Spicy Ginger Scallion Chicken Wings

Spicy Ginger Scallion Wings 1What? Another chicken wing recipe? Yes. I know I have a chicken wing addiction. But what if I tell you the recipe is pretty simple and does not require that you have to deep fry and get burned by popping hot oil? Or am I the only one that seems to have that bad luck? If you are not so much into spicy food, then feel free to omit the peppers from this recipe. You will still have a delicious wing either way.

  • Kosher salt to season wings

  • 4-6 whole Serrano peppers
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice cooking wine
