Oven Fried Chicken with a Brown Sugar & Peanut Butter Glaze

Hello World……..

I have not blogged in days…….and I have missed it.  I have been busy moving and because of the move the family and I have been eating out.  Today I had enough.  I desperately needed a home cooked meal.  So I got the kitchen in order and started prepping dinner.  Tonight I was in an experimental mood and wanted to try something different.

So I made my household famous “Oven Fried Wings” and added a Brown Sugar and Peanut Butter Glaze/Sauce.  It gives the chicken a bit of an Asian Flare.  It was absolutely delicious.  This is one experiment that paid off!!
