spicy sweet chicken wings

every football party needs to have a special chicken wing recipe.  and this one seems to be better than most.  with just a few ingredients, the wing sauce brings the dish up to an amazing level.  from Martha’s recipe book, she doesn’t disappoint this time at all.

to prepare the sauce for the wings:
2/3 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons fresh orange zest or bottled orange peel if not available
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

combine the ingredients and whisk thoroughly.  reserve 1/2 cup of the marinade.

prepare the wings and divide into 3 segments if desired. allow the wings to marinate in the refrigerator in the sauce for at least 2 hours prior to baking.

when ready to bake, place the wings on a sheet pan covered with foil. the foil will allow for an easy clean up after baking. bake the wings in a 375 degree preheated oven, using the reserved sauce to baste while turning the wings.    total cooking time is 45 minutes.

serve on a platter of shredded lettuce.  this recipe will become one of your favorite wing recipes very quickly.  it is sweet with a hint of spice and could also be served with additional hot sauce for those who might like a very spicy wing.
