1. Honey Garlic Chicken Wings Recipe


For the Chicken Wings

  • 2 pounds chicken wings, drumettes and flats separated
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Chopped green onions (optional)
  • Sesame seeds (optional)

For the Sauce

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels and place them in a large bowl. Drizzle the vegetable oil over the wings and season them with salt and black pepper. Toss the wings to coat them evenly.

Arrange the seasoned wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through, until they’re golden brown and cooked through.

While the wings are baking, prepare the honey garlic sauce. In a small saucepan, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, garlic, paprika, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using). Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.

Remove the baked wings from the oven and transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the honey garlic sauce over the wings and toss gently to coat them evenly.

Serve the Homemade Honey Garlic Chicken Wings immediately, garnished with chopped green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.

The key to this recipe is the homemade honey garlic sauce, which combines the sweetness of honey with the savory notes of soy sauce, the warmth of paprika, the zing of ginger, and the aromatic punch of garlic. This sauce caramelizes on the crispy baked wings, creating a mouthwatering and finger-licking experience.

Feel free to adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to suit your desired level of heat. You can also experiment with different types of paprika, such as smoked paprika, to add an extra layer of flavor.

Homemade Honey Garlic Chicken Wings are the perfect crowd-pleasing appetizer or main dish. Serve them up at your next game day gathering, potluck, or family dinner, and watch them disappear in no time.
