Thank you so much for all the get well wishes! You guys are the best. Seriously. You guys are so great that I’m even thinking about doing two giveaways in the coming weeks so stay tuned! Now I’m definitely feeling a bit better but I’m still not fully recovered. I did take a day off of work yesterday and “relaxed” at home – “relaxed” meaning tidying up the house and cooking a bit here and there. Jason couldn’t seem to understand why I just couldn’t “chill.” My response: “Well, the toilet was gross! I couldn’t leave it like that!” As you can tell, I’m a bit OCD.
Anyway, we should start talking about these wings or I’ll be writing a full on essay about my OCD. Now I made these because as I’ve said before, Jason is a wing fanatic so I’m always trying different wing recipes here and there. This one was particularly finger-licking sweet and spicy, but definitely not spicy enough for Jason. I think I’ll add more Sriracha the next time I make this. After all, you can never have too much Sriracha, right? So here’s how you make this – it’s incredibly simple! We’ll first start with the sauce mixture by combing the soy sauce, Mirin, honey, garlic, ginger, Sriracha and cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water.
3-4 pounds chicken wings
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 1/3 cups soy sauce
1/3 cup Mirin rice cooking wine
1/2 cup honey
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2-3 tablespoons Sriracha, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9×13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together soy sauce, Mirin, honey, garlic, ginger, Sriracha and cornstarch mixture.
Arrange wings in a single layer onto prepared baking dish. Pour the sauce evenly over the wings.
Place into oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until the wings are slightly charred.
