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.

I baked the wings instead of frying them and they came out perfect. Will definitely be making this again. My husband loved them and so did my 17 month old picky eater.
