Prep Time: 5 min ■ Cook Time: 30 min ■ Total Time: 35 min ■ Makes: 6 servings


  • 3 lbs chicken wings (approx. 36 wings)
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 4 teaspoons freshly ground coarse black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 scallions, diced
  • Red pepper chili flakes, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. LIne a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease lightly with cooking spray or oil.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together salt and pepper.
  4. Place chicken wings on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the salt and pepper mixture over the wings, making sure to cover evenly.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes then turn and bake for another 15-20 minutes until crispy and cooked through.
  6. Just before the wings are cooked, heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, scallions, and red pepper chili flakes, and cook until the garlic has browned slightly.
  7. Remove chicken wings from oven and place in a large bowl. Add the garlic oil mixture from the skillet and toss the chicken wings until completely coated.
