General Tso’s Chicken Wings


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/22 lbs chicken wings
    Coating for the wings
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
    General Tso’s Sauce for the wings
  • 3 tbsps brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tbsps Hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp of sriracha hot sauce (or another similar hot sauce)
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the ingredients for the wing coating. Combine with a whisk.
  3. Put the wings in the bowl and coat with the cornstarch mixture. It’s ok if they’re not completely covered with the coating – a little will do – just make sure each has some on it.
  4. Place a wire cooking rack on top of a cookie sheet. Use a little cooking spray to coat the wire rack.
  5. Place the chicken wings on top of the wire rack.
  6. Give the tops of the chicken wings a little spray with cooking oil – not much, just a little.
  7. Place the wings in the oven to cook for about 45 minutes. I like to turn on the broiler for the last couple minutes of cooking for the wings brown up a bit on top.
  8. While the wings are cooking in the oven, combine the ingredients for the sauce using a whisk. Make sure that you work the cornstarch in so there are no lumps.
  9. Heat the sauce in a medium sized sauce pot on high heat. Bring it to a boil while stirring constantly.
  10. Continue cooking the sauce until it’s volume is about half or less of what it was before. Once it’s at the proper thickness take it off the heat.
  11. Place the wings in a large bowl and coat with the sauce. Make sure that they’re all well coated and place them on a serving dish.
  12. Enjoy!!
