Asian-Style Chicken Wings

I promised more wings and more wings I shall deliver!

I was surprised at how much I liked these. No really, I liked them almost as much as the regular buffalo wings. Almost.

We ate these the day before I became stupid sick to my stomach, so thankfully that experience has not made me hate these. It almost made me hate the almonds that caused it (I was told I have a nut intolerance). And I say almost because I still love and crave and always want almond butter, but now I can’t sit down with the jar in my lap and a spoon attached to my hand. But that’s neither here nor there.

What’s important is that these wings are the bomb dot com (I said it), and they would be the perfect addition to a work picnic or party. Because everyone likes tiny little chicken wings that they eat with their hands. It’s primal. It’s fun. It makes you feel powerful and gets sauce all over your face.

Speaking of sauce, what other wing sauces are out there? BBQ? White BBQ? Dry-rubs? My god it’s like a whole world of chicken wings just opened up before my eyes.

Do you guys have a favorite wing sauce? Tweet, Facebook, Instagram the hell out of me with your wing sauces if you have them. Click up there on those little social media bubbles to get a hold of me! Or leave a comment below. Or both.
