I’ve checked the book Mad Hungry by Lucinda Scala Quinn out from the library four times, just for this recipe! Although the wings take some time to bake, this recipe is simple and really delicious. I’ve started buying the enormous bag of wings at Costco just because I want to make this dish so often. It’s great for parties or for family dinner–we’ve served them at both!
Sesame Crusted Chicken Wings
20 chicken wings
3 large eggs, beaten
2 t. vegetable oil
1/2 c. sesame seeds
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 t. coarse salt
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 c. fresh bread crumbs
2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
Hot sauce, for serving [We are preferring Frank’s Hot Sauce these days–it’s great!]
1.Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the chicken wings in a large bowl. Add the eggs and toss to coat. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with baking parchment or coat the pan with oil.
2. In a small bowl, combine the sesame seeds, flour, salt, cayenne, bread crumbs, and garlic. Dip each wing into the sesame mixture to fully coat. Place the coated wings side by side on the prepared baking sheet.
3. Bake for 30 minutes and increase the temperature to 400 degrees. Cook until the wings are golden brown and sizzling, 20 to 30 more minutes. Immediately remove the wings from the baking sheet while hot. Serve with hot sauce.
