Spiced Honey Chicken Wings

  • SERVES: 10-12 as an appetizer
  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 10 minutes

Amazing wings, and not a buffalo in sight.

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...

Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet
Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet

Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. It can cook almost anything and will last a lifetime. Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required

The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set
The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set

Grab the slotted spoon to stir and al dente-test pasta, the spatula for slicing and serving quiche and crumbles, and the spoon for everything else. Carved from olive wood that ages beautifully, these utensils also level up a tablescape—use them for serving salad, spicy slaw, and spaghetti. Olive wood has a natural oil finish, for stain resistance, a little shine and a lot of use. Use the flat, spatula-style utensil to divvy and serve quiche, brownies, berry crumbles and other treats best served warm.
