Sweet and Spicy Asian Chicken Wings

A perfect treat for game-day.

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.

Ingredients

oil for frying

2 dozen chicken wings

1/2 cup soy sauce

2 Tablespoons sriracha suace

1/4 cup honey

1 Tablespoon sesame oil

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

3 scallions, chopped (green and white parts)

Directions

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.
