Ingredients

Wings: 
Sauce:

Directions

For the wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel; don't skip this step! This will both help the rub adhere and ensure crispy skin. 

To a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, add the coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cracked black peppercorns and cardamom seeds. Grind it to a fine powder. 

Pour the ground spice mixture into a small bowl and add the mustard and salt. Whisk to combine. Reserve a scant 2 tablespoons of this mixture for the sauce. 

Place the wings in a large bowl and add remaining spice mixture; toss to coat the wings well. Let those puppies sit for about an hour. 

About 15 minutes before you're ready to bake, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a wire rack and grease with cooking spray (or brush with canola oil).

Place the wings on the prepared rack at an even distance from each other. Pop into the oven for about 45 minutes, flipping the wings over halfway through, and rotating the baking sheet for even cooking. 

As the wings are roasting away, make the sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the grapeseed oil until shimmering. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Then add the reserved 2 tablespoons spice blend and cook another 30 seconds. Stir in the pomegranate molasses, Sriracha and mint leaves. Cook for about 5 minutes, and then finish with the butter and lemon juice. Stir, taste for seasoning and set aside off the heat. 

When the wings are done, pull the garlic cloves and mint out of the glaze and discard (thin the sauce with a few teaspoon of water if needed). Toss the wings with the sauce. Avoid the temptation to eat them all yourself! Serve.

Cook's Note

*Cook's Note: Pomegranate molasses is available at some supermarkets and at Middle Eastern markets.
