Finished Sticky Hot Wing Recipe On Black Plate

Chicken wings are the pretty much the perfect finger food for any party or game and this is, hands down, my favorite chicken wings recipe!  Sticky and sweet with the perfect amount of heat, they are truly the most lip-smackin’ delicious wings you’ll ever have.

Hot Wings With Sweet Heat

I’m somewhat of a hot sauce fanatic!  Lingham’s Hot Sauces provide the perfect base for these sticky hot wings with just the right amount of sweet heat.  Not only that, they are 100% all natural and have absolutely no bulking agents meaning you’re getting REAL flavor! (You can find them at your local Walmart). These sauces are perfect for dipping, dunking or adding a little sweet heat to any recipe!  This recipe is delicious made with either Lingham’s Hot Sauce (original) or the Ginger Hot Sauce—the Ginger Hot Sauce was our favorite! You can follow Lingham’s on Facebook or Pinterest for inspiration!

The Crispy Secret

A little tip before you get started; have you ever wondered how to make your baked chicken wings extra crispy and delicious?  I’ve always tossed my wings in a little bit of flour prior to baking but I learned the secret to a crispy oven chicken wings recipe a while back.  Adding just a pinch of baking powder (not soda) to the flour before tossing gives these wings an extra crispy finish.  Nobody will believe they’re not fried!

  1. Hello Holly!

    I could not find Lingham’s hot sauce where I live in California. I tried two different Walmart’s and three different chain grocery stores not to mention an Asian grocery store as well.

    Amazon was not an option at $14 a bottle either but no worries because I found Kikkoman triple ginger teriyaki sauce and used that in lieu of the hot sauce.

    It was a huge hit in my home! We used extra sauce for dipping! My family is asking when I will make this again!

    I think I will try with thighs next time!

    Was delicious….thank you for sharing!

  2. I made this tonight and was delicious. Used honey instead of mollases and added chilli flakes because im indian lol. But crispy and finger licking good! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Well, once again I was suckered into a baked chicken wings recipe that claimed to be unbelievable crispy. Your photography is fantastic, the end result, not so much. I followed the recipe exactly and it was at best, hot and soggy!
    I will not fall for another “baked” chicken wings recipe again. In 10 mins, I could have had crispy, sticky spicy wings. Instead, I spent over an hour for less than. Thumbs down!

  4. When you it says molasses does it mean liquid molasses as in black treacle or unrefined molasses, sugar crystals please? I am in the uK.

  5. I just watched a chicken wing recipe segment on The Today Show. The chef said the same thing about coating wings in baking powder to get them crispy. He didn’t even use flour. He lightly coated them in baking powder and they turned out just like they were made in a deep fryer.

  6. I’m trying to make these now. I just turned over wings to cook another 15 minutes. Is 30 minutes enough time for wings to fully cook before coating?

    1. Yes, if you’re cooking them at 425 degrees it should be perfect. Remember they will cook an additional 15 minutes once coated.
