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...
pounds chicken wings or drumettes, patted dry
teaspoon kosher salt
teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
tablespoons Chinese mustard (Dijon or prepared Colman’s mustard are fine, too!)
tablespoon orange juice
teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
teaspoon white vinegar
teaspoon fish sauce

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.
