Asian Style Chicken Wings Recipe

When I was a kid my mom made the best chicken wings; marinated in soy and then dipped in flour and deep fried, I could’ve eaten them every single day. These wings are baked instead of fried, but with a marinade of sake, soy, ginger, and garlic, they have a lot of flavor. You can marinate them for as short as an hour, but I let them sit for about 24 hours for maximum flavor.


1 lb chicken wings
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup sake
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 garlic cloves
2 tsp chopped fresh ginger
1/8-1/4 tsp hot sauce or pinch of hot pepper flakes

  Mix the soy sauce, sake, sugar, garlic, ginger, and hot sauce in a bowl before pouring over the chicken wings. Stir well to coat and let marinate overnight or at the very least, 1 hour.

  Pre-heat your oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with foil. Transfer the wings to the sheet in a single layer and bake for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through.
