Glazed Honey Garlic Chicken Wings are quite popular in my family not only because of the sauce, but also because of the ingredients. Ever since I get my little oven, I am testing baked Chinese style food such as Chinese BBQ, Shar Sui Pork, Shar Sui chicken etc. This recipe today is Chinese style baked garlic chicken wings with honey.

The sauce I used combines chopped garlic, oyster sauce, vegetable oil and light soy sauce. The marinade sauce is the soul of baked wings. Generally a longer marinade time can help the chicken wings absorb the taste.As a big fan of chicken wings,  I made different types of chicken wings for example, red-cooked chicken wings and coca cola chicken wings. Do check them if you are a fan of chicken wings as me too.

Both mid joint or chicken drumettes are ok for this recipe depending on your own preference. I love mid joint and my husband loves drumettes. So I mix those two types together.  Firstly after wash the chicken wings, we need to soak them in clean water for around 30 minutes to remove the raw taste.

honey garlic chicken wingsDrain with pepper. Mix the chicken wings with the sauce in a container.Cover the container with plastic wrap  and put into freezer for at least 4 hours. Overnight is best since  the longer the marinading time is, the stronger the taste will be. If you are in a hurry, you can cut some scratch on the surface gently to help the meat absorb the taste of the sauce.

Place the chicken wings on the grill and lay one layer of silver paper on the ovenware. Place the grill over the ovenware so the sauce will not sprinkle on the oven. Set up the oven to 390 degree F and bake for 15 minutes,  turn over and brush the other side with honey water and  continue bake for 10 minutes. Then voila and Enjoy.

    1. Hi Thida,
      Personally for this recipe, grilling might be the best choice. If you prefer to deep fry, then use breadcrumbs to coat the wings.
