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

As much as I love the classic, tangy wings, I have to say these are right up there with them. These couldn't get much easier either. All I do is rub the wings all over with a hot Chinese five spice rub and bake them in a really hot oven.

Directions

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees F.

If you have whole chicken wings, cut off wingtips and cut the wings in half at the joint. Discard wingtips or freeze to make stock at a later time.

Place the wings in a large bowl. Sprinkle five-spice powder and cayenne on the wings, add a few pinches of salt and about 15 grinds of black pepper. Rub the mixture into all the wings until no more loose rub remains. Wash your hands.

Line the wing pieces up on a baking sheet so the side of the wing that has the most skin is facing up. Roast until cooked through, browned and crispy, about 25 minutes. Serve hot with Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce.
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup yogurt
1/2 lemon, juiced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine ingredients in mixing bowl. Whisk ingredients to incorporate them fully and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Yield: about 1 cup

    A few years ago I got a cook book with Food Network stars and this recipe was in there. OH MY GOODNESS OH MY GOODNESS they are sooooo DELICIOUS!!! The clinatro yogurt dipping sauce goes perfect with them! Made them exactly as the recipe...and I would not change a thing. The skin was crispy, with the perfect amount of spice and heat. This has become my family's favorite chicken wing recipe!!
