  • Place the chicken wings in a large bowl. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the wings and toss to coat evenly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow chicken to marinate in refrigerator overnight or 8 hours.

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

  • Pour the chicken wings and marinade into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until thoroughly hot, about 45 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil from the baking dish and continue baking uncovered another 15 minutes. Serve hot.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I like the ingredients but I thought it needed a little bit more to it. So I also added ginger powder kechup and fresh garlic. My husband loved it and even my 3 year old ate his. Read More

3 stars as is but I made a bunch of changes and then they were awesome. 2 cups of soy sauce made it WAY too salty!!! and i use low sodium soy sauce and put less than the full two cups but even so it was HORRIBLY salty. I basically had to start over and this is how i made it: sautee 4-6 cloves of garlic fresh ginger sliced green onions and 1-2 sliced jalapeno peppers in sesame oil. then add 1/2 c. soy sauce 1 c. pinapple juice and about 1/2 c brown sugar. add black pepper red pepper flakes white pepper sracha sauce and a little honey. at that pnt you can re-evaluate the soy sauce and add more if need be. i tossed my wings in this on the stove and allowed them to cook as the sauce caramelized on top of them. then took them out of the sauce and broiled them for 25 min tossed them in the sauce on the stove again and let them cook on the stove for another 5 min and then re-broiled for 10 minutes before serving. my wings were pre-cooked so you may need to broil for longer to cook through but they cme out amazing Read More

Excellent although I added fresh ginger & garlic along with sesame seed oil and cooking wine with a hint of hoison sauce. I also tossed before the last 15 minutes of cooking to insure a good coating of the marinade. Oh yeah! Read More

Yummy yummy yummy. I made these for superbowl and they were great. I didn't have 5 pounds of chick. wings so I poured some of the marinade off before baking. I also added a little rice wine vinegar to marinade. They were sweet sticky and delicious. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

This worked out perfectly. I baked the wings first and then put the sauce (didn't boil) in a crockpot on low to keep warm for my party - amazing!!! This is the best recipe ever (I remember it from being a kid my mom made it too) Read More

I loved this. It s easy to put together with items readily available in your pantry. The marinade imparts good flavor yet doesn t overpower the chicken. I marinated the chicken overnight and finished the wings on the grill. Great recipe so simple. It's great as is but next time I may try a little minced fresh ginger to add some complexity. Read More
