Asian Chicken Wings

Have I mentioned before that I'm head over heels for chicken wings? No? Well....I am, but sometimes plain old hot wings gets a little dull. Lucky for me there are all sorts of flavors you can put on a chicken wing.

Wet Measuring Cup
Measuring Spoons
Baking Sheet
Lrg. Metal Bowl

Preheat the oven to 425F


2 1/2C Orange Juice (you can have that 1/2C be pineapple juice if you like, my roommate is allergic so that's the only reason I didn't use it)
1C Sugar
1/2C Soy Sauce
2T Orange zest
2T Minced, fresh garlic
2T Minced, fresh ginger
1T Sesame Oil
3/4t Crushed red pepper flakes
2T Chopped Green Onions


3-5lbs Chicken Wings
Salt and Pepper
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder.

Toss the chicken wings desired coating of the above seasonings, lay out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake wings with just their seasoning for 35 minutes. When wings are cooked, remove from oven and lower heat to 350.

In the meantime...Bring all ingredients for the sauce to a boil (except the green onions), stirring occasionally until thickened 8-10 minutes. Toss wings with half of the sauce and return to baking sheet and oven for another 25 minutes.

Remove from oven, drizzle with remaining sauce and green onions...server immediately and enjoy!
