Perfect Game Day Wings

peanut sesame chicken wings

Football season is upon us, which means that our family is again on the hunt for the perfect wing recipe. We've tried them fried, seasoned, sweet and sour. You name it; we gave it a try in our test kitchen (which means I'm cooking and the kids are eating).

But this recipe for peanut sesame chicken wings gave us something new -- a Thai-inspired flavor with a bit of a kick. They were a hit! Thank goodness, because our team lost last weekend. At least we had the wings. Here's how you make them.


Peanut Sesame Chicken Wings

Make your favorite pub food right in your own kitchen -- and no need to worry about cleanup when you use non-stick foil.

Prep: 30 minutes

Broil: 20 minutes


  • 12 chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, packed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted



  1. PREHEAT broiler. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil*. Set pan aside.
  2. Cut off and discard tips of chicken wings. Cut wings at joints to form 24 pieces. Put wing pieces into a large bowl; set aside.
  3. COMBINE the peanut butter, water, lime juice, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic in a food processor or a blender. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Remove 1/3 cup ofthe sauce; add it to the chicken wings and stir to coat evenly. Add the cilantro to the remaining sauce in the food processor or blender and process or blend until combined. Set aside. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in prepared pan.


  1. BROIL wings 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 10 minutes. Turn wings. Broil about 10 minutes more or until tender and brown. Drain off fat.
  2. PLACE wings on a platter to serve, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with the reserved peanut sauce.

*To line pan: turn pan upside down and press a sheet of foil around it. Remove foil, flip pan over, and drop foil inside. Crimp the edges and you're ready to cook!

Make sure that the non-stick (dull) side is facing down toward the pan when pressing foil around the pan. The non-stick side of the foil liner will be facing up toward the food when dropped inside the pan.


Finger licking wings without the mess! Line your baking pan with non-stick foil for these delicious chicken wings that lift right off the pan without sticking. When you’re done, just toss the foil for a quick and easy cleanup.
