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.

  1. Hi, can i check whether this marinade can be used for bbq? Thanks in advance..

  2. hi may i know how to make the cili dip..

  3. Is it possible to roast a whole chicken instead? Will the amount of ingredients used be compromised? Also, how about the temperature? Thanks so much for the advice!

  4. hi wiffy, i like honey chicken wings but the oven will always became so dirty after i baked it. The honey sauce became black and sticked on my ovens everywhere. Can i use the foil wrap to cover my chicken wings??

    • I don’t think it’s advisable to cover the chicken wings during baking. You can google for some oven cleaning tips (e.g. using baking soda). Or, contain the mess by cooking within a toaster oven or air fryer is another way.

  5. This recipe is good! Hehe tried it n taste awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I’ve always like that your recipe is easy and turns out great! My chix turns out to taste abit on the bland side even though I’ve marinated overnight…. not sure if its because of the proportion of the seasoning. But I did followed closely to the amount stated in the instructions. I’m going to make this for a Xmas Potluck, appreciate if you could advise me how should I double or triple the amount of seasonings. Thanks alot!

    • Hi! You can increase the amount of oyster sauce, to taste. You can also use other seasonings such as fish sauce or Maggi seasoning. Remember to use measurement spoons (not the silver cutlery) for accuracy. Hope it will turn out better on your second attempt.

  7. Hi, can i air fry this recipe?

  8. hi I like your Honey Baked Chicken Wings.

  10. Hello :)
