Nick Podesta and Jason Freiman put an Asian spin on chicken wings, the all-American bar snack, by coating them in a sweet-spicy-sticky glaze made with brown sugar, soy and chile sauces, chopped ginger and scallions.

  1. 12 chicken wings
  2. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 3/4 cup rice vinegar
  5. 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  6. 1/4 cup soy sauce
  7. 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet Asian chile sauce
  8. 1 1/2 teaspoons Sriracha chile sauce
  9. 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  10. 2 scallions, sliced
  11. 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  1. Preheat the broiler. In a bowl, toss the chicken wings with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the wings on a rack set over a baking sheet and broil 10 to 12 inches from the heat for about 45 minutes, turning once or twice, until golden, crisp and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the vinegar with the brown sugar, soy sauce, sweet chile sauce, Sriracha, ginger and half of the scallions and puree until very smooth. Transfer the sauce to a large saucepan and boil over high heat until thick and glossy, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken wings to the sauce and cook, tossing gently, until glazed, about 3 minutes. Transfer the wings to a platter and garnish with the remaining scallions and the sesame seeds.
