Okay guys, the first time I tried making these I kept thinking to myself that there was no way that these baked chicken wings were ever going live up to the classic fried preparation. But boy was I wrong! There is just something about the combination of the soy, honey and chili flakes that, when baked in the oven, creates a sticky and salty-sweet glaze that is just stick-to-your-ribs good. They are so good, in fact, that they'll blow your mind!
Preheat oven to 350 º F.
Season chicken wings with salt and pepper, and place in a rimmed baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes and set aside.
In a small bowl, make a slurry with the cornstarch and a tablespoon of water, and set aside.
Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Toss in the garlic, ginger and scallion whites, cooking for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Stir in the soy sauce, honey, lime juice, sesame oil and chili flakes. Whisk in the cornstarch slurry and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes until sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Pour sauce over wings and return to the oven for 20 minutes or until wings are cooked through and sauce is sticky.
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving. Garnish with reserved scallion greens.
