This sounds yummy. Since I'm only cooking for one, how would I adjust this recipe? I usually buy a package of about 6 wings.

I can tell the second the package is opened.
I guess I should throw it out if the smell is the slightest bit off' I washed the chicken, hoping that would solve the problem but it didn't :(

I use the apricot preserves and chipotle in adobo as a glaze...quite tasty, sweet and spicy! I was spending top dollar for this already pre-made from the butcher shop at our Whole Foods type store, I finally asked what the glaze was and they told me. Saves me a $1.50 a pound!

The odor of bad chicken also makes my nose tingle. Like something is irritating it. Yes, if you think it's bad, toss it. Your life is worth a lot more than a few pounds of poultry.

Hope you like it - kids sure do. Just make sure the wings are fresh - I've never had that problem. I usually buy 5 lb. bags from a local meat supplier that sells to retail markets - I guess I get them on the front end of the supply chain.

Smoked jalapeno (chipotles) in Adobo (a sauce of vinegar and garlic). Quite spicy. I only use 1 tablespoon, the rest I divide into 1 tablespoon servings in the freezer. Can usually get 4-6 servings out of one can. Herdez Chipotle Peppers 7 oz

Ummm - not sure how to adjust down - and I don't use chipotle sauce - maybe you will get some better answers. I usually do @ 3 lbs. of wings, so maybe 1/2 apricot, 1/2 soup mix?? Might be too much for 6 wings - you could reserve the reserves and close up the soup mix in a zip-loc bag for future use.

It's a challenge to cook for one because so many recipes are designed for a 4-6 people.
