Fried, baked, or grilled, we've got the wing recipe for you.
Along with fresh minced ginger, the ginger beer in this recipe adds a nice ginger spice to the sauce, as well as sweetness to help round out the heat from a single habanero chili pepper.

Ever since The Food Lab uncovered the baking powder for crispy wings trick, I've been rocking grilled wings all the time.
