Sticky Wings

I tried out the Serious Eats recipe for baked wings on these after seeing a Kenji-Lopez Youtube that came up while we were having lunch the other day. I’ve tried the baking powder trick before and wanted to do it again because I didn’t really remember if it worked all that well.

So so good. These spent 40 minutes in a 425 convection oven. I turned them over halfway through. I let them air dry on the rack for 5 or 6 hours before baking.

Mrs J isn’t a fan of the butter/hot sauce Buffalo wing sauces so we’ve gone with variations of a soy sauce – honey – garlic sauce. This one has butter, soy sauce, minced garlic, honey, hot sauce, Thai sweet chili sauce, cane syrup, and ketchup. After they came out of the oven I reduced the sauce with the wings atop the stove until the sauce looked right. I would have added a touch of sesame oil but forgot. Grated ginger root would work in it but we were out. There were no leftovers.
