Asian BBQ Chicken

There's a place around the corner from my apartment that does the most amazing Asian fried chicken wings. They are so crispy crunchy, they crackle in your mouth with deliciousness. These aren't as crunchy as takeout but they make a good substitute when you still want all the flavor of Asian BBQ. 

The original recipe calls for chicken thighs and drumsticks but you can easily substitute in chicken breasts but I made them with just drumsticks and it ended up being the perfect amount of protein.
