Five-Spice Chicken Wings

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 Jo Bruns, Iliff, Colorado

    Wasn't too impressed. Did not have any wow factor for me. Won 't be making again.

    Glad to find a wing marinade that isn't too complicated. Did add more garlic. Definitely will make again. Also, added some lime juice to the marinade. Turned out great and yummy.

    My whole family loved these wings. I made extra sauce that I set aside for them to dip
