Serves 8 to 10

Rich and tangy, these hoisin and lime juice basted chicken wings are ideal for backyard cookouts and watching the game, alike. Serve with crunchy sliced cucumbers on the side. (Cook's hint: Lining the baking sheet with foil makes clean-up a cinch.)

  • Canola spray oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/3 cup lime juice (with its pulp)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 pounds chicken wing drummettes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and generously spray with oil.

Using the side of a chef's knife, mash salt and garlic together to form a paste. Transfer to a large bowl, whisk in hoisin, lime juice and sugar, and then set aside about 1/3 cup of the mixture in a small bowl. Toss chicken with remaining mixture and transfer to a prepared baking sheet. Roast, flipping once, for 30 minutes.

Brush chicken with reserved sauce and continue to roast, basting and turning again every 5 or 10 minutes, until very tender and charred in some places, about 20 minutes more. (Alternatively, preheat a grill to medium heat and finish the wings on the grill, turning and basting every minute or so, until cooked through, about 10 minutes more.)

Transfer to a platter, top with sesame seeds and green onions, and serve.
