Spicy Asian Wings

Hari says

Wings for me are the ultimate starter because they can absorb so many different flavours depending on what theme your dinner party may be taking. I think that any good dinner party is about making your guests feel relaxed and sharing food is a great way to do that, especially a bowl filled to the brim with chicken wings! You can also add dips, sauces and a whole host of other nibbles to make it more fun too.

These are my Asian style wings which are crispy, sticky and super moorish. I coat them in a mixture of simple ingredients to create the wonderful Asian flavour that I love. These wings have a warming kick from the Sriracha but the unmistakable aromatics of Chinese five spice which is simply divine.

Ideally I would recommend that you cook these on a wire rack in the oven to stop them sticking because you want to save all that wonderful gooeyness for your fingers. 

Oh and make sure you have some napkins!!

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 1kg chicken wings


  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp sriracha (chilli, garlic sauce)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice


  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Prepare the chicken wings – remove the tip and disguard and chop to separate the nibble and drumette and place into a roomy bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with 1 tsp Chinese five spice, mix to coat.
  3. Whisk the oil, soy sauce, honey, siracha sauce, lime juice, garlic, ginger and chilli flakes.
  4. Set aside about a third of the mixture and pour the remaining over the chicken and mix so the wings are fully coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 180°C and place a wire rack over a baking sheet.
  6. Place the marinated wings on wire rack and bake for about an hour. Turn them over half way through cooking. Cook until they dark brown and crispy.
  7. Put the reserved marinade into a pan and heat. Bring it to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes until it thickens.
  8. Remove the wings from the oven and put the grill on. Brush each of the wings with the thickened marinade and then place under a hot grill until dark and sticky. This will only take a minutes or two.
  9. Sprinkle with sliced spring onions and sesame seeds.
