Ingredients
  • 2 lbs fresh chicken wingettes or drumettes
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
Ginger Sesame Sauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place an oven safe cooling rack over a baking sheet covered with tin foil. Either spray or rub a little bit of oil on top of the rack (olive oil is fine). Place fresh wing pieces on top of the cooling rack and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip wings and bake another 20 minutes. 

  2. Meanwhile make the sauce by placing all the ingredients except the sesame seeds and green onion in a small pan. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. 

  3. Once the wings are cooked, remove them from the rack and toss them with the sauce, toasted sesame seeds, and green onion. Serve immediately!

Recipe Notes
  • If you prefer your wings a little more brown and crispy, broil on high for another 2-3 minutes on each side before tossing in the sauce.
