Asian Style Chicken Wings: Recipe

 Lately all I've been looking up online are healthy recipes that I can make my family because one 1) I want to get better at cooking just in general and 2) I want to take over the kitchen and get my family on a health kick! So, by only cooking a portion size for each person and nothing more and using healthy recipes we can get healthy as a family and enjoy delicious homemade food at the same time! Plus, being the youngest in the family it's nice to feel like you have responsibility.

So, last night I made Asian-Style Chicken Wings which I found on the Whole Foods Market website. But because I didn't have all the ingredients so I substituted some things and didn't quite follow the instructions exactly...but my goodness they still tasted amazing!

Canola spray oil
3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 onion, sliced
5 chicken wings/person
Preheat the oven to 400F. Make sure you thaw your chicken before hand (because I didn't haha) Mix together your salt, garlic, lemon juice, brown sugar, and hoisin sauce in a large bowl. Get trays ready and spray them with the canola spray oil. Toss your chicken in the sauce and place them on the tray, put slices of onion on top of the chicken wings then pour any extra sauce over it.
After 30 mins in the over flip them over once. Then leave them in there for another 30-45 min. I had a lot of left over onions so I decided to make a little extra sauce and sautee them too add on top of the chicken! It turned out to be a really great idea!
Put a cup of rice on your plate and add your chicken and sauteed onion and there you have it! Your delicious Asian-Style chicken wings! It's as easy as that! Do you like how I tried to plate it all fancy-like?
So there you have it! My first healthy recipe! 
If you know any other great recipes I'd love to know!
Hope you all have great days :)
