Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 20minutes
Marinating Time: 30minutes
Total Time: 1hour
2tbsprice wine vinegar
1/4cupof sesame seed oil
4poundsof trimmed chicken wings
3tbspchili garlic paste
juice of 2 oranges
sliced green onions for garnish
fresh cilantro leaves for garnish
sesame seeds for garnish
Preheat the grill to 400° to 450°.
In a large bowl whisk together hoisin sauce, vinegar, soy, fish sauce, and sesame oil until combined. Once mixed combine with chicken wings and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or over-night.
Once marinated remove the chicken from the marinade and cook on a hot grill until dark grills marks have formed and cooked through, about 10-12 minutes per side.
Once the wings are cooked, remove them from the grill and set aside. In a separate large bowl, whisk together chili sauce, honey and orange juice. Next, toss the cooked wings in this mixture until the wings are completely coated.
Serve the wings on a large platter and garnish with sliced green onions, cilantro leaves, and sesame seeds. Optional garnish: orange slices and rice crackers.
My general rule of thumb for all marinades is over night to infuse as much flavor as possible. If you have the time to do it, then do it!
When using soy, food items and caramelize quicker than normal which means it can have a tendency to burn. Lower temperature will give you dark grill marks without charring anything.
If the flavor of the sauce is to intense add in a little soy sauce and water to help break it up a little bit.
The wings should have dark grill marks when flipping over.
Another simple way to tell if the chicken wings are cooked is by simply slicing into the middle and ensuring all of the meat is white without any pink.
