These Honey Garlic Chicken wings are tossed in a sweet-savoury sauce and baked until crispy. Sticky, sweet baked chicken wings are absolutely addictive and the perfect appetizer on every occasion.
While I am a little partial about Air fryer Chicken wings, these oven-baked sticky Honey garlic Chicken Wings are equally good and addictive. The Asian inspired Honey garlic sauce is sweet, savoury and with a hint of heat to it. Perfect appetizer for a party or games night.
Instead of baking the wings until crispy and then tossing them in the sauce, this recipe calls for tossing the wings first in the sauce and then baking them. The sauce gets cooked along with the wings and turns into a beautiful sticky sauce. And that is not all, once baked the wings are again brushed with the remaining marinade.
Honey Garlic Chicken Wings in the Oven
Get pre-cut chicken wings, which most supermarkets sell. If getting uncut(the whole ones), cut into drummettes and winglets as shown below in the picture. You can save the wingtips to make stock.
Steps to make
Make the marinade - Mix all the ingredients for the sauce. I have used sambal Oleke ( chilli garlic paste) here, you can substitute with sriracha. Use all-purpose Soy sauce for the recipe ( not light or dark soy sauce).
Marinate Chicken Wings- We are not marinating these for a long time, 10 -15 minutes is fine. Meanwhile, you can pre-heat the oven.
While wings are resting in the sauce, prepare the pan with two layers of foil and top it with a layer of parchment paper. This is for easier cleanup. Because we are baking the wings along with the marinade, the sauce gets really sticky once baked.
Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes, then bast with the leftover marinade. Bake again for 20-25 minutes.
I am sure there must be enough marinade left in the bowl at the end. No, We are not throwing away the marinade, instead, bowl it down and make a sauce. It is important to cook the marinade, as it was used to marinate raw chicken.
Once the wings are baked, brush it with the remaining sauce.
Serving Suggetsiton for Baked Chicken wings
These are so finger-licking good, you wouldn't even bother what's on the side. Maybe some beer or a glass of wine to wash it all down. This Asian Cucumber Salad works great on the sides too.
