Ginger-Scallion Wings

The lighter side of a bar snack classic.

Wings are typically cut into two parts: drum­ettes (they're sort of cute mini drumsticks) and wing­ettes (they look like, yes, wings).

Total Time:
Level: Moderate
Serves: 4


  • 2 tbsp. safflower oil, plus more for baking sheet
  • 2 lb. chicken wingettes (tips removed) and drumettes
  • 1 ¼ tsp. coarse salt
  • 6 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. chopped ginger
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes


  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet, then arrange wings on sheet in a single layer. Season with ¼ tsp salt. Roast until golden brown and crisp, about 35 min.
  2. While chicken roasts, pulse scallions, ginger, remaining 1 tsp salt, the red pepper flakes, and remaining 2 Tbsp oil in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Remove wings from oven and toss with sauce in a large bowl. Return to pan and roast until sauce sets, about 15 min.
