These sweet and spicy chicken wings are so delicious (just look at those beauties!) that you should probably double or triple the batch… Actually, let’s say definitely triple the recipe…
Tamarind Glazed Chicken Wings
Yield: 1 to 2 servings
1 teaspoon tamarind paste
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 large garlic clove, peeled and minced
Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until sauce reduces to about 3 tablespoons.
1 pound organic chicken wings, patted dry
½ teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper, for seasoning
½ tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon raw white sesame seeds
Place an oven rack on the middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a sheet tray with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on the sheet tray.
Place chicken wings in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the baking powder and toss to combine. (The baking powder will help keep the chicken skin dry and crispy!)
Place chicken wings, skin side up, on the wire rack and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, flip the wings, brush on half of the glaze, flip the wings back over, brush on the remaining glaze, then sprinkle evenly with sesame seeds.
Return to oven and cook another 5 to 7 minutes, until a beautiful deep brown color is achieved and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
