Ingredients

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup honey

Sesame seeds, for garnish

2 pounds chicken wings

1 cup low sodium soy sauce,

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 lemon, juiced

Directions

  1. Rinse chicken wings and pat dry. Remove tip and discard; separate each wing at the joint into 2 pieces. Place wings in a shallow dish and pour over the soy sauce, ginger, cilantro, garlic, and lemon juice. Toss well to coat; marinate, refrigerated, for 2 hours.
  2. Remove wings from marinade and pat dry; season with salt and pepper. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter in the olive oil. When the butter stops foaming, add the honey and chicken wings and fry until browned on each side, about 5 minutes. Continue cooking the wings, turning them over often to coat them as the glaze reduces. Cook until the wings are sticky and cooked through. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
