Be careful when trying to miss a pothole, it could easily cause you to lose control and end up in an accident. Should you hit a pothole or two, make sure to have your alignment checked to prevent premature wear on tires, inspect steering and suspension components for damage.

16 Pieces Chicken Wings
3/4 cup Potato Starch
1/4 cup Clover Honey
1/4 cup Butter
4 Tablespoons Fresh Garlic minced

1/8 cup Fresh Water (or more as needed)

3. When Timer sounds, cook at 400 degrees for 5-10 minutes. All skin on all wings should be very dry and crisp.
4. Heat a small stainless steel saucepan on low heat. Melt butter and then add garlic. Sauté the garlic for 5 minutes.
5. Add honey and salt and simmer on low for about 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes, just so the sauce does not burn. Add a few drops of water after 15 minutes to keep Sauce from hardening.
