  • Serves 4
  • 2 pounds chicken wings and drummettes
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili oil
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Paprika
  • Chinese five spice powder

In This Recipe
  1. Season the chicken liberally with five spice powder, paprika and salt. Spread on a flat layer on a baking sheet and slide into a preheated oven at 375 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
  2. While chicken bakes, mix the remaining ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium high heat. Once it begins to bubble, reduce to a simmer and cook until it begins to thicken.
  3. Remove chicken from the oven and drop the pieces into the sauce. Coat in the sauce, cover and simmer another 5-10 minutes until sauce gets thick and dark and coats the chicken. Remove from the sauce pan and sprinkle with scallions.

    I just want to say I try this and they're amazingly GOOD! I did not have sriracha and instead of salt I use adobo :)

    I can tell you right now I will need a wet wipe with these cause they look to good to eat slowly.
