Five-Spice Chicken Wings Recipe

Five-Spice Chicken Wings Recipe

Bird is the word when it comes to these wings. They’re baked to a perfect golden brown and hum with mild, delicious Asian spices. Thanks to an overnight marinade, the chicken inside stays tender while the skin maintains that signature crunch. —Crystal Bruns, Iliff, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 25 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 pounds chicken wings
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
