  • 3 lbs. chicken wings
  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1-2 stalks green onion, diced
  1. Separate each wing into two pieces at the joint; remove tips (the pointy part of the wing with no meat) and discard. Rinse chicken wing pieces and pat dry.
  2. Mix soy sauce, cilantro, garlic, ginger and lime juice in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Add chicken wings, seal bag and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Remove wings from marinade and discard the bag. Add chicken to heated skillet, then drizzle with honey. Cook chicken for 5-8 minutes on each side, regularly spooning sauce over the chicken to keep it moist.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F. Sprinkle chicken with sesame seeds and place entire skillet, uncovered, in hot oven. Bake for 5 minutes, or until chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165°F.
  5. Remove chicken wings from oven and garnish with green onion. Store covered in the refrigerator and consume any leftovers within 2-3 days.
