With the playoffs in full swing, there's always room for more party food. And what better way to celebrate the kickoff than with chicken wings?
Luckily, Mr. Kim Chee had a fruit-based hot sauce (he belonged to a hot sauce of the month club at one point) and it worked pretty well as a replacement.
Pop them into a 400F oven for 20 minutes.
Let your Asian-style wings cool for a few minutes and then serve 'em up! Don't be afraid to lick your fingers ... they're that good!
Recipe: Asian-Style Chicken Wings
3 heaping tbsp. garlic and ginger paste (or 3 garlic cloves and a 1" piece of ginger, finely minced)
2 tsp. sesame oil
6 tbsp. soy sauce
3 tbsp. brown sugar
3 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 small onion, grated
2 green onions, sliced
~2 lbs. chicken wings, trimmed
In a large bowl, mix garlic and ginger paste, sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, hot sauce, grated onion, and green onion.
Marinate chicken wings in the marinade for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400F. Lay wings out on a lightly greased cookie sheet; bake for 20 minutes.
Remove wings from the oven; spoon remaining marinade over the wings. Return wings to the oven for another 20 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly before serving!
