Sweet and Spicy Honey and Sesame Chicken
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 13 medium to small chicken wings
  • black pepper(as needed. you may use crushed uziza seeds)
  • white pepper(as needed)
  • paprika(as needed)
  • chili flakes/powder(as needed)
  • 1tbsp honey
  • 1tsp oil(if you have sesame oil, it would work too. if not, just fire on with any other type. I used sun flower oil)
  • sesame seed
  • salt to taste
  1. wash and pat chicken dry(it has to be very dry). Season with salt, let it sit for about 10minutes; then season with the other ingredients except the honey, chili powder and the oil.
  2. heat up a nonstick pan, brush the oil into the pan. Bring over medium heat. Once the pan and oil are hot, add the chicken wings into the pan and in a single layer without over crowding. Let the chicken fry beautifully while you flip them from time to time to prevent burning(keep an eye on the heat). Once the chicken has cooked and browned beautifully, remove them from the heat and set to drain in a paper towel(alternatively, you can use an oven or a grill). Wipe the grease off the pan if you desire. In a bowl, toss the chicken, the honey, sesame seeds, and pepper flakes then re introduce it into the pan and heat. Keep tossing over the heat until chicken looks/feels sticky; then serve with any side.
