  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 2 to 4


  1. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 teaspoon ground Sichuan peppercorns
  4. 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
  5. 2 pounds chicken wingettes and drumettes (see Note)
  6. 2 1/2 tablespoons red hot sauce, preferably Frank's Red Hot
  7. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  8. 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  9. 2 tablespoons honey
  10. 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  11. 2 tablespoons scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 500°. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with vegetable oil. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt, Sichuan peppercorns and five-spice powder. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Spread the chicken on the baking sheet in a single layer and spray with vegetable oil. Roast the chicken for 45 minutes, turning once or twice, until browned and crispy.

Wingettes and drumettes are often sold separately.
