I transferred the wings onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and poured the extra marinade overtop, rather than discarding it. I baked them for 40 minutes, turning half way, then poured the reserved marinade over and baked an additional 20 minutes. They are very gooey, and deliciously rich. Next time I'll add extra pepper flakes to kick up a bit more heat.
