Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

These honey garlic wings are sweet & sour, sticky and delicious!

I’m loving these Friday Recipe posts!  If you’ve been following along for some time now, you may have noticed that a group of us posts recipes on Fridays with the same main ingredient.  And having a prompt for every Friday is really fun…and very inspiring.  It gets me out of my regular blogging box, and searching for new recipes to try.  So far we’ve done strawberries, bananas, pecans, drinks, chili, spinach and today it’s chicken.

And the timing was perfect for chicken, because I just had a great book delivered to me in the mail: 125 Best Chicken Recipes by Rose Murray.  After searching through a tonne of great chicken recipes in this cookbook, I suddenly had a big hankering for wings.

It’s a rare occasion for me to have wings, especially since having kids, because wings were always something you ordered in the pub on a night out with friends.  And for some reason I never even thought about making wings at home before, so I guess it was time I tried.  I love chicken wings, all kinds…buffalo, teriyaki, salt & pepper…but especially honey garlic.  So when I saw a really simple recipe for honey garlic wings I made them.  And ate them.  And licked my fingers clean of the yumminess.  These are good my friends.  🙂

Honey Garlic Chicken Wings {A Pretty Life}

These honey garlic wings are sweet & sour, sticky and delicious!  Serve them up along with a fresh green veggie and oven roasted potatoes…so good!



Honey Garlic Chicken Wings



  • 3 lbs chicken wings (halved at the joint, tips removed, patted dry)
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp liquid honey
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)


  1. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with tin foil, and lightly grease it with oil.
  3. In a large bowl combine the hoisin sauce, soya sauce, rice wine, ketchup, honey and garlic.
  4. Toss the wings in the sauce, mixing to coat the wings well.
  5. Arrange the wings meaty side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, then turn the wings and bake for 10 more minutes or longer, until the wings are browned and crispy (and no longer pink inside).


– This recipe can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Just toss the wings in the sauce and store them in a bowl in the fridge until you are ready to bake them.

– I think next time I make these I will cook them on the BBQ!

    These look amazing!! I love wings but have never tried to make them at home. I really should!

      This was the first time I made them too, and they’re surprisingly easy! I think they would be even better BBQ’d!

    We really don’t eat wings very often either (except for my son away at college- I’m sure he eats a tonne!). These look tempting and I like that they’re baked and not deep fried. May have to give them a go this weekend.

      I love that these are baked too! I think they would be even better if they were BBQ’d! YUM!

    I’ve never made wings either. Maybe after the snow melts (it will eventually right?) I’ll try them out on the BBQ.

      Oh man, I hope it melts soon! It feels like this winter will never end!!

    I usually don’t cook my own chicken wings. I tend to stop by at M&Ms or go out for ‘Wing Night” but these look so easy and so tasty! What a great Friday night dinner after a long week. Adding chicken wings to my grocery list! ~Thea
