This recipe was made for Amy who always told me, and lives by the idea, that everything could be made better by either peanut butter or bacon. I agreed but thought I could take it further, that they could be put together for something truly magical. With this as inspiration I came up with this for her, she is currently studying in the UK and during a visit winter she left for a few days in Germany and during here absence I put it to the test. I love how it brings a depth of flavor together that is simply complete. The day I came up with it some friends invited me over for a dinner and I brought it as my contribution they were a huge hit, I hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

The truth is, I knew this wasn't going to be good, and it isn't. At three hours in the oven, even at a low heat, the chicken is wildly overcooked. And because it is cooked in its (very oily) marinade, it is flabby and swimming in grease. It lacks seasoning, and the bacon, unrendered, is not only unpleasant in texture, but adds a peculiar taste to what is otherwise a largely Asian flavor-palate. At the moment I have the wings in the oven, trying to crisp them up in an attempt to avoid throwing away three pounds of chicken, but frankly, I'm not hopeful. I opted for this recipe because I needed to cook my wings and I had all the other ingredients, but I should have known better. Sorry, but these are awful.
