Ingredients

Wings:

  • 12 chicken wings wingettes and drumettes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Secret Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoon barbecue sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoon corn starch
  • ¾ cup water

Instructions

Wings:

  • Preheat the oven too 400F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a rack on it, coat the rack with non-stick spray.*
  • Wash the wings, pat dry them so they are completely dry.
  • Season both sides with salt and pepper, place the wings on the rack.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Flip the wings and cook for another 15 minutes.**
  • Toss the wings in a bowl with the secret sauce.
  • Garnish with some green onions and sesame seeds.
  • Serve hot.

Secret sauce:

  • Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl.
  • Heat oil in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Saute garlic for one minute.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients + cornstarch and water to the saute garlic.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Taste and adjust to your preference. (more soy sauce for saltiness, more brown sugar for sweetness and more pomegranate molasses for sourness)

Notes

Baking the wings on a rack helps them cook evenly. If you don't have a rack, just bake them on the baking sheet that is lined with aluminum foil and coated with non-stick spray.
*Cooking time doesn't change for more wings.
