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. 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 on page 2). Otherwise, the part of the chicken touching the roasting tray will be soggy and oily.

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.

      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!

      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.

    hi, may I know which type of honey to use? or which brand u are using?


    • 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 :)
