Servings 4 Servings
- 2 pounds chicken wings, tips removed and halved at the joints
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 thumb-size fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
- 6 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- sesame seeds
- green onions, chopped
Wash chicken wings and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a food processor or blender, combine garlic and ginger. Pulse a few times until smooth.
In a bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, orange juice, sesame oil, and the pureed ginger-garlic. Stir until combined.
Add chicken wings and marinate in the refrigerator for about 4 hours or overnight for best results.
Drain chicken from marinade, reserving liquid. In a small saucepot over medium heat, boil marinade for about 10 to 15 minutes or until reduced.
Arrange chicken in a single layer on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking pan.
Bake in a 400 F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Baste with the marinade and turn. Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or chicken lightly browns and a thermometer inserted in the center of chicken reads 165 F.
Remove from pan and transfer to serving platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve hot.
