You only need 5 ingredients for Martha's amazing ginger-scallion wings.
Martha's chicken wings tip: Buy whole wings, with the tips intact. Besides making a better presentation, the tips give you something to hold onto while eating the wings, and they turn wonderfully crunchy in the oven (for the last bite).
- 1/4 cup safflower oil, plus more for baking sheets
- 3 pounds whole chicken wings (about 32), patted dry
- Coarse salt
- 8 large scallions, trimmed and sliced
- 1/4 cup finely chopped peeled fresh ginger (from a 4-inch piece)
- Toasted sesame seeds, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 450º F. Lightly oil 2 rimmed baking sheets, and divide wings between sheets in a single layer; season with salt. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, flipping chicken and rotating sheets halfway through, about 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a food processor, process scallions, ginger, 1 teaspoon salt, and oil until smooth. Transfer wings to a large bowl, add scallion paste, and toss to coat. Return wings to sheets, and bake just until set, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
