Honey garlic chicken wings are absolutely delicious. They’re sweet and sticky and the perfect addition to any appetizer plate. These chicken wings are oven baked until crispy and then coated with a honey garlic sauce.

It contains some of my favorite Asian flavor combinations too: soy, garlic and ginger. This magic threesome is a never-fail basis for salad dressings or marinades.

Serve them alongside buffalo chicken wings and other easy snacks like loaded nachos for the perfect party spread! 

Delicious Honey Garlic Wings

Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

This Chicken Wings recipe is easy to make. It starts with wings dabbed dry and dusted with a flour mixture. The wings are baked until crisp, we love making chicken wings in the oven. A little sweetness and a lots of ginger and garlic make these honey garlic chicken wings hard to resist!

Chicken Wings in the Oven

When you order chicken wings at a restaurant, they deep fry them. It’s so much better to make chicken wings in the oven at home!

Chicken wings in the oven come out every bit as crispy and a whole lot less greasy. Plus, you don’t have all the oil spatter or cleanup to worry about. Just toss the parchment paper and foil when you’re done.

The secret to making homemade chicken wings crispy:

  • Dab them dry them thoroughly with paper towels before coating them with the flour
  • Ensure the flour is just a dusting (not clumped or thick)
  • Make sure your oven is good and hot before popping them in so the skin will crisp up quickly

Chicken Wing Sauce

You can use any kind of chicken wing sauce for this recipe from Buffalo Sauce to simply salt and pepper. In this chicken wing recipe, a simple homemade sweet and sour sauce is baked until delicious and sticky.

For this wing sauce, I pump up the volume by adding extra garlic and ginger. The result is a perfectly heavenly combination of sweet, salty and meaty umami flavors.

How to Make Wing Sauce

The trick to the best wing sauce is making sure it’s thickened so it sticks to the wings.

  • Combine the wing sauce ingredients in a small saucepan
  • Simmer until thickened, the sauce should coat the back of a spoon
  • Use a foil lined pan (easy clean up) topped with parchment paper (so the wings don’t stick)
  • Allow the wings to bake/caramelize
  • Cool 10 minutes before serving which will help the sauce to thicken further

Honey garlic chicken wings are perfect as party wings. Serve them with a veggie plate containing celery sticks, broccoli florets and a variety of dipping sauces. Ranch dressing or your favorite blue cheese dressings are easy dips.

  1. These were AMAZING! I’ve been a vegetarian for 13 years and have recently been interested in eating more meat (only if it’s absolutely delicious), and this is one to get me there!!!!!! YUM!!!!!5 stars

  2. First time making chicken wings. I bought the whole wing and had to separate the tip, the flat and the drum. For the price, I’d do it this way again. The sauce simmered from the time I started trimming until I completed baking in two batches. The texture and flavor of the sauce was perfect. I purchased 3.4 lbs of wings but wish I had gotten more. The sauce is delicious for this recipe, so much so that I’ll use it for a chicken breast meal in the future. It was a bit of work however I hope people try this recipe it was worth the effort. I made use of my time in between making your potato skin recipe as well. I have found so many great recipes on your site. Thank you!!5 stars

  3. This recipe has perfect flavor and is wonderful with grilled chicken and rice! My family asked for more sauce, as this recipe tastes so good. I will be doubling the recipe next time. Definitely a keeper!5 stars

  4. I brined my wings before coating with flour. I think that may have improved the flavor and texture.

    I followed the recipe for baking the wings in the oven. I used more flour, but it came out well. After I tossed the chicken in the sauce and put them back in the oven, the sauce dried enough so the wings weren’t sticky to handle.

    This was much less messy than deep frying or sauteeing the wings atop the stove

    THANK YOU.4 stars

  5. I have not tried these yet, but they look delicious! I have tried some other recipes of yours and all 5 stars.

    Just a note that in the number 3 instruction it should read “and bake for 35 minutes”
    instead of “and for bake 35 minutes.”5 stars

  6. Delicious!

    I adjusted the recipie slightly, by adding additional seasonings to the dusting used to coat the chicken, and used a wheat flour alternative (due to allergies).

    Absolutely gorgeous recipie, wish I made more!

    Thank you do much4 stars

  7. I am going to make this but have a new toaster oven that does “air fry, air bake, air roast, & air broil”.
    What would be the best way to make this recipe using one of these or a combination of above? Note: I do prefer crispy wings but not burnt. Thanks

    1. I would suggest using the “air fry” function and cooking at 400°F for 20-22 minutes on the wire rack that was included for air frying. Once crisp, you can toss the wings with the sauce and cook them in a pan in the toaster oven. You’ll likely need a few minutes less as toaster ovens tend to run a little bit hotter.

  8. thank you so much for this recipe! I followed the instructions and the wings tasted sooooo good! the whole batch was gone and I didn’t even have a chance to take a picture!

  9. I used the sauce for 8 drumsticks and it was the perfect amount. I will do low sodium soy sauce instead of regular next time (and I’m a salt craver!) But woooow is this ever delicious thank you! The meat was caramelized and sticky! Genius!4 stars

  10. Another solid recipe from Spendwithpennies, my husband is cutting out spicy foods so I needed to try something new for chicken wings and this was a big hit! Thank you!5 stars

  11. Just made these for dinner and it tasted great! Really easy too. Served with a classic side of chips.5 stars
