sweet and sour glazed chicken wings... 50 minutes

the goods:

3 pounds chicken drumettes
4 cups pomegranate juice
1/4 cup light-brown sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange chicken wings in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Bake until deep golden brown, crisp, and cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through.
Meanwhile in a medium saucepan, combine pomegranate juice, brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over high and cook until mixture is reduced by three-quarters (it should coat the back of a spoon), 35 to 40 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cayenne pepper.
Transfer wings to a large bowl, add pomegranate glaze, and toss until coated.
