Crispy Sweet Sticky Wings & Honey BBQ Wings

Wings! Wings! Wings! Who doesn’t love some good ole crispy, delicious wings? These recipes are pretty simple but they’re most definitely in the top 3 wing recipes I absolutely love! I like the fact that the sweet and sticky ones are oven-baked and I love the spiciness combined with the sweetness of the sauce that coats them (I used a little more chili powder than the recipe called for because I’m heat queen – the hotter, the better). When I made these, I also made honey BBQ wings (recipe also included) for my PIC – so he had his wings and I had mine. It’s a beautiful thing not having to share. Yes, you read right. Spectacular Food + Not Having To Share = Unadulterated Bliss

Recipe Modified From Simply Reem

Ingredients:
1lb chicken wings
1 cup flour

For the marinade:
2 or 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

For the glaze:
1/4 cup strawberry jam
1/4 cup raspberry jam
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp Siracha sauce (or pepper sauce)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp red chilli flakes

Method:
1. Wash chicken with vinegar and lime and thoroughly dry chicken with paper towel, pork it with fork lightly.
2. Add all the ingredients (except the ones for sauce), mix well and marinate for 2 hours or overnight.

3. Once ready to bake preheat the oven to 400° F.
4. In a large clean plastic bag put the flour; add the wings to the bag one by one shaking of the excess marinate.
5. Shake the bag well so that the chicken pieces get well coated.
6. Put the chicken wings on the baking tray lined with oiled foil.

7. Bake for 25 minutes on one side. After 25 minutes or so turn the chicken wings and bake them on the other side for another 25 minutes. (this is halfway through)

8. While the chicken is baking, in a sauce pan add all the ingredients needed for sauce and bring it to a boil. Let it cook for another 5-6 minutes, keep stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and keep it aside.

9. Once the chicken is done, add the sauce to the wings along with chopped green onions, mix well to coat the chicken wings properly. Serve hot.

And on to the Honey BBQ wings

Recipe From My Kitchen Snippets

Ingredients:
1lb chicken wings
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 cup flour

Sauce:
1 cup of barbecue sauce of your choice (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
2 tbsp Sriracha chili sauce or any kind of chili sauce (optional)
3 tbsp honey

Method:
1. Marinate the wings with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika for an hour or up to overnight.

2. Heat oil to about 350 degree F in a deep fryer, or you can use a deep heavy skillet with enough oil to fry the wings.
3. Lightly coat it with the flour. Fry the wings in batches until they’re golden brown and crispy. I love my trusty old skillet/pan

4. In a small saucepan, heat up the BBQ sauce, chili sauce and honey.

5. Once the wings is done toss it with some BBQ sauce.

6. Serve at room temperature.

  1. Hi Tia, These look delicious. Love the idea of the strawberry and rasberry jam as a glaze. Can’t wait for the warmer weather to come so that I can try these out.
    Regards Florence.

  2. Tia, I love both of these recipes and especially the crispy crunch of the fried wings. I don’t have a favorite wing recipe, but I know I want to try one of these. I think my husband would’ve loved to have had a plate of these while watching the Duke basketball game last night!

    • Thank you!

      Funny you mentioned the game (albeit another game than what I’m gonna talk about) – We ate these during SuperBowl. Well actually I ate mine (Sweet and Sticky) – my husband was too upset with the Patriots to touch them. He ate them the next day. Mines were fantastic!

  3. A portion of each for me please…and yes, no sharing! We get some pretty decent sized wings off our home reared cockerels…none left at the moment, but when the freezer is full again I´ll be making these :)

    • You know I’m so jealous of you and Cecilia. I told me hubby a few months ago, when we buy a house I am going to raise chickens. He’s not too thrilled with the idea but my grandmother raised chickens back in the Caribbean when I was growing up and it was so nice to get fresh eggs. Then sometimes, I’d watch her chop off the chicken’s heads (tears)…I’m straying here …but like I said, I want to grow chickens too!!!

      These wings are jam-packed with flavor. You must try!

  4. Yum, yum, yum! I do love a good chicken wing and both of these recipes look truly amazing! I especially love the idea of those sticky wings with the sweet and spicy thing going on…one of my fave combos as I’ve posted. Great post!

  5. Now, although I don’t eat poultry (well, meat of any kind), I’ll cook it. And of course, the Caribbean Mother “Reds” will cook anything. These look de-vine. Definitely would be a hit, especially with the men of La Familia ’cause they’re sticky, and therefore, “finger licking”.

  6. 2 delicious and very tempting recipes! Guess I will have to try a portion of each – just for testing purposes of course.
    Thanks again for stopping by my little spot in the blogosphere. You have a fantastic blog.
    :-) Mandy
