Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

Chicken wings have to be the quintessential football food. Every Super Bowl party needs to have a basket of wings and they need to be covered in sauce and packed with flavour. There are so many different flavours of chicken wings but today’s is a classic. Honey garlic wings are so popular in my house and they need to be sticky. The stickier the better!

Whenever I make chicken wings at our house, I never make only one flavour. Hot Buffalo wings are also very popular and I have already posted that recipe on the blog. If you are interested in that click here: Buffalo Chicken Wings.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 8-10 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 cup soya sauce
  • 1 cup honey

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, melt butter in a saucepan. Add the minced garlic and cook for a few minutes to release the flavour. Add the soy sauce and honey and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer. The sauce will thicken after 10 minutes or so.
  • Cut the wings into two pieces (drumette and two-bone peice – throwing away the wing tip).
  • Wash the wings and dredge them in flour. Shake off the excess flour and deep fry them in 350F oil for about 8-10 minutes.
  • Place them on paper towels to get the excess oil off and toss them with honey garlic sauce.

  1. Mmmm, honey always is great in conjunction with chicken, and there’s never enough garlic in my life. Sounds like a great party dish!

  2. I think if there was a 31 flavor wing place, I would still go for the garlic! Since they are flavored perfectly in my opinion, I am missing out if I do not try them-yum!

  3. Chicken wings equal foodball in my world. In fact I might enjoy the wings more than the game. Great recipe!

  4. soy sauce and honey make great friends. I love the sweet and savory aspect here.. great recipe. 🙂

  5. Oh my gosh Steve!

    Don’t throw the tips away!!!!

    Have an ongoing bag in the freezer and put them in that.

    When you have enough make stock, they are great for stock.

    Wings look great.

    • This is a great idea you have there Charlie! There is an Asian grocery store around the corner from me that sells chicken breast bones by the bag. After they remove the breast to sell them boneless and skinless they sell the bones for like a $.50 or $1 for a bag of them. Insanely cheap and that is my source for stock bones. But I could easily see myself saving the tips as well!

  6. I’m all about mixing up the chicken wing flavors, as the standard one gets old for me. Here’s an old one of mine that I think you might enjoy: http://sports-glutton.com/2011/07/26/tampa-bay-buccaneers-chicken-wings-recipe/
