Roasted Chicken Wings

~ Posted on Thursday, September 2, 2010 at 12:05 AM ~

This is my 1st attempt of making: 



* Half hour for marinating
* Less than 5 minutes for glazing process
* 30 minutes for roasting process


Ingredients / Tool Required:

(Note: I actually chop off the wings and upper thighs, so for the sake of this recipe, I will just refer to it all as chicken wings)

* 6 uncooked chicken wings
* 1 teaspoon of Light soy sauce
* 1 teaspoon of Sugar
* A metal pot or container to store chicken wings when washing
* A container to store chicken wings for marinating overnight

What to Do?

* Clean the chicken wings by washing away the blood and all the yucky stuff (Okay, it's yucky to me...)
* Because I am not a fan of seeing blood on meat, I dipped the wings in a pot of boiled water for about 15 seconds.

* Pour away the water and pat the wings dry a bit.
* Sprinkle the chicken wings with 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of light soy sauce.
* Using hands, mix the sugar and light soy sauce around the chicken wings to ensure all parts are marinated.

* Store the chicken wings into a container and leave it overnight
(Note: If you don't want to marinate overnight, you can do so 2 hours before roasting but I'm the type of person with the theory that "More time, more absorption")


Ingredients / Tool Required:

* 1 tablespoon of Light soy sauce
* 1 tablespoon of Char Siew (or BBQ) sauce (better if you use honey but I don't have any on hand)
* 2 teaspoon of Dark/Thick soy sauce (to give the wings color)
* A little bit of Worcestershire sauce
* A container to store the glaze mixture
* A metal tea spoon
* Baking aluminium foil the size of wire rack

What to Do?

* Mix all the sauce listed above in a container.
* Line up a baking aluminium foil on the wire rack.
* Place the chicken wings nicely on the wire rack on top of the baking foil.
* Pre heat oven to 190℃ for about 5 minutes.
* Glaze the sauce mixture on top of each wings using a metal spoon.


* Place wire rack tray into oven.
* Set oven to 190℃ and bake for 15 minutes.

(See who is waiting anxiously for the roasted chickens!)

* After the 15 minutes is up, take out the baking tray and flip all the chicken wings to the other side.
* Repeat the glazing process.
* Place back the wire rack tray into oven.
* Set oven to 190℃ and bake for another 15 minutes or until the skin turns golden brown color.

Honestly speaking, this chicken wing above looks sooooooooooooooooooooooo yummylicious that I almost wanted to frame it up or make an Oscar deserving speech to thank my SIL and everyone else who helped me and supported me through my journey into the baking world...


* Test subject 1 (aka me): "Should have put more marinating sauce! Not salty enough!!"
* Test subject 2 (aka Ben): "Ahh-ahh-ahhh"(with climbing and dragging motions to try to pry chicken away from mummy's hands)
* Test subject 3 (aka MIL): "Eh, your roast chicken not bad but should be saltier."
* Test subject 4 (aka hubby): "Mmmmm yummy!!!!!!!! I like the taste!! The Wing part really hits the spot!"


* Increase marinating sauce amount
* Perhaps put honey (as per original recipe taught by SIL) instead of using BBQ sauce to substitute

So there you go.... my 1st ROASTED CHICKEN WINGS attempt!

Overall, I feel such a nice sense of accomplishment! It's such an euphoric feeling seeing the chicken wings get finished up and that people are happy with the food I made!

If you have any questions or tips to share, feel free to leave a comment as I might have left out details of it or I could find out more from my SIL who taught me this during my 1st baking class recently.

Btw, I will also write another post later for my 1st CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS (which I made right after the chicken wings).

Looks yummy and sure is a success !  Bravo!!


maybe next time, you can add a bit more soy sauce and salt, according to your taste. and honey is better for color Smile

looks yummy!!!


There is another way to do this, instead of putting in the oven, u marinate the same way, then pour everything, wings and all those sauce that u used to marinate with, into a non stick pan. Just add a little oil will do. Fry it, keep stirring till all sauce on pan dried up and stick to chicken wings. I find it to be more tasty this way. I had tried both and still find frying it make it tastier. Hope you like it. Give it a try. Hope you have a great weekend, smile always
