  • Wings:
  • 8 chicken wings
  • 2-3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • Glaze:
  • 2 large oranges
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper adjust to your personal spice tolerance


  1. Preheat oven to 400. Place a wire rack in a baking sheet and grease it.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, toss chicken wings with oil, salt, and pepper. Lay chicken wings out on the wire rack in one single layer. Try not to crowd them.
  3. Bake wings for 45-50 minutes.
  4. Glaze:
  5. Squeeze the juice out of oranges and mix it with soy sauce and honey. Press in garlic and add grated ginger and cayenne pepper. Whisk well.
  6. Add the mixture to a sauce pot and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat to medium and let it simmer, stirring often, until the liquid is reduced by about half and looks more like a glaze. Take the sauce pot off heat.
  7. Once the wings are done, toss them in the glaze and serve.
  8. **Note: The graze is enough for 8-10 wings.
