Yummy Honey Garlic Wings! Choose your preferred way of cooking the Chicken Wings, Dusted or Naked, and Coat them in a Quick Honey Garlic Sauce or serve the Honey Garlic Sauce on the side for dipping.

Make Wings a Thing for Wednesday Night Wings.

Chicken Wings

Portion the Wings out to about 1 lb of Chicken Wings per person.

Pick up a box of these at your local Cash & Carry. Which are usually a lot cheaper than buying a package of maybe 1-2 lb at the grocery store.

I usually source mine from a Local Meat Shop that has these on sale frequently for 1.99 CAD per lb and sometimes at .99 CAD per lb.

Dusted Chicken Wing

For each 1 lb of fully thawed Chicken wings, toss with 1 tsp of each of the below to dust the chicken wings and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more. This allows for the dusting to get fully absorbed in and affect the skin for better crisping.

  • Kosher Salt
  • Baking Powder
  • Cornstarch

Naked Chicken Wings

Naked Chicken Wings have no dusting or special coating of any kind. Cook as is. Optionally marinate or brine prior to cooking.

Breaded Chicken Wings

For Breaded Chicken wings, my go-to is JFC Breading. Either plain or tossed in some sauce, like below which is JFC Honey Garlic Wings.

Deep Frying Wings

I have a double basket Deep Fryer, so I do 1 lb per basket. Deep-Fried at 350 F for 10 – 12 minutes. Shake the Basket when you place them in and again after a few seconds to ensure separation of the wings.

Honey Garlic Sauce

The Sauce used for the Wings is JAH Quick Honey Garlic Sauce. Made up in as little as 5 minutes. Simply combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Set aside and allow to cool while the chicken is marinating.

With this Honey Garlic Sauce, I usually include 1 -2 tsp of Rice Flour. Just to thicken it somewhat for a good coating on the wings. You could double or triple this for a thicker sauce. Depending on how thin or thick you like it.

Honey Garlic Ginger Sauce

The Quick Honey Garlic sauce already contains a pinch of Ginger. To elevate the Ginger note, add minced Ginger to the Sauce or more Ginger Powder.

Spicy Honey & Garlic Sauce

Add a bit of Chili Oil, Sriracha, or other hot sauce.
