Michael's Famous Chicken Wings

There are a few dishes that my husband makes that I just adore and this is by far my favourite. He originally got the recipe from his brother, who is a Chef by trade, and has since tweaked it to make it his own.  He now makes the best chicken wings I have ever had.  I can honestly say that I dream about them.  I crave them. I love them!  Anyone that has ever had these chicken wings can attest to just how scrumptious they are.  


2 lbs. chicken wings, split
1/2 cup soy sauce 
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2" fresh ginger, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped plus 2 tablespoons for garnish


In a large bowl combine soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and 1/3 cup of cilantro.  Mix until combined.  Remove 1 cup of the mixture and set aside. 

Add chicken wings to the bowl.  Toss the chicken wings in the marinade, making sure they are covered evenly.  Cover the bowl and allow to marinate for a minimum of 2 hours, over night is ideal.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Heat bbq to medium heat.  Grill chicken wings for 15 minutes, flipping twice.  The oil causes the wings to smoke quite a bit, so don't be alarmed, just make sure to flip often enough that they do not burn. 

Place the chicken wings on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

Place the 1 cup of the marinade that you set aside in a small sauce pan.  Heat on low while you are preparing the wings.  This will be a dipping sauce for the side.

Once chicken wings are cooked, remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro.

Serve with a small bowl of dipping sauce.
