It's national chicken wings day (yes, such a thing exists) so celebrate with this delicious, easy-to-make recipe...
A good marinade can make your chicken wings absolutely impossible to put down. This sauce is spicy, sweet, and garlicky. It's the perfect combination to keep you reaching for more. The best part, though, is how caramelized and sticky they get in the oven.

5 To make the sauce, mix together the tomato ketchup, sugar, honey, soy sauce, vinegar and water.
