Sticky Chicken Wings

I have been wanting this recipe from my SIL Elmien for years – I know, how sad that it took me this long to get around to asking for it.  In fairness though, I could always rely on Elmien to make these for us so I never really had to get the recipe but now, she and my brother live over 1000 kilometres away from us so it necessitated me having to make these myself.  You will be sorry if you don’t make these delectable, oh so moreish wings; yip, they are that scrumity and couldn’t be easier to make and I managed to only amend the recipe a wee little bit.  Do you always have the uncontrollable urge to amend recipes?

Sticky Chicken Wings


16 chicken wings
2 garlic cloves crushed
½inch piece ginger grated
2.5ml ground black pepper
15ml brown sugar
15ml sunflower oil
15ml white vinegar
30ml thick soy sauce
30ml honey
60ml sweet chilli sauce


  1. Remove and discard the tips of the wings.  If you like, you can cut the wings in half – makes for easier eating 😉
  2. Combine all of the ingredients and add the chicken in an oven proof baking dish and stir until well coated.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  4. Bake for approximately 45 minutes basting regularly.
  5. If the sauce is still runny, reduce in a pan and pour over the wings before serving.

  1. Always amend recipes……………… ALWAAAAAAAAAAAYS……………………….. ALWAAAAAAAAAAAAYS. Then it’s easier to say it’s your own and you don’t have to give anyone credit. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA……….. But then I’m just a crazy Cooking Monster.

  2. Chicken wings like that are a standby here … you can play around with the basic glaze quite a bit, of course, but your recipe is so much like my favorite way… and yours look especially nice the way you have photographed them 🙂

  3. Gorgeous – finally I am connected again! I think you posted a recipe and mentioned one of mine so please don´t think I was rude not thanking you…I just seem to be living in a world where I have very little interent connection 😦 Great recipe, anything you can eat with your fingers is a winner for me!

  4. Oh I’d love these Mandy, I’m going to bookmark this one! And no I have no real idea why we have to “play” with recipes, he only answer I can think of is “because we can” 🙂

  5. I too usually play around a little with ingredients, especially if there’s something really spicy but this recipe looks perfect as is although I might ease up on the chilli sauce just in case. The glaze looks absolutely beautiful and I can picture myself with a pile of these & some fresh corn on the cob – I’ll be happy.

  6. Ohmygosh Mandy! YUMMMmmmm! That looks and sounds absolutely incredible. This one is for my lunch file….just for me 🙂

    Have a super Thursday dear!

  7. Yes, I am an incorrigible recipe amender–can’t quite bring myself to cook without tinkering and tweaking, it seems. Clearly this amended recipe is well worth following just as it is, though! 🙂
