Lemongrass Hoisin Sauce Chicken Wings

My version of Asian chicken wings is AMAZING!! Honestly, I impressed myself with these. I knew I had a good sauce but you’ll probably want to make a little more of this sauce and save it for a rainy day. You can use it on anything you want to eat chicken, vegan food, seafood or Chinese takeout etc.
