Honey Baked Chicken Wings Recipe

These Chinese-style baked chicken wings tasted deliciously just like barbequed chicken wings and are cooked entirely in the oven. Serve with your favourite chilli sauce and lime at the side.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 25 mins


  • 6 chicken wings about 500 grams
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp light soy sauce


  1. Prepare the wings by cutting to 3 portions at the joint (drummette, mid joint and end tip). Freeze the end tips for making chicken stock. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Marinade chicken with the rest of the ingredients for at least half an hour or overnight.
  3. Arrange chicken pieces on wire rack with foil-lined tray beneath. Bake at preheated oven of 200°C (392°F) for 25 minutes or until chicken turns golden brown, basting with remaining marinade and turning once halfway.

Noob Cook Tips

  1. You may also use the mid-joint or drumlette cut for this recipe.
  2. Rest the chicken pieces on a wire rack so that the excess oil can drip onto a foil-wrapped tray beneath. Otherwise, the part of the chicken touching the roasting tray will be soggy and oily.

      I bought the chilli from Pu Tien restaurant. I don’t have the recipe currently, will experiment in future and feature if successful.

          Hi, I can’t really remember, about 6 plus, I think.

    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!

    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??


    • wiffy replied: — March 25th, 2014 @ 1:01 pm

      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.

    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!


    • wiffy replied: — December 15th, 2014 @ 12:36 pm

      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.

    • wiffy replied: — March 7th, 2017 @ 8:59 am

      Hi any brand will do. I’m using the normal 100% pure honey.

    Hello :)

    I will like to try this recipe but I do not have oyster sauce on hand. Is there anything I can substitute it with? Thanks!

    Btw, I have tried some of your other recipes like chicken in chicken essence and aglio olio. They are yummy-licious!


    • wiffy replied: — April 17th, 2017 @ 9:25 am

      Hi, you can use a little more light soy sauce or 1/2 to 1 tsp fish sauce. And thank you :)
