These sticky hoisin chicken wings are any chicken wing lover’s dream! They are coated in sweet hoisin sauce and baked to perfection. They are not only perfect for parties & family gatherings but also lunch or dinner.
When it comes to chicken dinners, chicken thighs (see this Honey Lemon Grilled Chicken) are one of my favorite parts to cook with. Then I go for the chicken wings. I buy them and make them whenever I crave them so often they are our dinner.
And because I like sweet and sticky chicken wings, and because I was lazy to make anything that required prep taking more than 5 minutes, using hoisin sauce as one of the main ingredients seemed liked the perfect choice!
Why you should make hoisin chicken wings
- Easy prep – even your kids can do it!
- Perfect party appetizer – who doesn’t love good chicken wings, right? Try making these at your next party to impress your guests!
- Make ahead marinade – if you need to prep hoisin chicken wings a day ahead, then go ahead and do so! These chicken wings don’t need to sit in a marinade before baking but if they do they will definitely have a stronger flavor. So you can’t go wrong here.
By the way these baked hoisin chicken wings are one of my favorite chicken wing recipes altogether with Baked Curry Chicken Wings and Spicy Sticky Chicken Wings. They are perfect for family gatherings and parties!
How to make sticky chicken wings
The prep literally takes 5 minutes. Throw all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. That is how easy it is. Then all you have to do is transfer the wings onto a baking tray and bake it until they are done.
I usually bake them for about 45 minutes. If you prefer them crispier, add an extra time but I highly recommend keeping an eye on them. You want your sticky hoisin chicken wings crispy, not burnt!
- Honey – try adding maple syrup instead of honey.
- Soy Sauce – if you don’t have one on hand you can just skip it or use Worcestershire sauce.
- Sesame Seeds – I sprinkle these over these hoisin chicken wings right after they are out of the oven.
- Lemon – I like squeezing some lemon juice over the chicken wings but if this is not something you would enjoy, that’s completely fine. You can, however, serve lemon wedges with the wings in case some of your guests would like to try it.
- Chives – omit them or use spring onions instead.
