Ingredients

For the Wings

  • 4 pounds of chicken wings, cut into wingettes and drumettes
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

For the Sauce

  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • Sesame seeds and sliced scallions for garnishing (optional)

Instructions

For The Sauce

  • In a small pot over medium heat add all the sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil and lower the heat. Simmer for about 12-15 minutes or until syrupy.

For the Wings

  • Set one oven rack at the lower-middle part of the oven and one other rack at the top-middle part.
  • Pat dry your chicken wings with paper towels OR if you have time place your chicken wings uncovered in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay a cooling rack or baking rack on top. Spray the rack with cooking spray.
  • Place the wings in a big mixing bowl or a reseal-able plastic bag and add baking powder
  • Shake off any excess baking powder and place the wings on the prepared baking sheet skin side up. The wings will shrink a little so don't be afraid to fit them snugly.
  • Bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit on the lower-middle oven rack for 30 minutes.
  • Move the wings to the upper-middle rack and increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes turning the wings once during the cooking time.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and let the wings rest for 5 minutes.
  • Toss the wings with the sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced scallions (optional)

Notes

Make sure you use baking powder and NOT baking soda for this recipe. You can add 3/4 teaspoon of salt + 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper + 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder to the baking powder if you want to serve the wings with a different sauce.
