Crispy Baked Thai Chicken Wings w Peanut Sauce

Ingredients List

  • FOR THE CHICKEN:
  • 2 1/2 lbs chicken wings, drumettes and flats separated (tips removed)
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • FOR THE PEANUT SAUCE:
  • 2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or more, to taste)

 Directions

MAKE THE CHICKEN:
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Rinse the wings and drumettes, pat them dry and transfer them to a large bowl. Toss the wings with the vegetable oil, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Position the wings on a baking rack placed on top of a foil-lined baking sheet, spreading the wings into a single layer to ensure they aren’t touching.

Bake the wings, rotating the pan half-way through, until they’re fully cooked, 45 to 50 minutes. While the wings are baking, prepare the sauce.

MAKE THE SAUCE:
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients. Taste and season the sauce with salt, pepper and additional crushed red pepper flakes, if desired.

Remove the wings from the oven and transfer them to a large bowl. While the wings are still hot, add the prepared sauce to the bowl, tossing to thoroughly combine. Serve immediately.
