Sweet & Spicy Asian Chicken Wings

Any kind of chicken wings are a favorite in our house, but these just might be my all time favorite. The chicken itself is nice and crispy and the glaze is the perfect finger-licking consistency. They have a nice balance of sweet and spicy, so even my 8 yr old could enjoy them. In fact, she asked me if I could make these everyday lol.

You can use fresh or frozen wings for this recipe. If I am making a large batch, it is usually less expensive to buy them frozen. It just takes longer to cook the chicken and I make sure to do some extra crisping up under the broiler. The glaze is super simple to make and is done on the stovetop. I use coconut sugar for the sweet element and I love how it balances with the coconut aminos. You could also use brown sugar, I would just use a little less because it is sweeter than coconut sugar.
