Spicy Thai Chicken Wings

It's Easter today and since we were having the Glovers over and we had such a large breakfast - we decided to keep it simple and make up some yummy wings!!  These were heaven in your mouth!!  We made these with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing - and it was so, so, so good!!  We only had ours marinade for about 1 hour - so I would recommend longer - but that was the only thing I would change!
Makes 40 appetizers: Party Food

20 chicken wings or drummies (about 4 lbs)
1/4 cup dry sherry or chicken broth
1/4 cup oyster sauce (no oyster sauce - do 2 tablespoons soy sauce instead!)
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 tablespoons grated lime peel
4 medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Cut each chicken wing at joints to make 3 pieces (thigh, wing, tip - throw tip away....this is just full of lovely fat)

Mix remaining ingredients in plastic bag or large glass bowl.  Add chicken to marinade.  Seal bag; turn to coat.  Refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours, turning once.

Heat oven to 375.  Place chicken in ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake uncovered 30 minutes, stirring frequently.  Bake about 20 minutes longer or until juices of chicken are no longer pink.
