773. Crispy Hot Chicken Wings

1

Soggy chicken wings just have to be the worst. On the other side of the spectrum is crispy chicken wings, which everyone loves. The crispiness of these wings is so ginormous, you’re going to have to swear that it’s not fried for people to believe you.So how does the chicken get that crispy without the frying? The secret is using baking powder in the spice rub. The baking powder coaxes the natural chicken fat from the wings as they bake then essentially fry the chicken wings in their own fat right there in the oven without a drop of added fat! The amazingly crispy wings then get tossed in a honey-hotsauce coating and are served immediately. The final sprinkle of sesame is for garnish purposes only.

Ingredients:

1.5kg chicken wings
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup hotsauce
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp vinegar
2 tsp sesame, for garnish

Method:

Preheat oven to 425F.
Cut the wings at the joints, discarding the tips (to the street cats perhaps?) and keeping the drumettes and the wingettes.
Combine the baking powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Scatter over the wings and toss to coat them evenly.
Arrange the wing parts evenly spaced (if crammed they won’t crisp properly) on a non-stick baking sheet (or use a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet) and put in the oven.
Bake for a total of 1 hour, turning over twice at the 20-minute interval.
Meanwhile, combine the hotsauce, honey, sesame oil, and vinegar.
When the crispy wings are done, toss them in the sauce to coat, transfer to the serving dish, garnish with sesame seeds, and serve immediately.
