We still don’t have internet connection at home yet but it will be installed this Saturday. I managed to sneak out to the Starbuck right behind our house to make a quick update here.
This was the last batch of frozen chicken wings I had in my freezer before the move so I made it into this delicious finger food. I love the taste of five spices power as it added a nice aroma to the wings. Don’t be alarmed by the long list of seasonings as most of it can be found in your pantry. Make sure you let the wings marinate for at least 2 hours before baking for the flavor to blend into the wings.
2 pounds chicken wings
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp ginger juice
1 1/2 tbsp chili sauce – more if you like it spicy
1 tsp 5 spice powder
1 ½ tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp honey
1. Mix all ingredients except wings into a mixing bowl to make marinade.
2. Cut wings into three pieces through the joints. Discard wing tips; add remaining “drumettes” and “flats” to mixing bowl with marinade, making sure the marinade covers the wings.
3. Let wings marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hour. If you have the time you can let them marinate overnight.
4. To cook you can either grill or roast in the oven. To grill: Preheat grill to medium heat (350ºF) and grill for 40 minutes turning the wings once at the halfway point (20 minutes).
5. Oven method: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Arrange wings on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and place baking sheet on the center rack. Cook for 45 minutes, turning wings once at the halfway point. After 45 minutes turn to oven to broil function. Broil the wings until golden brown.
6. Serve warm or at room temperature with some celery.
Note: For the chili sauce I used Sriracha Sauce but you can replace it with any type of chili sauce of your choice.
