  1. Marinade: Combine above ingredients in a baking pan.
  2. Chicken: Remove and discard the wingtips from 18 whole chicken wings. Place the chicken wings in the pan, cover, and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours. In the meantime, prepare the sauce.
  3. Sauce: Combine ingredients and whisk until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Discard marinade. Pat wings dry with paper towel and season with salt, liberal amounts of freshly ground white pepper, and olive oil. Grill until the wings are golden brown and crispy, and their juices run clear. Place the chicken in a bowl, toss with the sauce, and serve the wings drizzled with the remaining sauce. If desired, serve with crusty bread for dipping in the sauce.

Serves 6 (3 wings each).
