Tender succulent oven baked chicken wings marinated in tasty honey + oyster sauce flavours. So easy to prep for – just follow this recipe!
I relied on this recipe alot in my early days of cooking. I used to make it almost everytime we had a potluck or barbecue – because it was so easy to prepare. Just buy the chicken wings, pat dry, add marinade and pop into oven. And everytime, I would get the best feedback about the wings which spurred me on to repeat the dish at the next potluck!
Let’s talk about the wings first. i buy the whole chicken wings from the supermarket. About 10 whole wings. I then cut them into two – so there is one part drumette and one part wingette (yes it’s a word) with the tip. I find these easier to serve and guests tend to appreciate that it’s not such a large piece. See pic above.
To the wings, I add a handful of pantry staple ingredients such as honey, oyster sauce, sugar, chilli sauce, among others. Most of these ingredients trust me you will already have in your fridge/pantry. No need for any fance add ons.
See easy? The wings are baked at 180C for 30 minutes. I usually line my baking tray with baking paper for easier clean up. You may flip them in between or just leave them be. Dress them up with some sesame seeds or some finely chopped springs onions/red chilli.
I love this recipe because if I have to decide last minute on a dish to make, this would be it. I also marinade the wings prior and leave it in the fridge for a bit so the flavours get soaked into the meat. Before popping into oven, remove from fridge about 1 hour before.
