Chicken wings in soy-chili marinade

Don’t we all just love finger food, all time favourite chicken wings in a soy-chilli marinade, whether it is as a snack at a party or a nosh with beer and wine. It means happy time!

We had friends coming over to enjoy dinner together later tonight, but since we hadn’t really had lunch I prepared some appetizers with other snacks. These chicken wings are juicy coated in a sticky sauce, finger licking good with a bite!

After marinating (3-4 hrs or preferably overnight) I transferred the chicken wings on a grilling rack into a hot air grilling combi-oven, 220°C for 20 min. Next slowly reduce the left-over marinade in a pan into a syrupy consistency and poured that over as sticky sauce (or you can choose to serve it in a separate bowl as a dipping sauce).

This is my own home-style Chinese soy-chilli marinade, a versatile base for all meat with endless variations. Instead of chilli-sauce I will use Thai Sriracha sauce for a tang and bite. Serve it as a snack or appetizer. The 3-4 hrs preparation time is for marinating the chicken (or overnight marinating).



  1. Clean chicken wings, pat dry and cut at joints in two halves (remove wing tip) transfer to a glass or plastic bowl.
  2. Add all marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix it thoroughly when sugar dissolves it's ready. Pour it over the chicken wing parts, makes sure all pieces are coated
  3. Set the chicken marinade aside in a plastic container for 3-4hrs or overnight, it will develop flavour and tenderize the meat. In between give it a good shake to coat the marinade all-over the chicken parts.
  4. You can prepare the finish on the barbecue grill, hot air/grill oven. Transfer the chicken parts on to a grill rack and/or baking pan into a pre-heated hot air grilling oven set temperature 220°C for 20min. If your oven tray is large enough you can bake/grill all chicken parts or in batches.
  5. In the meantime pour the leftover marinade into a pan and cook, when it starts to boil turn the heat down. Let it slowly reduce into a syrupy consistency. Taste the sauce, reducing enhances the flavour if you think it has become too salty add 1-2 tbs of water to your liking. When done pour it over the chicken as a sticky sauce or serve in a small bowl on the side as dipping sauce
