Honey-soy roasted chicken wings


Who can resist a big plate of chicken wings? No one! Well, except for vegetarians, maybe. I think the best way to prepare chicken wings is to deep fry them. The combination of crispy exterior and juicy meat that results from a stint in the deep fryer can't be beat. Grilling the wings is also a great method. I employed neither of those cooking methods for this recipe. I employed my trusty oven to roast them for an easier weeknight preparation.

Sorry for the short hiatus at tony's kitchen! I was away on vacation and had a wonderful time with the fam! However, the downside of vacation was the desolate culinary landscape of, what Bourdain likes to call, TGI-McFunsters-type restaurants. So I was itching to get back into the kitchen and make something simple, fresh and delicious. I wanted to cook up something really flavorful but I also didn't want it to be too complicated. I also wanted to grill! I decided to look toward the Asian kitchen for inspiration. I wanted to do a Korean-bbq-style marinated steak at first but I had a bunch of boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the freezer. So I decided to go with that and marinate in Korean-bbq flavors.
