Another wings recipe, the five-spice powder adds a nice tang, but be careful when using it, it can be overpowering. If you prefer you can grill or barbecue them but be careful they don't burn. Marinating time not included.
- 2 lbs chicken wings, cut them up by the joints if you prefer
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons black bean sauce
- 1⁄3 cup tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce, to taste
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 2 cloves crushed garlic
- 1⁄4 teaspoon five-spice powder, maybe more
- 3 teaspoons sesame oil
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, taste the marinade to see or you want to add a bit more five-spice powder, and hot sauce Add the chicken, mix well, cover and put in the fridge to marinate, at least 2 hours but I prefer 24 hours.
- When ready to bake remove the chicken from the fridge to get back to room temperature.
- Pre heat the oven 325F; line a baking tray with foil.
- Shake off the marinade, bake the wings for approx 1 hour until tender, baste them now and then with the marinade, and if desired finish them under the grill.
We really enjoyed this pleasant change from the typical Buffalo Wing recipe. Very flavorful, with mild heat. So easy to prepare, too. I followed the recipe exactly, finishing under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the skin. A great appetizer.
Very tasty and simple recipe! I marinated them overnight and then basted a few times while cooking. The last few minutes I stuck them under the broiler. Came out great! I did add a little extra hot sauce and will probably add a little more next time. Yum!
I made these with skinless drumsticks and we ate them over rice. The marinade is so yummy, I basted them many times with it whilst they cooked. My oven broke down whilst I was making them, so I put them under a low broiler for the last 30 minutes of cooking. They were just delicious!
