Recipe: Mountain Cravings
  • 1/2 cup sesame ginger marinade
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 t. sambal oelek or chili garlic paste
  • 1 t. red pepper flakes
  • 1.5 lb. frozen chicken wings approx. 16
  • carrots, celery, and bleu cheese dressing (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Whisk together everything but the chicken wings. Taste & adjust – it will be very strong.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Use the smallest sheet you have that will fit the wings in a single layer.
  4. Arrange the wings bone-down on the sheet. Brush the tops with sauce.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, until the sauce has thickened. Turn wings over, brush the bottoms, and return to the oven.
  6. Repeat turning and brushing every fifteen minutes.
  7. The wings are done when the sauce has caramelized and thickly coats the meat, usually around an hour.

If your wings aren’t frozen, even better – this will reduce the cooking time, so lower the turn/brush frequency to 10 minutes.
