Ingredients

  • 12 whole chicken wings, parts separated, tips removed and discarded
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes, plus more for garnish
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 stalks green onion, thinly sliced for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Place the wings on the baking sheet, spreading them out evenly and avoiding any overlapping.
  • Sprinkle the wings with the salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, place all ingredients into a sauce pan and whisk to combine. Bring to a slight boil. Once the sauce begins to simmer, it will thicken slightly. You can make the sauce as thick as you want by continuing to simmer. I simmered the sauce for 15-20 minutes so that I ended up with a thick and sticky sauce. Use your own personal taste to decide.
  • Remove the wings from the oven and place them into a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat.
  • Place the wings back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions and a sprinkling of dried chili flakes. Serve immediately.
