Honey Ginger Hot Wings

by Cindy Rippe

I got the inspiration for this recipe while on a trip to the Island of St. Kitts. We met a man who owned a little shack on the beach and he served these wings and told me how to make them. I think the secret is the fresh grated ginger! This is a wonderful way to make chicken wings for the big game coming up! Super easy and AMAZING flavor!  

Honey Ginger Hot Wings


2 Tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder

2 lbs. chicken wings

2 1/2 Tablespoons red hot sauce (I like Frank's Red Hot)

2 tablespoons butter (melted)

1/2 tablespoon soy sauce 

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger

2 tablespoons sliced green onions or scallions

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with vegetable oil. In a small bowl mix flour, salt, pepper and five-spice powder. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Spread the chicken on the baking sheet in a single layer and spray with vegetable oil. Roast the chicken for 40-45 minutes, turning at least once, until brown and crispy.

In a bowl whisk together hot sauce, butter, soy sauce, honey and grated ginger. Add chicken to the sauce and toss. Sprinkle with green onions, and they are ready!!!!
