  • 2 pounds chicken wings


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil toasted
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 inch ginger piece, minced
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 tablespoon mirin or Chinese cooking wine
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon five spice powder


  • 1 red chili chopped
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds


  • If your chicken wings are whole, cut them into 3 pieces at the joints and discard wing tips.
  • Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl or ziploc bag and whisk.
  • Add the wings to the marinade, toss them around and make sure they are fully covered in the marinade.
  • Refrigerate over night, or at least for an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • Place the wings on the baking sheet, don't discard the marinade. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, brush with remaining sauce, then place back in the oven and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions, sliced chili, sesame seeds and serve hot.


  1. Transfer leftover wings to an airtight container. They will last in the fridge for 4 days. You can reheat them in the microwave, or pop them back into the oven at 375F for about 10 minutes or until they're heated through.
  2. You can also freeze these. Cooked wings are good for 6 months frozen. You can reheat them straight from the freezer either in the microwave, or in the oven at 375F for 15-20 minutes.
