Easy Baked Chicken Wings with Honey Sesame Ginger Sauce

I like the Asian Salad mix that is sold at Costco, and the other day I found two unused packets of the Honey sesame ginger dressing that comes with it, in my fridge. I hate throwing stuff away so thought long and hard about what I could do with them. Also had two individual packs of chicken wings from Costco so figured out a way to put them all together, with a little help from a chili garlic sauce for added zing
2 individual packs of Costco chicken wings (I guess it weighed somewhere between 2-3 lbs)
2 individual packets of Honey sesame ginger salad dressing that's sold with the Costco Asian salad mix)
2 tablespoons of any chicken seasoning mix (I like to use Grace Caribbean Traditions)
3/4 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder (optional but does make a difference in taste)
2 tablespoons Light soy sauce
2-3 tablespoons National chili garlic sauce (or similar)
1. Season the chicken wings well with the seasoning mix, and 5 spice powder. Put in a "ziploc" type plastic bag, and add the soy sauce to this. Marinate in refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
2. Set oven temperature to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange wings on a rack of a baking pan which has been lined with heavy duty foil (makes the clean-up easier). Bake wings, turning once until skin is browned nicely, even slightly charred in some areas (maybe 30-45 minutes).
3. Remove from oven and arrange in a smaller baking dish so that the wings fit compactly. Mix well the two packets of Asian salad dressing with the two tablespoons of chili garlic sauce. Pour this over the chicken wings and cover the baking dish with foil.
4. Decrease the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for another 25-30 minutes.
5. Remove from oven, and carefully uncover. Turn the wings over in the sauce to coat them well. Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake for a further 10-15 minutes until the sauce starts to bubble.  Remove from the oven and enjoy these sweet and slightly spicy wings!
