Confession: I know absolutely nothing about football, and I am just fine with that. But I do love traditional Sunday football "fare," and so for the next few weeks I'll be providing my husband's favorite recipes that go along with good game watching.
If you don't have a proper deep fryer, of course you can bake the chicken wings before saucing them. You can also fill a large pot with oil and use that for frying.
oil for frying 2 dozenchicken wings 1/2 cupsoy sauce 2 Tablespoonssriracha suace 1/4 cuphoney 1 Tablespoonsesame oil 2garlic cloves, finely chopped 3scallions, chopped (green and white parts)
Rinse chicken wings in cold water, and pat dry thoroughly.
In a deep fryer or large pot, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry wings in oil for approximately 12-15 minutes, until just crispy.
Meanwhile, heat soy sauce, sriracha, honey, sesame oil and garlic in a saucepan on medium heat. Whisk until heated through and smooth. Bring to a boil and let reduce slightly, just 2-3 minutes. Pour sauce into a large mixing bowl.
When wings are done, add them to the large bowl and then toss to cover with sauce. Garnish with chopped scallions and serve.
