Chinese Five Spice Wings with Labneh & Cilantro Dipping Sauce

P5210040aWe adore hot and spicy wings and these with the combination of Chinese five-spice and cayenne are right up our alley.  They are easily made in the oven, which is great as I really don’t like frying, but they still come out nice and crispy.  The dipping sauce is a nice cool foil and because it’s dairy it helps cut the capsicum.
Chinese Five Spice Wings with Labneh & Cilantro Dipping Sauce
For dipping sauce:
  • 1/2 cup labneh*
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise 
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup of finely minced cilantro
  • sea salt & ground pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 500F.

In a large bowl mix together the five spice powder, cayenne, salt & pepper. Add wing pieces and toss to coat until all the spices are attached to the wings. Lay the wings skin side up on an aluminum foil lined baking sheets and bake for 25-30 minutes.

While the wings are cooking, mix together all the dipping sauce ingredients and allow for the tastes to blend.

Serve the spicy wings with the cooling sauce.

* you can substitute 1/4 cup sour cream mixed with 1/4 cup cream cheese for the labneh.

  1. Mmm, that looks delicious!

    I have to admit, though, I prefer the full fat Greek yogurt. I tried the nonfat once and it didn't seem thick enough; more like regular plain yogurt.
