes and I bumped the oven up to 375 for the last 10 minutes).
Yields 4 servings of wings.
