Simple marinated chicken wings

Based on 10 ratings

"Chicken wings are perfect when you want to grill (on an actual BBQ or in the oven) something simple and delicious for a crowd. They are forgiving in that they are hard to overcook. In this recipe, we made a quick marinade to ensure they’re seasoned inside and out. The soy sauce adds both a nice golden brown color and an umami touch, balanced with honey and lime. Remember to put aside some of the marinade for brushing on right before serving."

  • Step 3/4

    Roast wings in the oven for 20–25 min., flipping once halfway through. Once the wings have a dark golden brown color, and the juice runs clear when poked with a knife, they are ready. If you want more color, turn on the grilling function for a few minutes, but watch closely so they don’t burn. In the meantime, toast some sesame seeds for serving.
