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.
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.
