Remove wings from marinate and place in a baking dish with some space between wings. Discard bag and marinate. Bake wings at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 20-30 minutes (until cooked through). Let rest for 10 minutes and move to serving dish. Sprinkle wings with toasted sesame seeds and remaining diced scallions. Optionally garnish with cilantro. Serve.
