Cooking is an art.. Cooking is a passion… Its fun… I can come up with so many reasons why cooking can even be a legitimate sport. But lets be real, what makes it what it is for the most part; feeding our masterpieces to the ones we love. That silent moment when mouths are too full to exclaim their appreciation.
The trick is to find dishes that we can prepare in 10 minutes flat and have the delicious flavors linger for much longer then that.
This dish, side dish, appetizer or main course would be one of my top candidates.
Things you’ll need:
- 20 chicken wings/ 40 drumets (I use drummettes)
- 2 Tbsp Sesame Tahini
- 3 Tbsp Ketchup
- 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp Balsamic/Rice Vinegar
- 1 Tsp Grated Ginger
- 1/5 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/3 Tsp Garlic Powder
- Black Pepper
- Salt to taste (Don’t forget Soy Sauce contains salt)
- Cookie Sheet (big enough to spread all the wings nicely)
- Parchment Paper
- A Healthy Amount of Imagination
Pre-heat oven to 375.
In a nice sized bowl stir in all the ingredients with a whisk following all your wings (make sure they don’t have too much excess water from rinsing them it will dilute the flavors). Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place all the wings flat onto the cookie sheet and pour any extra sauce left over on top of them. Pop them into the oven. TIP i like middle racks, everything has a chance to cook nicely without burning.
Now you can either set your table, take a shower, whip up a dessert or do whatever for the next 20 minutes or so.
Once they are golden flip them over for an additional 20 minutes. Make sure both sides get the same amount of love:)
Eat Up and Enjoy!
