These lip-smackingly delicious wings are smothered in a sweet-hot sauce, not for timid tongues. To cool them down, I recommend whirling together 1/3 cup mayo, 1/3 cup sour cream or yogurt and some finely chopped garlic and cilantro.
Note: This recipe makes about 16 addictively-good party wings, so if you are expecting a big crowd (or have friends with big appetites), you might consider doubling or tripling the recipe.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet.
Whisk together the olive oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, Sriracha and the 4 cloves of smashed garlic. Transfer to an airtight container with a fitted lid (a gallon-size zip-lock plastic bag will work in the absence of a container). Add the party wings and toss well to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or as long as overnight).
Spread marinated wings in an even layer over the prepared baking sheet, reserving remaining marinade. Bake wings for 15 minutes, then flip and cook for another 7-8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through but still tender.
While chicken bakes, transfer remaining marinade to a small pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat (to kill bacteria). Reduce to medium low and simmer for 4-5 minutes, or until the marinade becomes very thick and syrupy.
Just before serving, brush the chicken wings with a coat or two of the reduced marinade.
Makes about 16 wings (serves 2-4, depending on appetites).
