I have never marinated chicken wings before. The smart thing to do would be to Google some recipes, and check and see what other people do. I did none of these things. I made up my own marinade with no measuring and no plan.
Can you even bake marinated wings? Will they get crispy enough? I knew I was going to find out. I’m lucky though…Because these wings turned out DELICIOUS.
Crispy, Glazed Chicken Wings
Ingredients for the Marinade
- Rice wine vinegar (1/4 cup)
- Soy sauce (1/2 cup)
- Sriracha (1 tbsp, more if you like it hot)
- Brown sugar (2 tbsp)
- Curry paste (1 tbsp)
- Crushed or chopped garlic (1 tbsp)
*This doesn’t have to be exact.
Ingredients for Baking
- Jumbo cut chicken wings (I used 2 pounds)
- Olive oil (enough to brush on each wing, maybe 2 tbsp)
Ingredients for Glaze
- 1/4 cup of water
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sriracha
- 2 tablespoons of chopped/crushed garlic
- 1/4 cup of honey
Mix all your ingredients together in a large Ziplock bag. Add your wings. Let sit overnight (or for at least 2 hours before cooking).
Bring all the ingredients to a boil, and stir it frequently to dissolve the honey. Turn it down to low, let it simmer, and cook for about 8 minutes.
Strain (to remove the garlic). Set aside and let thicken.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Pat your wings dry. This will take quite a few paper towels, but it’s worth it.
Brush your wings with olive oil. Bake (on a roasting pan-this is the key to crispy wings) for 45-50 minutes.
Brush your wings with the glaze, and bake for another 10 minutes.
*I don’t have a roasting pan…But I do have cooling racks that you use for baking. I made my own roasting pan using a brownie pan and the cooling racks!
