There are just days when you crave some yummy chicken wings. Of course, a ton of restaurants, or even grocery stores offer already made ones. The issue is that those ready-made ones are typically loaded with calories and fat. I also think that baking wings are definitely the way to go if you are trying to watch your calorie intake.
Let me share with you this tasty, less guilt recipe. Oh, did I mention super easy to make? 🙂
For the ingredients, you will need:
1 lb (2.2 kgs) of chicken wings (bone in)
3 tbsps light soy sauce
3 tbsps sriracha sauce
1 tbsp honey
½ tsp sesame oil
Sesame seeds for garnish, optional
In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sriracha, honey and sesame oil.
In a medium bowl, coat the chicken wings with the sriracha mixture. Make sure all wings have the same amount of sauce. Place coated wings in a tight seal container or a Ziploc bag. Marinate for at least 2 hours, overnight if you can wait so that the flavors are packed in each wing.
Once ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a shallow baking dish in foil and spray the foil with some baking spray, or brush with a little bit of canola or olive oil. The foil saves you the headache of having to clean the baking dish.
Place the marinated wings onto the baking dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. You wouldn’t want them to burn so start watching them at the28 minute mark. Once out of the oven, garnish wings with sesame seeds.
You may serve these with some sauce of your choice – ranch, buffalo. I didn’t need to use any since they were already flavorful. I just enjoyed each wing to the bone. I made some extra soy sauce mixture to brush on my wings when they were done. That might be something you’d like to do, too. Go on and give this a try! You’ll love it!
Note: If you do not have an oven, you may also deep fry your wings instead. If you are deep frying, the wings should be done in about 10 to 15 minutes at about 375 degrees F temperature. Just keep in mind that they may not be as moist, and of course, the calorie count will be higher.
