Let's get Cooking...

  1. First, marinate the chicken. Add all marinade ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine. Lightly salt chicken pieces and add to bowl. Marinate chicken at least 1 hour, up to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Shake off some of the excess marinade and place chicken wings on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a grill pan over high heat. Remove wings from baking sheet and finish cooking on the grill 10-15 minutes, until charred and cooked through, flipping from side to side. Remove to a plate.
  4. Toss peppers with vegetable oil salt and salt. Add to grill pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning a few times, until blistered and charred. Drizzle with dark sesame oil and serve with chicken wings. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
