Ingredients

  • 16 chicken wings
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted, plus more for garnish
  • 1 whole green onion, thinly sliced, for garnish - optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Wash wings in cold water and pat thoroughly dry with paper towels.
  • Lay wings onto parchment paper, leaving at least an inch of space between each. Sprinkle over half the salt.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Flip wings over. Sprinkle over remaining salt, and bake for 20 more minutes.
  • In the meantime, add the following ingredients to a skillet - honey, garlic, ginger, and water.   
  • Over medium-high heat, whisk the ingredients together and allow them to come to a low boil until sauce has thickened.
  • By this time, the wings will be ready. Remove from oven and add to the skillet with the sauce. At this point, add the toasted sesame seeds.
  • Toss together, cooking over medium-high heat until the wings have absorbed all of the sauce and the wings start to char.
  • Remove wings from skillet and onto a serving plate. Garnish with more sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
