Celebrate Dad with Honey Coriander Chicken Wings from ‘Ohana

Celebrate Dad with Honey Coriander Chicken Wings from ‘Ohana

Just as our favorite little blue alien reminds us, “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” We have a great recipe for you to share with your “Ohana” this weekend to celebrate Father’s Day with a special, taste of Disney.

From ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polyneisan Village Resort

This special recipe comes from the tropical themed dining experience found in the Disney’s Polyneisan Resort. This recipe for chicken wings has a balance of sweet, nutty, and can be spiced up a bit.

Additional dipping sauces can also be used to add extra flavor. Ohana offers peanut and sweet-n-sour sauces to use for dipping. An added bonus is that they may be enjoyed hot or cold to add fun to your next family picnic.

Instructions for Coriander Wings

I have the same question. Surely it's not 1 and 3/4 cup honey.

Question: on the Honey Wing Sauce, it says 1 cup of honey and on the next line is 3/4 cup of honey. Is it 1 3/4 cup of honey or is it supposed to be one of those lines and one should be deleted? Just want to be sure as have never made wings before and O’Hana’s are great so I am going to try this. Thanks!
