Salt and Pepper Wings

Oh my goodness. I’m a big time chicken wing fan. Any time, any where, I’ll eat wings. With darn near anything on them. But sesame oil infused with garlic, onion and jalapeno? I mean, it sounded good but not something I’d ever had on wings. And wow! Was I ever surprised as to just how great these salt and pepper wings were.

Oh you get the salt and lots of black pepper, but then you get this wonderful Asian-inspired flavor that is impossible to stop eating. The sauce is the perfect balance between sharp sesame oil, spicy pepper and garlic and onion. No one flavor overpowers the rest. It’s very, very good.

Next time I fry a chicken I’m coating it in the same sauce as I used for these salt and pepper wings. And next time I make these salt and pepper wings I might double the sauce because it’s seriously addictingly good.
