Sticky sweet replaces blazing buffalo with these tasty wings. Serve them as finger food appetizers for an outdoor party or as the main course for a family dinner when paired with seasonal sides.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and chili paste. Add chicken and let marinate for 15 minutes, stirring often.

Step 2

Set up a gas or charcoal grill for medium heat (350° to 400°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above the cooking grate only 5 to 7 seconds). Put chicken on grill and cover with lid. Cook, turning often, until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 3

In a small bowl, combine honey and hoisin sauce. Using a pastry brush, generously baste chicken wings with honey glaze. Cover grill with lid and cook till honey glaze starts to caramelize, about 3 minutes. Turn chicken wings over and baste again, using the remaining honey glaze. Cook 3 minutes more, being careful not to let the glaze burn, removing pieces from the grill as they're done.

Step 4

Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onion. Serve any remaining honey glaze on the side.

Yummy! The whole family loved them. Did on the BBQ. Great with cut up veggies.

We used boneless, skinless chicken thighs rather than wings. Have made it several times for large summer parties and it is always a bid hit.

This was an excellent dish! I used the broiler instead of the grill and it worked fine. I also served it with brown rice and the combination worked very well.

Great wing recipe. I marinated the wings overnight and baked them instead of grilling and that worked our great. Between the marinade, and the basting sauce these wings are wonderful Dont forget the sesame seed and green onions.
