Bake the chicken wings in a pyrex or disposable pan with high sides in a 350 degree oven for 1/2 hour. In a medium sized pot, add all the other ingredients and heat until the brown sugar is melted and the sauce is boiling.
Take the sauce off the heat. Add the sauce to the wings and put back in the oven for 1 hour. After the hour, turn the wings over every 20 minutes until the sauce has thicken and the wings are very tender. They take between 2 1/2 and 3 hours to cook total.
You can enjoy them at this point, or let cool and put in the fridge.
You can reheat them in the oven until warm or even in the microwave for 20 second intervals until heated through.
