These Asian Wings with Orange gives a special sweet and savory twist on chicken wings by adding soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey and orange marmalade.
I’m a real fan of unfried food. You know what I mean, food that’s baked but really has the crispiness of fried food with just a whole lot less calories. I’ve been doing my Crispy Baked Wings for…it seems like… Ever. Why? Because they’re healthier than fried, plus they are So Easy and mostly because they are incredibly delicious. So I based my Asian Wings with Orange Sauce on this recipe and then tweaked it to bring out the flavors of the East.
