Sesame Chicken Wings

I hope everybody had a great holiday weekend! It’s been a food filled weekend for us!

We went to Gary’s family’s annual BBQ. We were in charge of burgers, hot dogs, and chicken wings.

I made 2 types of wings. One was the hoisin 5 spice marinade I’ve used before. I doubled the recipe for 3lbs of wings and marinated overnight, and it was incredible with wings! We had some left over afterwards, so I baked those for 30 min at 425° on a greased foil lined pan.

I found the second recipe at They have lots of great recipes! I loved the fact that I had everything on hand. This was such a simple recipe, and it tasted so good!

Sesame Chicken Wings

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
4 green onions, with tops, sliced
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons sesame seeds (I used roasted sesame seeds)
dash ground black pepper
dash ground cayenne pepper, optional (I added)
3 pounds chicken wings

In a large food storage bag, combine soy sauce, water, sugar, sesame oil, green onions, garlic, sesame seeds, and peppers. Add chicken wings; turn bag to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove chicken to a shallow rack in baking dish or roasting pan. Discard the marinade. Bake wings, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Turn wings and bake 25 minutes longer, or until tender. (I grilled these).


  1. How long did they take to grill? I'm sure not an hour like the oven version...

  2. Jessica: not long at all. about 10 mins per side. Just make sure it's not still pink on the inside.

  3. This looks fantastic Cathy!!! I am not much for wings but I'm going to try this on chicken breasts instead. Thank you!
