Air Fryer Garlic Soy Glazed Wings Hearthstone Lounge

Another menu item we missed out on while staying home from my birthday trip to Disneyland was the Garlic-Soy-Glazed Wings from Hearthstone Lounge at GCH. I had big plans for this snack stop! Luckily I have a great new way to make wings at home using my air fryer. It makes amazingly crisp wings with simple clean up. My secret to delicious wings - regardless of your target flavor - is to season with wings first and then fry them. Toss them in sauce right before serving so they are still crisp from the fryer and super saucy.

The wings at Hearthstone Lounge use Togarashi spice as their not-so-secret ingredient. It is a blend of red chili pepper, Japanese pepper, orange peel, black sesame seed, white sesame seed, hemp seed, ground ginger, nori, and poppy seed. I chose coriander and garlic to star in the seasoning for these wings and garlic to make a comeback alongside ginger for a saucy duet. It is an oil based marinade with a ton of spices which is actually super delicious on its own and take different sauces well. Easy Asian-style sauces are a combination of soy sauce, garlic, and honey. You can use fresh or ground ginger in the sauce for convenience. I tried both and didn't detect a significant improvement from fresh.

If you don't have an air fryer at home you can make these on the grill or try and bake them in the oven. Grill is fine when the weather permits. The air fryer is always ready though, rain or shine (or snow in Colorado's case)! Buy a tray of party wings and do yourself a favor... these are 100% your new favorite wings. Trust me.
