3 lbs chicken wings (use the plumpest chicken wings you can find)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup soy sauce (low sodium preferably)
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
Arrange wings in shallow baking pan. Heat butter, soy sauce, sugar, water mustard, and garlic powder if using, until butter and sugar melt. Cool; pour over wings and marinate at least 2 hours, turning once or twice. Bake in the same pan at 375F for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours, turning occasionally. (Use the plumpest chicken wings you can find; if your market only has the normal scrawny ones, don’t cook longer than 75 minutes) Drain on paper towels and serve.
