Sticky Sweet and Spicy Asian Style Oven Baked Wings

This wing marinade made with honey, hoisin and chili sauce and a touch of citrus, produces a sticky sweet chicken wing with just a tad bit of spicy heat and I guarantee you'll be lickin' your fingers on this one! Give it a try and tell me how much you love 'em y'all.

I highly recommend using Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Aluminum Foil when preparing wings in the oven. Here's how to make them.

Recipe: Sticky Sweet and Spicy Asian Style Oven Baked Wings

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Inactive: 2 hours |Cook time: 1 hour 15 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 serv

  • 1 (7 ounce) jar of hoisin sauce
  • Zest from one orange
  • 1/4 cup of Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • Couple dashes of sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cajun seasoning, to taste, optional
  • 4 to 5 pound package of wings, tips removed and drumettes separated, if desired

In a large bowl, whisk first 5 ingredients together, remove and set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture. Add the wings to the mixture, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove wings from marinade and place in a single layer on an aluminum foil covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning and bring wings to room temperature for about 30 minutes, then bake at 375 degrees F for about 20 minutes.

Remove wings and turn the oven up to 425 degrees F. Brush the wings with the reserved marinade, turn, season with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning on the other side, and brush the other side with the remaining marinade. Return to oven and bake at 425 degrees F for another 20 to 25 minutes. Devour.

Cook's Notes: Thai sweet chili sauce is a product that is found in the Asian food section of your supermarket along with the hoisin sauce. This recipe also works well with other chicken pieces such as a whole, cut-up chicken, drumsticks and/or thighs and breasts or pork. Adjust cooking time as needed.

Variation: Substitute pepper jelly for the hoisin sauce and use a basic chili sauce, such as Heinz, which is a tomato-based product containing tomato puree, onion, garlic and other seasonings and is found by the ketchup in your supermarket.
