Chicken Wing Marinade Recipe

It’s almost time for Super Bowl parties, and what better of an appetizer to have at your party than chicken wings? This is almost required and here I have for you a delicious marinade for your chicken wings.

This marinade is both salty and sweet. The saltiness comes from soy sauce and the sweetness comes from both sugar and pineapple juice. Additional seasonings such as garlic powder and ginger are added for even more flavor.

The wings should be marinated at least overnight for maximum flavor. This recipe will marinate 3-4lbs of chicken wings. If you want to save time you can buy the already cut up wings in the store, or you could just leave them whole. Enjoy.


If you enjoy this marinade recipe, you may want to try my Qdoba steak marinade, carne asada marinade, and adobo marinade.

Wow, thanks for this recipe! I subbed orange juice for pineapple juice because I didn't have it on hand & it made the most delicious homemade wings. I'm not usually a fan of homemade wings but this recipe definitely changed my mind.

Hi, I don't have chicken wings. Would these work on chicken thighs?
