Ingredients

  • 4 pounds chicken wings

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • ¼ cup unseasoned rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ½ cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 scallions (thinly sliced)

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler and set a rack in the center of the oven. In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the wings on a wire rack set over a large, sturdy baking sheet. Broil for 45 to 50 minutes, turning once or twice, until the wings are cooked through and crisp.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the vinegar and crushed red pepper and simmer for 1 minute. Let cool, then whisk in the honey and soy sauce.

  3. In a large bowl, carefully toss the chicken wings with the honey-soy mixture. Transfer the wings to a platter, sprinkle with the scallions and serve.
