Happy Independence Day weekend! Hope everyone had a great 4th and is continuing to enjoy this lovely weekend! Last night I made Asian Wings and Veggie Stir Fry for dinner. “Happy Birthday, America!” I know, not exactly what you were expecting on the 4th of July, but we made it work!We are having a cookout tonight with some friends, so it is all good! Plus, we had lots of fun with fireworks now that they are “legal” in Georgia.
Asian Wings and Veggie Stir with Noodles
2 tablespoons peanut oil, plus more for the pan
2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
I added 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Sauces- I made a teriyaki sauce, a peanut satay sauce, and left some plain… I warmed both sauces up in the microwave for 20 seconds before adding to the wings.
Peanut Satay- I took 2 tablespoons of jarred peanut satay sauce and mixed a tablespoon of sesame oil, and a couple tablespoons of heavy cream (this thinned it out and took out a bit of the sting. Spicy!)
Teriyaki Sauce- I mixed about 2 tablespoon each of Hoisin and stir-fry sauce and a tablespoon each of soy sauce, and sesame oil. I was all out of Teriyaki sauce, so I improvised.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil. Dry the chicken wings with paper towels and place in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour the mixture over the wings and toss well to coat. Spread the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the wings until browned and crisp, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, make the sauces as directed above.
Carefully remove the wings from the baking sheet and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warm sauce over the wings and gently toss to coat.
Veggie Stir-fry Noodles
Chop a variety of veggies…
Cook the veggies in about 2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil for about 10-15 minutes. I bought a pouch of stir-fry teriyaki sauce and added in the veggies with a tablespoon of hoisin and sesame oil. Then I added some pre-cooked chinese noodles and mixed well in the sauce and veggies. This only took about 3 more minutes.
