Stuffed Monster Heads
Melted Torsos and Legs

This recipe does take a little bit of imagination. But the kids love it. You have to preface the serving of this dish with a terrible story about a group of kids that fell into a batch of acid goo that shrunk their legs and torsos. If anyone asks where their heads or arms are (and trust me, they will) tell them the acid was so strong it melted them. They'll eat it right up. They'll like the chicken too. This is a great sauce to use on any chicken dish. It is *really* messy though, which is part of the appeal. Just be prepared and have a lot of napkins around.

5 pounds frozen chicken wings
3/4 cup apricot preserves
6 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet or jelly roll pan with at least 3/4 inch high sides. Spread the chicken wings out on the sheet (or sheets if needed) so that they are lying in a single layer. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes. While the chicken is baking, mix together the sauce. In a small pan melt the apricot preserves. Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Mix together until smooth. Liberally brush a quarter of the sauce over the chicken wings, flip them over and brush with another quarter of the sauce. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, brushboth sides with the remaining sauce, and return to the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken wings are thoroughly cooked. Let cool before serving to prevent burned fingers.
