Sticky Asian Garlic Wings

I’ve been promising you guys chicken wings for weeks. Up until now, they’ve pretty much been empty promises. But here they are!

These have been well worth the wait, my friends. These sticky asian garlic wings are my favorite chicken wings of all time in the history of ever. I’m not a fan of buffalo wings.

I’ve never been a passenger on the buffalo everything bandwagon train thing. I just don’t love that buffalo chicken flavor, I don’t really even like it at all. It’s probably because I’ve been eating a version of this chicken wing my entire life and it’s so good.

My mom used to make these wings when we were growing up. We used to have them for special occasions like the day we got picked out and decorated our Christmas tree.

These wings are a little bit sweet from the brown sugar but it’s balanced perfectly from the soy sauce. The garlic and ginger add such a great flavor too so don’t leave it out!

This recipe was one of those recipes that you made based on taste so when I first started making them myself (years ago) it took a bit of tweaking to get it ‘right’.  Now they’re a football food staple around here. We also sometimes make this into a meal by serving it with rice and stir-fried snow peas.

  • 3 lb. chicken wing pieces
  • 1 C light brown sugar
  • 1/2 C soy sauce see notes for gluten-free suggestion
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Add brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and ginger to a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  • Line a rimed baking sheet with alluminum foil and top with a wire rack. Place chicken wing pieces on the wire, skin side up.
  • Baste the top side of the chicken with the marinade and bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, turn the chicken and baste the other side. Bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Turn and baste the chicken wings and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Turn and baste the wings and baste for 10 more minutes.
  • Serve wings immediately or keep warm.


Turning and basting the chicken wings several times seems tedious but it makes a difference in the wings. They bake more evenly and the marinade has a chance to form a nice sticky caramelized coating on both sides of the wings without burning. When following a gluten-free diet, be sure to use gluten-free soy sauce. I've used Kikoman, San-J Tamari and La Choy soy sauce in this recipe.

    These look great. I was going to make them for superbowl, but the store was sold out of wing pieces. I didn’t plan ahead very well. So I was wondering if the sauce would work over frozen meatballs instead? I was thinking of just heating them up in a dutch oven.
