Eating our way around Asia has inspired us to put a spin on an all American classic!
Here is our simple (yet crowd pleasing) General Tso Chicken Wing recipe!
You will need….
General Tso Chicken Wings
1-2 pounds Chicken Wings
1 cup General Tso Sauce
½ cup Soyaki
1 tsp. Brown sugar
¼ cup Picked cilantro
¼ cup slice scallions
What you do…
- In a heavy bottomed pot add the soyaki, General Tso and sugar and bring to a gentle simmer. You want to reduce it just a bit to concentrate the flavors.
- In a mixing bowl place the wings (if they are bloody give them a rinse and then pat them dry with a cloth), season them with a bit of salt, but not too much as the base is going to have quite a bit of salt in it already.
- Remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to cool, once it has cooled sufficiently toss the wings in about half of it.
- Place the dressed wings on a wire rack in a sheet tray and place into the oven at 425F ( if you have a poorly ventilated kitchen, maybe open a window or two as it may get a bit smokey) and bake for about 10 minute until the glaze concentrates and the wings start to get crispy, reduce the heat to 350F at this point.
- Once the wings are fully cooked (about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the wings and the strength of your oven), place them into a bowl, not the one you seasoned the raw chicken in, and toss with the remaining wing sauce, a squeeze or two of lime juice and the picked herbs.
- Plate and enjoy, yum yum yum.
