Garlic ginger chicken wings

Forget the messy barbecue sauce, or hot and spicy Buffalo marinade. My go-to glaze when broiling chicken wings (or thighs, breasts, drumsticks...) is inspired by the cuisines of the Far West. Garlic for a kick, fresh ginger for a sweet note with tang, combined with a mixture of a neutral oil (such as grapeseed), soy or tamari sauce, and maple syrup.

While I simply combined all the ingredients in a bowl, it leaves bits of garlic and ginger (which I prefer). For a smoother glaze, purée the liquids together with the garlic and ginger before adding the chicken wing.

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • One 2 1/2-inch section fresh ginger, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil or other neutral cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, preferably wheat-free
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 3/4 pound chicken wings, split

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, oil, soy sauce, and maple syrup. Stir together well. Add the chicken wings and marinade for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Place the wings, skin side down, in a glass baking pan and top with marinade. Bake the wings for 50 minutes to 1 hour, flipping halfway through, or until the meat just pulls away from the bone when pulled. 

Spoon remaining marinade in pan on top. Let them rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve.

Garlic Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Garlic Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
