This recipe contains chicken wings, habanero chiles, soy sauce, fresh garlic, fresh ginger, brown sugar, onions, honey, salt, scallions, sesame seeds, black pepper
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 50 min
- 14 - 16 whole chicken wings
- 2 whole habaneros, deseeded (alter for spiciness)
- 1 cup(s) soy sauce
- 3 garlic
- 1 tsp. ginger
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar or (1/2 pear or apple)
- 1/2 whole small onion
- 2 tbsp. honey
- scallions, for garnish
- sesame seeds, for garnish
- black pepper
- 1. Apply the salt and pepper on the chicken wings for the pre rub. Let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes and preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- 2. Meanwhile, prepare the marinade/glaze by adding all ingredients (minus the honey) to a food processor. Pulse until smooth and completely mixed through.
- 3. Transfer to a saucepan and add the 2 tbsp honey. Bring to a boil until thickened, 5 minutes. Keep ready until basting.
- 4. Bake the wings for about 30 minutes while basting them frequently every 10 minutes or so.
- 5. After 30 minutes, set to broil and let cook for another 15~20 minutes while basting with remaining glaze. Broiling near the end creates crispier and crunchier wings that we personally enjoy.
- 6. When wings are charred and slightly burned, transfer to a serving plate.
- 7. Let cool for several minutes and garnish with thinly sliced scallion and/or toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!!
