My mom got this chicken recipe from a friend over 30 years ago. We have since made it for pretty much every party! We like salt in my family, so up the lemon and orange juice and minimize the soy sauce if you are salt-sensitive.

Directions

  • Whisk together the soy sauce, lemon juice, onion powder, garlic powder, bay leaves, and orange juice in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the chicken wings and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours to 2 days.

  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake the chicken wings in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 45 to 55 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. For crispier skin, drain the juices from the pan during the last 10 minutes of baking.

"Chinese" is kind of a misnomer for these wings. "Soy sauce wings" would be more accurate. I'm the sort of person who will salt something before I've even tried it because I know it won't be salty enough and I found these too salty. With the recipe's ratios the orange juice and other spices are completely masked by an overwhelming taste of soy. I would suggest swapping the two ratios putting two cups of orange juice in for every cup of soy sauce and maybe adding some brown sugar or honey. Read More

Everything good chicken wings should be: tender moist flavorful and addictive. I marinated the wings for 48 hours. Although baking times may vary mine were done with 7 minutes to spare and they were fall off the bone pure goodness. I garnished the wings with chopped Chinese parsley. Read More

The flavors were great. I precooked the wings for 15 minutes to assure they were done well. Then I did the marinade overnight. The balance of the baking was good but they tended to stick to the foil lined pan. I would make these again. Read More
