Betty White’s Chicken Wings

The smell while these sticky wings bake in the oven in amazing.


  • 3 lbs chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)


  1. Arrange wings in shallow baking pan. Heat butter, soy sauce, sugar, water mustard and garlic powder if using, until butter and sugar melt.
  2. Cool: pour over wings and marinate at least 2 hours, turning once or twice.
  3. Bake in same pan at 375 for 1 1/4 hour to 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally.
  4. Tip – use the plumpest chicken wings you can find; if your market only has the normal scrawny ones, don’t cook longer than 75 minutes.
  5. Drain on paper towels and serve.
