Sticky Spicy Honey Garlic Wings

I'm ready to put away the heavy down comfortor.

I'm ready to put on a pastel colored cardigan over a light floral dress.

I'm ready to jump on a banana seat bike for a leisurely ride down the block.

I'm ready to look for four leaf clovers and pick daffodils in the park.

Spring I'm ready for you.  Oh yes.

You know what else I'm ready for? These delectable wings. Serve with steamed jasmine rice and stir fried broccoli.   

Sticky Spicy Honey Garlic Wings
Adapted from MomWhoCooks via Allrecipes.com

24 chicken wings, split
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons sriracha hot chili sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey, or more if you like a sweeter sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup water


Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Mix together the brown sugar, garlic, chili sauce, 1/2 cup water, honey, and soy sauce.

Arrange the chicken wings in a baking dish; pour sauce over the chicken wings and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes, or until cooked through.

Take wings out of the oven and pour the cooking juices into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water together and add to the sauce. Cook until thickened.

Set oven to broil on Hi. The rack should be positioned in the middle of the oven.

Pour the thickened sauce back over the wings and return to oven. Broil until sauce is golden and bubbly.


  1. I just finished polishing off a chicken wing from a store-bought roast chicken. Definitely not sticky, gooey, good like the ones you have here. But I'll just imagine. I'm ready for spring, too.

  2. Amazing picture....I so want these. They look like they would hit the spot.

  3. Ohhhh i am loving that glaze.

  4. Love how it looks :) congrats on top 9 :)

  5. Awesome pics and congratz on the top 9 :).

  6. Does this have sesame seeds in it or is that little pieces of garlic? Either way.. I must make these.. tonight!

  7. made this for dinner last night but i used drumsticks instead of wings and a squeeze of lemon to the sauce. It was PERFECTION. My roommates all had a taste and are begging me to make it again. Thank you for posting the recipe!

  8. My mom used to make something like this for me after my basketball games when I was little, but I don't think she used the honey. No wonder that glaze looks so gooey good. My kids would love this.

  9. Oh sweet fancy Moses!

    Your food is gorgeous I can ALMOST, just ALMOST taste it. Mmmmmm...

  10. Have you ever tryed this sticky garlic sauce with chicken hind quarters cut up ? I bet that would work too.

  11. Oh yes please, would love a feed of these wings. And I want them outside on the patio, with a nice cold glass of wine. Please, please, please. I guess I will currently settle for the wings, thanks for the recipe these look and sound great.

  12. SO FRIGGIN' GOOD!!!!

  13. This looks so tantalizing! I really am excited to try this glaze.

  14. Made these last night they were delicious. Couldn't figure out how to get them gooey and sticky on both sides though/when to turn them over. Yummy sauce

  15. I made these last night and the sauce was fabulous. The wings got nice and sticky and awesome. I couldn't figure out how to get them like that on both sides without one side being gooey and not as good though.... Are they supposed to be flipped over at a certain time?

    Also made them with frozen chicken wings, took an extra 10-15 min on the cooking time and worked perfect!

  16. Thanks to Anonymous above, I flipped and rebated during the broiling phase to even the crisping. I also broiled on a grill rack above a foil line baking sheet to let more air circulate to the underside when it was in the shade. Good tip off, thanks!

  17. Bookmarked. The person I want to make this for has his own perfected chicken wing recipe. I am a bit nervous about making anything that could be compared to it but this might be just the thing ^ ^
