Chicken wing cravings are a VERY REAL THING and this recipe is living proof. I may not be pregnant, but, HOT DAMN, I sure do know how to satisfy a food craving. Actually, I may be an expert in that category… in, ya know, the no-self-control arena. While I’m on the topic, I might as well list a few things I’ve attempted, but, ultimately failed at…
1. sugar detoxes #1-6.
2. whole30s #1-9.
3. the gluten-free diet. (I’ve eaten mostly GF/Paleo since Sept. 2011, but, still “treat myself” to gluten-filled goodies every few weeks. Glutenous foods are like drugs and clearly I JUST CAN’T KICK THE HABIT.)
4. v0lleyball. (Hey, Dad, remember when I called you crying to come pick me up from volleyball camp? Yep. You raised a real winner, there.)
5. life. (lul.)
All jokes aside, these wings are actually insanely delicious and insanely easy. I bought a pack of organic chicken wings from our favorite local farm and had intended to feed them raw to our 10lb. yorkiepoo, Zeus. Raw chicken wings are his favorite! But, for some reason, this time I just couldn’t bring myself to waste such delicious meat on the pup. (LOL @ “for some reason” – I just wanted the chicken wings for myself!)
I had two choices – Tessemae’s buffalo hot wings or sweet & savory glazed Asian-style wings… Since I am Asian, you can probably guess which one I picked. Plus, anything sweet & savory will always win in my book.
Every now and then you just need some chicken waaaangs, ya feel me?! All it took to make this sweet, savory, sticky glazed goodness was 5 ingredients and less than 5 minutes (aside from baking the wings, of course). So, next time you’re craving sticky wings, you know where to go. This recipe would be great for parties & gatherings, big or small, and is so simply delicious, both kids and adults alike will love it. You’ve already got the ingredients, so, what are you waiting for?! Hang out wit’cher wangs out!!!
- 1 lb. chicken wing parts
- 3-4 fresh garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp tapioca flour OR arrowroot powder
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp coconut aminos (I prefer to use San-J GF soy sauce - I'm okay with fermented soy in moderation)
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- scallions & sesame seeds for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Thoroughly pat-dry chicken wing parts with towel/paper towel.
- Toss wings in a bowl with tapioca/arrowroot, salt, and pepper. Shake off excess.
- Line a baking sheet with a lightly greased wire rack and evenly lay floured chicken wings on top.
- Bake for 45 minutes total, flipping wings halfway through.
- During the last 5 minutes, prepare the honey-soy glaze by mixing aminos/soy sauce, honey, and garlic in a small saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until thickened.
- Place still-hot wings in a large bowl and drizzle sauce over top, tossing until coated. Serve immediately, garnished with scallions & sesame seeds.
