- 2 lbs chicken wings
- 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 lemon, juiced
- kosher salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- sesame seeds, for garnish
- Rinse chicken wings and pat dry. Remove tip and discard; separate each wing at the joint into 2 pieces.
- In a shallow dish combine the soy sauce, ginger, cilantro, garlic, and lemon juice. Add wings and toss well to coat; marinate, refrigerated, for 2 hours.
- Remove wings from marinade and pat dry; season with salt and pepper.
- In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter in the olive oil. When the butter stops foaming, add the honey and chicken wings and fry until browned on each side, about 5 minutes.
- Continue cooking the wings, turning them over often to coat them as the glaze reduces. Cook until the wings are sticky and cooked through.
- Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
The flavoring of these wings is awesome! I made them in my non-stick wok, and cleanup was a cinch. I used frozen wings, soaking in salt water, before the 2 hour dip in the marinade. It took about 15 minutes to cook them, but mine may have been especially big. Made for the Best of 2010 tag game. Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Papa D!
Tyler knows his stuff. These were delicious. I will try a different cooking method next time though. The flavour was great, but I didn't much care for the frying pan application. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
Oh! Oh! Oh! These are totally delicious! I didn't want to buy a huge bag of frozen wings, and instead bought fresh drummettes....couldn't find wings. These are wonderfully quick and easy, (without the marinating time). I found it worth the wait to enjoy them after working 9 hours today, starting the marinade when I came home. Absolutely delectable! Can't wait for football season to start again so I can serve these babies up. Made for PAC Spring 2010. I'll post pics later :)
