Chinese Chicken Wings

Adapted from this great recipe. So simple! So good! Who knew I could make chicken wings at home!


  • ~2.25 lb chicken wings, wings and ‘drums’ separated
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup hoisen sauce
  • 1/2 cup chinese rice wine
  • 1 tsp chinese five spice powder
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 stalks of green onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tbs ginger (powder)
  • 3 dried red chilies, sliced


Prep all ingredients besides chicken in a large mixing bowl. Slice the necessary ingredients to maximally expose surface area. Marinate chicken overnight. Preheat oven to 350F. Place chicken, drenched in marinade, on aluminum lined baking pan, skin down first. Brush with another coat of marinade, and bake for 30min. Flip wings to expose skin (should be browned a little by now). Brush on more marinade and continue to bake, another 30 min. If the wings ever look too dry, brush on more marinade.
