Spicy Ginger Chicken Wings

Winner Winner Chicken Wing Dinner!!

These are really yummy!
The sauce is oh soooo good!

I did make some changes to the recipe as follows

  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 serrano chile peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F

Blot chicken wings dry with a paper towel
Beat the eggs in a bowl, and place the flour in another bowl. Dip chicken wings into the egg, then into the flour to lightly coat, shaking off the excess

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Pan fry the chicken wings until well browned on all sides, about 8-10 mins total (I had to do mine in 2 batches, and there was enough fat in the pan I did not need to add more butter for the 2nd batch

Meanwhile, gently boil the cider vinegar, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, salt, serrano chile peppers, and ginger in a saucepan over medium heat until thickened, about 15 minutes. Reduce it down until thickened and the sauce tastes amazing! adjust the seasonings for your tastes. You might like more ginger for sweetness or more peppers for spicy - it's up to you!

Toss the browned chicken wings in the sauce to coat, then transfer the wings to large baking dish with a slotted spoon. Reserve remaining sauce.

Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes, rotating and basting with the reserved sauce after 15 minutes

NOTE:  The sauce is the star of this recipe, and I feel I could have reduced it down even more for a more intense flavor!
