Ingredients

  • 3 1/2  Pounds  chicken wings
  • green onions, chopped
  • 2  Tablespoons  sweet chile sauce
  • 2  Tablespoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2  Tablespoons  fish sauce
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  Tablespoon  sugar
  • 1  Tablespoon  Chinese five-spice powder
  • medium limes, cut into wedges

Directions

Cut the chicken wings into 3 sections and discard wing tip sections. Combine the onions, chile sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, sugar, and five-spice powder in a large resealable plastic bag. Add the wings and seal the bag to toss to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

The next day, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Drain and discard the marinade. Place the wings in a greased 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until no longer pink, turning every 10 minutes. Squeeze lime over wings.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
