Sesame Ginger Chicken Wings (Updated)

Sesame Ginger Chicken Wings

This is my updated version of my Sesame Ginger Chicken Wings. It is a little more work and it requires more advance preparation, but I think it is even better than the original.

  1. Cut the ginger into ½″ thick pieces across the grain.
  2. Put the cut ginger, garlic, and oil into a blender (or Magic Bullet) and process until smooth.
  3. Strain the oil mixture into a plastic bag.
  4. Wash and dry the chicken wings and add them to the bag.
  5. Seal the bag and shake to evenly coat the chicken.
  6. Put the bag into the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours to allow the oil mixture to soak into the chicken. Turn the bag ever half hour to assure all of the chicken wings are in good contact with the oil.
  7. Arrange the chicken on a baking tray and sprinkle both sides with sesame seeds and coarse salt.
  8. Bake in a 400° oven until done (about 45 to 50 minutes).
  9. Serve hot.
