This is one of those recipies that I've used enough that I've forgotten where the original inspiration came from-and that I actually hardly ever measure everything for...It's great for a gathering of friends for almost any occasion-say watching a game, or even a good movie...It also makes a great appetizer(I would recommend dialing back the cayenne-so as not to over power what ever else you might be serving later)...For Gary and Robin :-)

How to Make Spicy Chinese Five Spice-Rubbed Chicken Wings with Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR THE WINGS
  2. Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment.
  3. Remove the tips from the chicken wings(save for making stock-if you wish-or discard)and cut the wings in half at the joint. Place the wings in a bowl.
  4. Sprinkle 5 spice powder, and cayenne over wings, add salt and pepper.(be generous with the pepper) Rub this mixture all over the wings until no powder remains
  5. Place the wings on parchment lined baking sheet with the most skin up. Bake for about 25 minutes-or until cooked through browned and crispy-meanwhile make the sauce
  6. NOTE: This spice mixture also makes a very good Chinese inspired rub for a whole roast chicken-just maintain the ratio of 2 parts five spice to 1 part cayenne
  7. FOR THE SAUCE
  8. Combine all sauce ingredients through the lemon juice-add salt and pepper to taste
  9. NOTE: I should mention that I like my wings very spicy-you might prefer a lessor amount-but the sauce goes a long way in taming the heat
  10. NOTE: This recipe can be easily doubled-just use two baking sheets, and rotate baking sheets half way through the baking time.
