If you’ve never tried Chinese five-spice powder, now’s your chance! It’s warm, it’s cinnamony, and contains star anise, possibly nature’s prettiest spice, that looks like a star and tastes a bit like licorice. We added some hot Chinese mustard and a bit of fish sauce (because we basically have a faucet of the stuff at our place), and add honey for that lazy, glazey effect. Bonus: These are baked, not fried! Save your cooking oil for another occasion...
2 pounds chicken wings or drumettes, patted dry
2 teaspoon kosher salt
1½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons Chinese mustard (Dijon or prepared Colman’s mustard are fine, too!)
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 teaspoon white vinegar
½ teaspoon fish sauce
If it starts with King’s Hawaiian bread, it’s got to be good.
