Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken wings, separated at joint, tips discarded
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425º Trim wings of excess fat using a sharp knife. Place into a bowl and toss with salt and pepper. Put wings on a sheet pan in a single layer and bake 45 minutes until brown and crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan and add ginger and garlic. Saute until fragrant then add all other sauce ingredients except scallions and sesame seeds.
