Cooking: Copycat Asian Zing Wings
Growing up I used to LIVE for Buffalo Wild Wings. I'd go anytime I could and would always take advantage of their Wing Wednesday specials. Once I managed to eat 25 wings in one sitting, for a 130 pound girl, that's kinda a lot. Heck, for anyone that's probably a lot...
In recent years I've learned not only how unhealthy the wings are but how poorly managed and maintained their kitchens are. In the food industry, they're considered to be among the worst in keeping a clean kitchen, ick!
So, like I've done with a few other things recently, I learned how to make my favorite BWW wings at home. These Asian Zing copycat wings are delicious. Granted, not the same as the real thing, but considering how much healthier they are, it's a compromise I am more than willing to make.
What You'll Need:
An air fryer (you can use an oven, but I'd recommend the air fryer)
16 - 20 oz. Wings
2 tbsp Sambal Oelek
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 1/2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Garlic (or 2 cloves, minced)
Sriracha to taste
Red Chili Pepper Flakes
Place the wings in your air fryer and set to air crisp at 390 degrees for 22 minutes.
While the wings cook, mix together all the other ingredients in a bowl as the sauce. You can add honey and Sriracha to thicken or soy sauce and water to thin.
Once the wings are cooked, let them cool in the air fryer for 4-6 minutes. Remove and place into a larger bowl.
Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat.
Add red chili pepper flakes for an extra fun look, if desired.
