Zesty Wings


A great recipe that I found on ZestyCook.com. I made these for Super Bowl Sunday & they were a hit. I have done them since in a slightly healthier version, using chicken tenderloin. Cook time was the same using the tenderloin, but all ovens are different, so you might want to check them around 30-35 minutes to be sure. I also used a salt substitute, since we’re cutting back on sodium. The sauce was to die for. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Total cost was around $1.50 per serving.
Ingredients
  • Chicken Wings ( tips removed )
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Hoisin Sauce (couldn’t find any, so I just used a wing sauce I found that had no sugar in it)
  • 1/4 Cup Ketchup (Hunts – with NO high fructose corn syrup)
  • 3 Tbsp.  Brown Sugar (I used the Splenda/Brown Sugar which has 1/2 the sugar in it)
  • Splash of Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup Sweet Chili sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 Tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 Cup Water
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat chicken dry.  Season chicken wings with salt and pepper.  Place them in the oven and cook for 40-50 minutes.
  2. In a separate sauce pan, place on medium heat and add remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer.  One everything is combined thoroughly bring to a boil.
  3. Remove wings from the oven and place in a large bowl.
  4. Add the sauce over the wings and toss to coat.
  5. Serve with some fresh veggies and a big glass of ice water!
  6. ENJOY!
