Units Scale

For the Wings

  • 2 lbs wings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • Black and white sesame seeds, thinly sliced chives to garnish.

For the Glaze

  • 3 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free chili garlic sauce (add more to make spicier wings)
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. Preheat the oven to 450˚F. Prepare a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Pat chicken wings dry with a paper towel. In a large bowl, toss chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper. Lay in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake chicken wings for 30 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned.
  4. While chicken is baking, make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together water and corn starch. In a small pot, whisk together all other ingredients and bring to a boil.
  5. Whisk in corn starch slurry and bring back to a boil. Turn heat down to low and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently until liquid is slightly reduced and thickened. Turn heat off and remove to a warm place until chicken wings are cooked through.
  6. Drizzle cooked chicken wings liberally with sweet and spicy orange glaze. Place back in the oven and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes, until browned and crispy.
  7. Remove from oven and garnish with sesame seeds and chives.
