baked asian chicken wingsI’d like to have some BBQ chicken and I know I can’t full fill this urge right now. It’s cold outside and I mean really cold, but  the craving for BBQ chicken is so strong I can smell it :)

Baked Asian Chicken Wings

Serves 2. Calories per serving 285

8 whole wings skinless

 1 tablespoon honey

 3 tablespoons soy sauce

 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil

 4 garlic cloves chopped

 1 teaspoon corn starch

 2 tablespoons water

 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

 1 inch ginger chopped

– Mix all ingredients except the chicken wings in a bowl and leave aside for 5 minutes.

– Preheat oven to 374F/190C.

– Remove skin from all the drumettes. Wash and dry.

– Place the wings in a nonstick baking pan. You can use parchment or aluminum foil if not using a nonstick baking pan.

– Bake for 20 minutes. You’ll notice the wings have released some fat and water, drain it. Now turn the wings and bake for another 20 minutes.

– Remove the wings from the oven. Don’t turn off the oven.

– Mix the wings with the marinade and return the wings in the baking pan.

– Bake for 4 minutes, then mix the wings using a spoon, return to oven and bake for another 4 minutes.

Note: Do not over bake the chicken wings, or the garlic will burn and will taste bitter.
