Ginger & Honey Chicken Wings


  • One 4 ounce piece of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 1/4 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons crushed salted roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Finely grate the ginger into a fine sieve set over a bowl. Press the juice from the ginger; you should have 1/3 cup. Discard the solids. Whisk in the honey and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. 
  2. Light a grill and oil the grate. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the 2 tablespoons of oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning, until lightly browned on both sides, about 7 minutes. Continue to grill, turning and brushing with the ginger-honey mixture occasionally, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 8 minutes longer. Transfer to another large bowl and toss with the peanuts and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
