Clementine Wings

I am not that into wings but this recipe was really good with the combination of Asian ingredients and the honey. This will certainly be on my list of party food when I am looking for a quick and easy recipe to whip up.

I liked this recipe so much I made another batch and brought it over to my neighbors. They really enjoy wings and the verdict? Batch number three coming up!

Good Eating and Bon Appetit!

Clementine Wings

1 1/2 lb chicken wings, cut apart at the joint

1 T rice flour

salt and pepper

2 T oil

2 cloves garlic, smashed/minced

2 T soy sauce

2 T hoisin sauce

4 T honey

1 T sesame oil

a good pinch of chili flakes

a squirt of chili sauce

juice of one clementine

Preheat the oven to 450. Dredge the chicken wings in the flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat the oil until it shimmers, and brown the wings on all sides. While the wings are browning, combine the remaining ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat 30 seconds to a minute and stir well. Dump the browned chicken wings in the bowl with the sauce, turn to coat, and spread them out in a glass dish. Bake 15 minutes, flip, then bake another 10-15, until the sauce is thick and sticky and the wings are cooked through. Serve over rice.
