3 Lbs. chicken wings
2 Tbsp. canola oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. Momofuku chili crunch
1/2 Cup Hoisin Sauce
Green onions, chopped
Flakey sea salt (Maldon is my fav)
1. Preheat oven to 410°. Set a rack in a rimmed baking sheet.
2. In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the prepared rack and roast for about 45 minutes, until golden and crisp.
3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the Momofuku and hoisin and heat and stir until well combined and hot. Alternatively, put in the microwave and heat in 15 second intervals until really hot…stir in between sessions. Add the roasted chicken wings to a large bowl and pour on the sauce. Stir to coat the wings with the sauce.
4. Arrange the wings on a platter, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and chopped green onion. Finish with the flakey salt. Serve with lots of Handiwipes and enjoy.
NOTE: What is football or Super Bowl Sunday without wings? They are required at my parties and I try to come up with something new every year. This year, I played with one of my new favorite ingredients, Momofuku Chili Crunch. It is a crunchy chili oil packed with sesame seeds and chili flakes. I mixed this spicy condiment with sweet and thick hoisin sauce for the perfect sweet and spicy mix. The sprinkle of flakey salt is the perfect finish.
The Momofuku is pretty spicy so taste as you go. I’d start with a tablespoon and work your way up depending on how hot you like your wings. I’d even serve some of this on the side for those nuts that aren’t happy until they are bright red and sweating!!! LOL (You know who you are!) I’ve used this condiment in other recipes like my Healthier Orange Chicken so check that out too.
Be sure to check out the rest of my Super Bowl Menu. As always, if you try the recipe, be sure to send photos! I love seeing what you are doing out there.
