Baked Tangy Sweet Chicken

Just got back from the Traffic office for Snappy's (our car) registration renewal and we're exhausted.  My husband most specially specially that we are short of the required 6-8 hours of sleep.  He has to clear our clogged sink drain in the kitchen in the middle of the night.  You'd be horrified by the amount of fatty deposits that had solidified which he was able to remove.    Almost a foot long! Gosh!

I digress on the horrendous topic of fatty deposits.  I have here is my baked tangy sweet chicken.  By the title itself you can deduce the taste - tangy and sweet, oh, a little bit hot.  When I cooked this dish a few months back, I was actually planning of making buffalo chicken  but this recipe will not qualify as such since buffalo chicken wings are expected to be extra hot hot hot.  Since our friends who are coming over for dinner are not into hot and spicy food, I decided to create a sauce that is sweet and tangy with just a little hint of hotness.  So technically it is not really a buffalo chicken, and so the name of the dish.

Tomorrow, I am planning to cook buffalo chicken wings with the fiery hotness.  I was scouring the supermarkets for a Frank brand hot sauce but found none in the process.  I might just end up using Tabasco sauce plus chili flakes to get the fiery hotness I want.  Anyway, let see what will happen.  I'll keep you posted with the recipe for my buffalo chicken wing.  Meantime, you can try this chicken recipe for your Noche Buena.
