Sesame Chicken Wings

These chicken wings are super sticky and flavorful.  They were a big hit at the Super Bowl party I brought them to last year.  
Maltose honey can be found at the asian grocery stores.  Regular honey can be used instead, but the wings will not turn out as sticky.  

Sesame Chicken Wings
12 chicken wings
1/2 cup oyster sauce
1/2 cup hoisen sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup maltose honey*
2 tsp five spice powder
5 tbsp sesame oil
1 stalk green onions, minced
3 tbsp sesame seeds
*Place the jar of maltose honey in hot water for about 15 minutes to soften before use, this will make it easier to scoop out of the jar.
Combine oyster sauce, hoisen sauce, soy sauce, maltose honey, and five spice powder in a sauce pan over low heat.  Stir frequently until the mixture is completely blended.  Turn off heat.  Stir in sesame oil.  Let mixture cool.  Toss wings in marinade.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  
Preheat oven to 350.  Line baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil.  Spread wings evenly on aluminum foil.  Pour rest of marinade over wings.  Bake for 45 minutes or until wings are cooked through.  Sprinkle sesame seeds and green onions over wings. 


  1. Oh Yum! I'm a chicken wing addict. Will give this recipe a run.

  2. Liz - I always love hearing from my fellow chicken wing fanatics. That's my favorite part of the bird.

    1. Could you please confirm that it is 5 tablespoons of Sesame Oil as this seems like way too much for such a strong flavoured oil? Thanks.

    2. Yes. The sesame is meant to be very dominant. However, nothing is written in stone, you can reduce the amount of sesame oil by half to get a lighter sesame flavor instead.
