From the Test Kitchen

These oven-baked chicken wings get spectacular flavor from a simple homemade barbecue sauce. We’re taking inspiration from some of our favorite tangy varieties by combining molasses with apple cider vinegar and ketchup, for deliciously sweet and tart results. (Adding some of the sauce before finishing our wings in the oven and then slathering the rest on afterwards creates layers of flavor.) Roasted sweet potato wedges and a crisp slaw round out the meal.
