These wings are sweet and sticky like candy! The sauce can be reheated and poured over a side dish of rice. Make sure to bring the sauce to a boil, and simmer for several minutes to kill any bacteria that may be present.

This recipe was really good! I added a good splash of cider vinegar and about 10 dashes of hot sauce to the marinade before boiling. I also used chicken strips instead of wings. The chicken cooked perfectly on a shorter schedule: 10 min. turn 10 min. then 5 min. on a broiler pan. Also I made another half-batch of marinade (with 1 tablespoon cider vinegar and 5 dashes hot sauce) and stirred in 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons water while it boiled. I served the extra sauce for dipping and the next day threw the leftovers together into one container. It microwaved up just as good as the oven version! The next time I do this I plan to make rice and serve the chicken and sauce over it! Read More

I would not recommend it. It had the weirdest smell and taste. Most of the time the recipes with a lot of stars are very good. This one is not. Read More

These wings were great. I don't boil or refridgerate the sauce first. I just mix the ingredients well then pour it right on top of the wings. No need to go through the extra steps they turn out perfect without it. Read More

This is definitely TOO sweet! I was so sure of this recipe I mean it has almost identical ingredients to dozens of other recipes I've tried however upon looking back at the ingredients I noticed it was missing one key ingredient other similar recipes had: vinegar. I think that is why this was too sweet it was missing vinegar and hence a 4 star rating instead of a 5. I think because this recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of honey maybe 1/4-1/2 cup of vinegar should be right? Anyhow I added freshly grated ginger to the sauce to give it more of an asian flare. The good thing about this sauce is that it did carmelized nicely on the wings. Read More

Decided to take this a step further by adding balsamic vinegar to the marinade cut the honey back to 3/4 of a cup and added garlic and onion powders. While my chicken was cooking I placed the marinade into a sauce pan to reduce and become nice and thick. Once the chicken was almost done I brushed the thickened sauce over the wing added some sesame seeds and baked for another ten minutes. Kids and hubby flipped over this. Thanks Vickee! Read More

Great wings... brought them to a Wing Contest and they went over very well. One of the first wings to disappear. I topped them with toasted sesame seeds and green onions. Would have added a little cayenne and increased the baking temp after taking the foil off next time. Read More

Absolutely loved these wings! What a nice change from the same ol' hot wings. I used extra garlic and did add some cayenne pepper and a pinch or two of crushed red pepper to add a little zip to the sweetness of the wings. I only wished I doubled the recipe because they went to fast! Thanx for a great recipe!:-) Read More

I didnt have any honey on hand but had a huge craving for "sticky chicken" so I used corn syrup and also because of the mess my kids make with wings I substitued drumsticks. The kids ignored the side dishes and went ga- ga over the chicken. We had -NO- left overs with this chicken!! Thanks Vickee! Read More

Sorry! This recipe was almost the worst thing I have tasted. The wings were way to sweet and it needed more seasoning. The soy sauce gave it a nasty after taste. I would not recommend this recipe to anyone. Read More

We liked it. I changed the servings because I had a 3 lb bag of wings. There were 4 of us (5th was a child who doesn't like chicken so he doesn't count) and there were still not enough wings! I marinated 20 hrs. I would give it 5 stars but there is a another recipe here I like better. (Japanese Chicken Wings) Read More
