Honey Baked Chicken Wings
These Chinese-style chicken wings tasted deliciously like bbq chicken wings and were cooked the fuss-free way, entirely in the oven. The marinade ingredients – honey, oyster sauce, sesame oil and soy sauce – are pantry staples in a Chinese kitchen.
Although they are baked/roasted in the oven, these wings have a beautiful sticky glaze due to cameralisation of the honey. We always fight over the last few pieces at the dinner table.
The secret to great tasting oven grilled chicken wings, to me, is to rest the chicken pieces on a wire rack so that the excess oil can drip onto a foil-lined tray beneath (see photo of oven set up above). Otherwise, the part of the chicken touching the roasting tray will be soggy and oily.
Hello wiffy ???? can i use bbq honey?
Just tried your recipe. Thanks. Great taste!
Can check with you.. My marinade (sauce) was burnt after basted. Any way to prevent it?
Btw, is it possible if I marinade in a baking dish and bake the wings together the sauce?
I just made your baked chicken wing today. Marinated 5 wings yesterday. Instead of 1 tsp of soy sauce, I accidentally added about 1/2 tablespoon. Was worried that it will taste salty. So I added just a little bit more honey. Turned out really good! Thank u!
Thanks for your note, happy to hear that you improvised and liked the result :)
