  • Author: Seonkyoung Longest
  • Total Time: 50 mins
  • Yield: 2 1x



  • For the Chicken
  • 12 single wings (approximately 1 1/4 lb. / 567g)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbs. backing powder
  • For the Sauce
  • 1Tbs. sesame oil
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 3 thinly sliced ginger root
  • 1 tsp. Thai chili flakes
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. mirin
  • 1 Tbs. Sriracha
  • 2 Tbs. honey

For the Garnish

  • 1 green onion
  • cilantro
  • sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees.
    In a mixing bowl, toss chicken wings with salt, pepper and baking powder evenly. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake 20 minutes. Make sure wings are at least 1/2-inch apart so they have room to cook evenly and get crispy. Flip the wings over and bake additional 20 minutes or until wings are fully cooked and golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, let’s make Asian Zing sauce!
In a cold wok, add sesame oil, crushed garlic, ginger and Thai chili flakes. Now turn on heat to low and let it infuse flavors to oil, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine rest of ingredients for Asian Zing sauce in a mixing bowl. Also it’s perfect timing to chop your green onion and cilantro for garnish later on.
  4. Pour sauce mixture into wok, and increase heat to high. Bring sauce to a boil and keep stirring until sauce texture is syrupy and thick, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. By the time, your chicken wings are done cooking, remove from oven and transfer to wok. Heat the wok over high heat, and toss chicken wings evenly with sauce.
  6. Transfer Asian Zing Wings to a serving place, garnish with chopped green onion, cilantro and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
