Korean Spiced Chicken Wings

Serves 6-8


  • 1/2 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  • 4 pounds chicken wings, about 26
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • About 5 cups vegetable oil

Glaze preparation

Combine all glaze ingredients in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Briskly simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes, or until  thickened slightly.

Remove from heat and keep warm.

Chicken preparation

Put rice flour, salt, and pepper in a paper bag or large resealable plastic bag and shake to combine.

Working in 4 batches, shake chicken in rice mixture to coat completely. Transfer each batch, as coated, to a large sieve set over a bowl and shake wings several times (be gentle) to knock off excess flour. Arrange each batch, without layering, on plates. Clean and dry sieve.

Heat 1 1/2 inches of oil in a wide 4- to 5-quart pot over medium-high heat until it registers 350°F. Working in 4 batches, fry wings, stirring and turning occasionally, for 5 minutes (adjust burner to keep oil as close to 350°F as possible while frying, and return oil to 350°F before adding each new batch). With a slotted spoon, transfer each batch of fried wings to the cleaned sieve, set over a bowl. Let wings drain in sieve while the next batch fries, then transfer to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. When the last batch of wings is fried and transferred, clean and dry sieve.

Reheat oil to 375°F and beginning with first batch, fry wings again, stirring and turning occasionally, until cooked through and golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer fried wings to sieve set over a bowl and drain while next batch fries, then transfer to baking sheet lined with fresh paper towels.

Brush wings with glaze on both sides while hot, and transfer to a platter.

Game Day Nachos with Homemade Tortilla Chips

Serves 10-12

  • vegetable oil for frying tortillas
  • twelve 6-inch corn tortillas, each cut into 8 wedges
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • 1 package of taco seasoning mix
  • 2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed
  • 1 medium sweet onion, finely diced
  • 3 pounds shredded cheese (such as sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack)

Toppings (optional):

  • Pickled jalapeños
  • Pico de gallo
  • Guacamole
  • 2 cups sour cream, thinned with 1/3 cup water
  • Hot pepper sauce

Make chips:

In a kettle heat 3/4-inch oil to 375°F on a deep-fat thermometer and fry tortilla wedges, a dozen at a time, until crisp and most of bubbling subsides, about 1 minute, transferring chips with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle chips with salt to taste. Tortilla chips may be made 1 day ahead and kept in airtight containers.

Prepare the Beef:

Prepare beef according to directions of taco seasoning mix.

Assemble the Nachos:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 large rimmed baking sheets with nonstick spray. Dividing evenly between baking sheets, layer chips, prepared ground beef, beans, onion, and shredded cheese, mounding in the center. Working with 1 sheet at a time, bake until cheese is melted, 20-25 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.
