"These wings are sweet, spicy and sticky but if you're into the sweet ginger but don't like spicy, just leave out the serrano chilies. Make sure to test your chilies, 'cause there can be a lot of variation in heat!" — Melissa Killion

These were a big hit at my football playoff get together! Made them exactly as the recipe called out and they were amazing! Was told that these were the best wings ever
These were good. Didn't pan fry, put them in the flour and baked at 425 for 15-20 minutes, then dipped in sauce, reduced oven temp to 350 and cooked for 30 minutes, basted after 15.
Thank you for a tasty wing recipe! We really liked this. These are FULL of flavor! I did make some adjustments for our tastes. First I could only fit 1/2 the wings in my pan for searing, so I cut the butter (i did use butter instead of margarine) way down. I used 1/4 cup butter and cooked the chicken about 4 minutes on each side. I didn't need any more butter to cook the 2nd batch of chicken - there was enough fat in the pan. In the sauce I used 3 serrano's but I did seed them first. I also cut the ginger down to 1 tbsp. I LOVE ginger, but I thought 2 tbsp might be too strong for our tastes. I did have the other tbsp on hand just in case to add it if needed, but I didn't use it. I reduced the sauce down until thick. It took a little longer than 7 mins though. Maybe about 15 mins but it was worth it. I think next time I will cook it down even longer for a thicker sauce with a stronger flavor. Either way - we really LOVED these and will make them again. The star of this recipe is the sauce - it is soooo gooood! Reduce it down until it tastes the best to you. I left out the msg and the sesame seeds too
Superb taste! These are going straight to my recipe box!! Would be a great marinade for chicken or pork too.
I've seen guests go back and fill their plate with these. I always double the amount I think I need as they disappear so quickly...
These were a big hit with everyone. It will be a favorite recipe. I ate more than I should! Will have to fix less just to protect myself. LOL
This was very good. I didn't have fresh ginger so I used 1 1/2 tsp of powdered ground ginger and I used two jalepeno peppers instead of serrano peppers and I did not use the MSG or substitute anything for. The mixture stinks, but the finished product has a great taste. I plan to reuse this recipe many times more
