Description

Slightly sweet, a little spicy, a nice change for your wing enjoyment.

Ingredients

  • 2-½ pounds Chicken Drummets And Wings
  • 1 whole Orange, Zest And Juice
  • ⅓ cups Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Ginger, Grated
  • 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 whole Scallion, Chopped

Preparation

In a large soup pot that has a steamer, place water in the bottom until it hits the steamer basket. Add all the chicken pieces to the steamer and place over high heat and cover with a lid. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a gentle simmer to steam the wings. Steam for 15-18 minutes.

While the wings are steaming, add orange zest and juice, soy sauce, ginger, red pepper, honey, rice wine vinegar and Sriracha sauce into a large bowl and stir. Remove the wings from the steamer and place into the large bowl with the sauce and stir to coat.

Heat the oven to broil at around 425ºF and place the rack the second notch down. Now you want to crisp the skin and glaze the sauce over the top. Place the wings evenly on a baking sheet and place under the broiler. After 3-4 minutes, remove from the oven, flip over and brush more sauce over the top. Broil again and continue this process off flipping and brushing on sauce until the skin is crisp. Usually 2 times on each side does the trick.

I like to place all the wings back into the bowl of sauce and coat them before placing them on the serving tray, but this isn’t necessary. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and scallions to garnish.

I loved the flavor of these! I don’t have a steamer, so I just baked mine in the oven.

These were easy and really flavorful. I’m not usually a wing dipper but I made the dip anyhow and it was a perfect complement to the wings. Rather than steam and then just baste the wings in the oven, I made a little extra liquid and actually marinated the wings overnight for more impactful flavor. Big hit!
