Chinese Chicken Wings Recipe

Looking for that amazing snack for your Super bowl party? Well, look no further. Chinese chicken wings are the ultimate party snack. The amazing flavor of these wings lies within the marinade. The longer you marinate the wings for, the more flavor they will have. I would recommend at least overnight, but I usually do mine for about 24 hours. The marinade also makes a great dipping sauce for the wings or even goes great on top of rice. Β There is nothing complicated about this recipe as the marinade only takes a few minutes to mix together. The hardest part is if you want to cut the chicken wings but you can buy them pre-cut in the store. Enjoy.

3-4lbs chicken wings
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
Β½ cup pineapple juice
1 cup sugar
ΒΌ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a large bowl combine all of the marinade ingredients. Add the chicken wings, cover and refrigerate. Marinate overnight (or longer).
Step 2: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange chicken wings on a foil lined baking sheet. Pour marinade over wings.
Step 3: Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until wings are fully cooked.

    Oh man Bobby, those look and sound amazing. There is no rule against having wings for breakfast, right?

    Nice change from the standard Buffalo wing. Pineapple ginger, these sound great. And look spectacular!

    Nice – too nice in fact.

    I just know I’d end up wearing most of the marinade down my shirt.

    Wouldn’t stop me though πŸ™‚

    Marinating them right now… Thinking about putting them in the slow cooker tomorrow…

    I love this site!

    Bobby, you are the man! The baker man!
    I made your orange chicken the other night and I’ll tell you it was better than any take out I’ve had. Definitely going into the rotation.

    These wings are next up. Can you tell me if the flavor is like take out? Wings are my favorite when dining Chinese and if these taste the same as my favorite restaurant I’ll be so happy. Also, do you have the recipe for that greasy delicious batter used for frying shrimp and chicken fingers by any chance?
    Awesome recipe site my new friend. Please keep adding to it, and thanks!! πŸ™‚

  13. Bobby — September 18, 2009 @ 7:42 am

    Frank – I am glad you enjoyed the orange chicken! I cannot comment on if the wings taste like takeout, it would all depend on the place and what type of wings. Such as teriyaki.

    I am not sure about which batter you are referring too, more information is needed. Thanks.

  14. Frank — September 20, 2009 @ 4:40 am

    The wings that I was referring to are pretty much any appetizer wings you would find at any Chinese restaurant (I don’t know how they do it, but the taste is identical no matter which restaurant you go to). I’m pretty sure they fry them too. If it helps, I’m from New England.

    The batter is the thick oily, greasy batter type you would find when ordering deep fried shrimp, chicken fingers, sweet and sour chicken/pork, etc.. The batter is so thick you can pull the meat out and the batter will maintain it’s shape as a hollow shell! yum πŸ™‚
    Thanks again Bobby. I hope the info helps!

    I’m marinating the wings right now. It’s been 12 hrs. And there’s still another 15 hrs to go. Can’t wait

    I had to prepare this recipe twice, the first time as posted by the author, and the second time tweeked my way.

    First of all, I think its a joke for people to post responses without first trying the recipe. It might look good, might sound good, but until you taste it, reserve your thoughts! Drool after you taste, not while reading the recipe!

    These wings were good following the original recipe, but the second time I prepared them I substituted chicken stock for the water, cut the sugar and substituted with 1/4 cup honey, cut the vegetable oil, and used fresh grated ginger instead of ground.

    24 hour marinade is essential to this recipe being a success.

    Love your site, and will be trying the Kung Pow Chicken recipe next!

    I made these today

    Its GREAT

    The whole family loved it

    Thank you for this easy and UMMY recipe

    This recipe is absolutely to die for. I made it and actually ended up marinating the wings for 48 hrs. I think that made it even better. The chicken is flavored all the way down to the bone. And when it cooks, the meat just falls right off. My husband actually burnt his mouth trying to sneak and eat some wings as soon as they came out of the oven. Will be making another batch tonight!!!
