Healthy Gameday: Baked Wings


Wings are the classic "you know they're terrible for you but you love eating them" food. I personally can't turn down wings, especially when watching a football game. Last winter, when my beloved Pats were in the AFC Championship against the Ravens, I made a recipe very similar to this one. This version is much simpler to make and was inspired when I saw this recipe on the "Just a Taste" blog. I didn't mess with the recipe too much, but added a dipping sauce and adjusted the timing of the wings as well.



Ingredients
Chicken wings, separated, tips discarded or reserved for a chicken stock for another recipe
1 tablespoon Chinese five spice seasoning
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup hoisin Sauce
2 tablespoons blackberry jam
3 green onions - chopped green and white parts
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon wasabi paste

To Cook:

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Toss the wings with the oil and five spice and place on a baking sheet or baking rack
  3. Bake for 40-45 minutes until wings are crisp
  4. Heat hoisin and blackberry jam in a small saucepan at medium low and mix
  5. Toss wings, hoisin/blackberry sauce, and green onion in a bowl
  6. In a small bowl, mix Greek yogurt and wasabi
  7. Serve wings with wasabi dipping sauce on the side or drizzled on top
