Sweet and Spicy Asian Hot Wings

adapted from Tyler Florence- Hot Wings

Ingredients

  • 2 dozen chicken wings about 3 1/4 pounds, rinsed and patted dry
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds toasted in a skillet over medium heat until lightly browned
  • Leaves from 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro chopped

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 fresh hot red chile, halved
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2- inch piece fresh ginger smashed with the side of a large knife

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Season the chicken wings with salt and pepper and drizzle a little olive oil on them to prevent sticking. Lay the wings in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until the skin gets crispy and the wings are cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the teriyaki sauce ingredients in a large saucepan. Simmer over low heat and reduce until slightly thickened. Pour the sauce into a large bowl. Dump the wings into the bowl and toss to coat them with the sauce. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve hot.

Recipe Notes

-I made these for a party, and purchased a large (10 lb) bag of frozen chicken wings at Costco. Tripled the sauce, perfect amount of sauce to wings.
