Thai Peanut Wings (TMP Photo/A. McKinney)
Even though the big game is over, that doesn’t mean we have to stop making fun party food.
With the Hollywood awards season upon us, this is another time when we tend to gather around the television with finger foods.
Because Buffalo wings are a hors d'oeuvre favorite, why not try out these sophisticated Thai peanut wings for the upcoming Grammy Awards or a move night?
This is a wonderful baked wing recipe that is unique and delicious. The ingredients for the sauce on these wings can all be found in the regular grocery store. The recipe can also be altered to suit your taste.
If you don’t want to buy the Sriracha chili sauce you could use your favorite hot sauce instead and include more or less, depending on how spicy you like your wings.
This is such a simple sauce to mix up, but your friends will really think you have made a gourmet dish when they taste these wings.
They are a little spicy and a little sweet and rounded out with that smooth peanut flavor. Did I mention they are lower in fat than your typical fried buffalo wings?
Well, that is just another reason to give these a try.
3 pounds chicken drumettes
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 Tablespoon chili sauce

3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup scallions
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. Toss chicken in canola oil and salt until it is coated.
3. Then set a cooling rack in a baking sheet, and place the wings on the rack and bake for 25 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, ginger, chili sauce, lime juice, honey, soy sauce, and 1/2 of the scallions.
5. When the wings come out, immediately toss in the large bowl with the sauce until thoroughly coated. Reserve any remaining sauce.
6. Place the wings back on the cooling rack and bake another 10 minutes at 425 degrees.
7. Remove from the oven and place in a serving dish. Top with the remaining sauce, scallions, and peanuts. Serve immediately.
