Chinese Five Spice Rubbed Wings with Sweet Chili Ginger Sauce

"Chicken waaaangggs. Yum! The Chinese five spice dry rub on these wings is made of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Szechuan peppercorns, and fennel seeds. What’s so delicious about this spice is it incorporates all five elements of taste: salty, sweet, our, bitter and umami. It’s full of such warm and cozy flavors too which is perfect for the fall season!"
