Introduction: Sweet and Sour Glazed Wings

Serves 8 to 10 people

Delicious, sticky, succulent and moist are these wings.  Perfect for your next gathering, or if you just want a wings dinner.

Step 1: Ingredients

3-4 lbs chicken wings, (wings and drummettes separated.  You can use only wings or only drummettes if you desire.)
Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons sake
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced ginger

2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions

Step 2:

Preheat oven to 375.  Place wings in a single layer in a roasting pan. Season with salt and pepper.  Roast in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until much fat is rendered and skin is crispy.

While wings are cooking, add soy sauce, honey, vinegar, sesame oil, sake, minced garlic and minced ginger in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.  Lower heat and allow mixture to reduce until it is a sticky syrup, about 45 minutes.  Set aside.

Step 3:

When wings are golden brown, remove from oven.  Raise oven temperature to 425.  Using a brush, spread the glaze over each wing and then return pan to the oven.  Allow to brown up and get caramelization, about 3 minutes.  Remove from oven and then spread remaining glaze all over the wings until they are coated.

Move wings to serving plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions.  Serve with lots of wet napkins.
