Janene Holig, head chef of soon-to-open food truck "Hot Indian", also joined KARE along with Kieran to share her 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey Honey Wings.

Ingredients:

  • 2 dozen whole chicken wings, tips left on
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup 2 Gingers whiskey
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lime zest (from 2 limes)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons New Mexico or ancho chile powder

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Arrange the wings in a single layer on 2 rimmed baking sheets and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 40 minutes, until crisp, golden and cooked through.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk the honey with the whiskey and bring to a simmer over moderately high heat. Off the heat, whisk in the mustard.
  3. In a bowl, mix the sugar with the zest, chile powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt.
  4. Transfer the wings to a large bowl. Pour the sauce on top and toss to coat. Transfer the wings to a platter, sprinkle with some of the spiced sugar and serve.

Enjoy!
