    Soy-Glazed Chicken Wings

    For this version of everyone's favorite messy finger food, we ditch the buffalo sauce and bring in Asian flavors. Here, a rich, thick caramel made of honey and soy sauce coats ginger- and mirin-marinated chicken wings. With their perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness, these chicken wings are dangerously addictive.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes, plus marinating time
        •    Cook time: 25 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4-6


        •    ½ cup honey
        •    1 cup rice flour
        •    2 tbsps sesame oil
        •    canola oil, for frying
        •    1 cup mirin, divided
        •    8 garlic cloves, minced
        •    lime wedges, for serving
        •    1 cup soy sauce, divided
        •    toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
        •    one 4-inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
        •    3 pounds chicken wings, separated at the joint, wings tips removed


    1. In a large bowl, toss together the chicken wings, ¼ cup of the mirin, ¼ cup of the soy sauce, the sesame oil, garlic and ginger. Cover and chill for 1 hour.

    2. In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining ¾ cup of mirin and ¾ cup of soy sauce with the honey, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until reduced by half, 20 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

    3. In a 6-quart pot or Dutch oven, heat 2 inches of canola oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 325°. Line a plate with paper towels and set aside. Right before frying, drain the wings and toss with the rice flour, shaking off any excess. Working in batches, fry the wings until golden brown and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the wings to the paper towel-lined plate to drain.

    4. In a large bowl, add the reserved sauce and the wings, and toss to coat. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serve with lime wedges.

    Easy Lamb Chops Recipe

    Tender, flavorful lamb chops don't get any easier than these lamb loin chops marinated in herbs, garlic, and lemon juice, then roasted in the oven, for an easy lamb chops recipe that cooks in about 15 minutes. Feel free to use fresh or dried herbs for this recipe. Add at least 1 hour and 20 minutes to the prep time to include time to marinate in the fridge and then come to room temperature.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •    1 tsp sea salt
        •    2 tbsps olive oil
        •    1/4 cup lemon juice
        •    1 tsp rosemary leaves
        •    4 inch lamb loin chops
        •    1 dash cayenne pepper
        •    2 tsps finely chopped garlic about 4 cloves


    1. Mix ingredients, except for lamb, in a bowl.
    2. Place the chops in a zip top bag and pour ingredients over chops. Seal the bag, after squeezing the air out, and squish the bag around to get the chops well covered on both sides.
    3. Let marinate in the fridge overnight. The longer the better, but give them at least one hour.
    4. Remove the chops and let them come to room temperature (approximately 20 minutes) before cooking.
    5. While the chops sit out, move an oven rack to the top position beneath the broiler, and preheat the oven on broil.
    6. Place the chops (with the marinade) in a single layer in an oven proof skillet, and place the skillet in the oven directly beneath the broiler.
    7. Broil for 5-8 minutes on each side, using tongs to flip the chops, until they are seared on the outside and register around 145 degrees with a meat thermometer.
    8. Drizzle with the pan juices before serving.
