Hope you had a fun and delicious Thanksgiving! Stuffed yet? I'm in Houston spending time with my sister and brother whom I haven't seen in about 3 months. That's a really long time for us. I will have a recap of our time together soon. For right now, I want to share a simple recipe you can whip up in no time. The key ingredient is Korean chili flakes.
- 2 Ibs chicken wings tips removed, drumettes and flats separated
- 1 Tbs canola oil
- ⅓ cup low-sodium soy sauce
- ½ cup honey
- 1 Tbs Korean chili flakes
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- Preheat oven to 400F. Place a wire rack inside a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
- Rinse chicken and pat dry. Transfer to a bowl and toss with canola oil. Spread out chicken in a single layer on baking rack. Bake until cooked through and skin is crispy, 40-45 minutes.
- In the meanwhile, whisk together soy sauce, honey, chili flakes, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and simmer until slightly thickened, approximately 10-15 minutes.
- In a mixing bowl, toss chicken with sauce until well coated. Place under broiler until glaze is glossy and lightly caramelized, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and enjoy!
Spicy, sweet, and finger-licking good!! Now I gotta warn ya - if you've never had these Korean chili flakes before, they've been known to induce a little sweating. However, paired with honey, they cause nothing more than a little tingle of deliciousness in the mouth. And as easy as this recipe came together, I wish I had known about Season with Spice's Spicy Korean Chili Seasoning - a blend of Korean chili flakes, toasted sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, Sichuan pepper, and red chili flakes...everything in this recipe and then some!
The Hungryman and I have been so fortunate to meet some amazing people as a result of our little blog, and for that, we're truly thankful :). One of those special interactions was with Reese and Mark from the boutique spice shop, Season with Spice. When they introduced us to the incredible array of spices on their site, we just knew we had to share. Oh...and how about a giveaway?
Without further ado, let's give a warm welcome to Reese and Mark!
The incongruous match of a dietitian to be and a hungryman intrigued us when we first stumbled upon their blog a few months ago. And when we delved further into MJ and Tim’s adventures, we learned that a heart condition doesn’t limit love, it strengthens it.
The role that cooking & health play in their lives together always has us returning to follow their story. Because like many of you, we relate closely to where their journey began, and the adventures they continue to share from their home in Austin.
When we first contacted MJ & Tim to introduce ourselves and Season with Spice – our boutique spice shop specializing in Asian spices and handcrafted blends – we already knew from their blog that they also felt a strong connection between healthy eating and spices. But when they replied, clearly stating “less salt, more spice”, we knew immediately we found two new friends.
So on this Small Business Saturday weekend, we are teaming up with The Adventures of MJ and Hungryman to give away some premium spices and blends to encourage healthy eating, more flavor, and to remind everyone to help support your small, local businesses during the holiday season. Because as MJ & Tim shared with us, “Living in Austin, we recognize how much small businesses add to the vibrancy and culture of a city.”
