Make Spice Rub For The Baked Asian Chicken Wings

Mix the ingredients for the spice rub together in a small bowl. The ingredients in the spice rub are ground ginger, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Set aside. See? Not too hard at all!

Spices are mixed to apply to chicken wings, before baking.

Prepare The Wings For Baking

Lay the chicken wing pieces on several layers of paper towel, and pat them dry. Place the dried chicken wings into a large mixing bowl (or freezer bag), and sprinkle with the dry spice rub. If you are doubling the recipe, make sure to do this step in two batches.

Toss the chicken several times until all the wings have been evenly coated on all sides with the spices.

Chicken wings are patted dry, then coated with dry rub spices before baking.

Cover a baking sheet with foil, and spray with a non-stick baking spray. Lay the seasoned chicken wings out on the foil, in a single layer, with a bit of space between each one.

Baked Asian Chicken Wings are then cooked (on the middle rack) in a preheated 400° F. oven. Bake the wings for 45-50 minutes, until they are nice and golden brown.

Baked Asian chicken wings are ready for the oven.

Prepare Sauce For The Baked Asian Chicken Wings

While the chicken wings are cooking, prepare the Asian-inspired sauce that will cover the wings, once they are done.

Whisk together soy sauce, dry sherry (or Japanese sweet rice wine/mirin), water, sesame seed oil, grated ginger, Sriracha sauce, minced garlic cloves, salt, pepper and cornstarch in a small bowl. Set the sauce aside, while you make a simple syrup.

Sauce is mixed to put on baked Asian chicken wings, after they finish cooking.

Make Simple Syrup For The Sauce

A few minutes before the wings are done, you will need to make a sticky simple syrup that will be added to the Asian sauce.  To do this, place water and sugar in a large skillet. Stir to combine.

Bring this mixture to a boil on medium heat, and once boiling, let it cook for one minute, stirring often. IMPORTANT: Make sure to only cook it for ONE minute, otherwise it might harden up!

Finishing The Asian Sauce

Once the syrup has cooked for one minute, immediately add the reserved Asian sauce into the skillet. Stir to combine, and cook this sauce on low heat for about 2 minutes, stirring often, until it has thickened.

Sticky syrup is cooked, then Asian sauce is added to skillet for chicken wings sauce.

Broil Wings After Baking, To Desired Crispness

As soon as the baked Asian chicken wings are done baking, turn on the broiler element for the oven. Move the chicken wings on the baking sheet up in oven until they are about 6-8 inches from the broiler.

Let the wings broil until they become crispy, but make sure to keep your eye on them so they won’t burn.  Turn the wings over and crisp up the other side under the broiler, then remove from oven. This step will only take a few minutes total! Remove from oven once done.

Prepare Baked Asian Chicken Wings For Serving

Place the baked and broiled chicken wings into a large bowl. Pour the warm Asian sauce over the top, then toss gently, to fully coat the wings with the sauce.

The wings come out of oven and are tossed in sauce to become Baked Asian Chicken Wings.

Now all that is left to do is to serve the wings!  Place the baked Asian chicken wings onto a serving platter, and sprinkle lightly with sesame seeds. You can also add some fresh cilantro (optional) if you want, for extra color!
