These baked and pan-tossed chicken wings have simple flavors, but are SO addictive. Slightly sweet and a huge amount of black pepper give them amazing flavors!

Ingredients

3 pounds wings
1/4 cup corn starch, for dusting
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 red chilis
3 large shallots
4 cloves garlic
2 inches fresh ginger, chopped
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
Scallions, garnish

Directions

  1. Dust wings in cornstarch. Lay out on a baking sheet lined with foil for easier cleanup. Bake wings at 375 degrees F. for 35-40 minutes until they are cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, prep other ingredients: Chop chilis, chop shallots, peel garlic (but leave whole), and chop ginger. Coarsely grind black pepper. Whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, and sugar.
  3. When wings are done, heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Melt butter and add shallot, chili, ginger, and garlic cloves. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then remove garlic cloves once they start to take on some color.
  4. Add soy sauce mixture to the skillet along with baked chicken wings and black pepper. Toss together vigorously to coat the wings in the sauce. It should thicken very quickly.
  5. Serve wings immediately garnished with fresh scallions.
