Asian Sesame Chicken Wings

Asian Sesame Chicken Wings

Just like the crunchy buffalo hot wings, these wings are breaded and fried but unlike the hot wings these wings are sticky and sweet.  These are my daughter’s “preferred” wings even though she pretends to like the Crunchy Buffalo Hot wings  because her big brother does.
