Chinese Five Spice Rubbed Wings with Sweet Chili Ginger Sauce

Chicken waaaangggs. Yum! My fiancé Eric is originally from upstate New York where a major food group is chicken wings. These are fiancé approved which is quite an honor!

The Chinese five spice dry rub on these wings is made of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Szechuan peppercorns, and fennel seeds. What’s so delicious about this spice is it incorporates all five elements of taste: salty, sweet, our, bitter and umami. It’s full of such warm and cozy flavors too which is perfect for the fall season!

The dipping sauce (that’s gingery, garlicky, sweet, spicy and salty) makes these chicken wings absolutely killer. In fact, Eric was bowl-licking the leftover sauce! HA!
