Recipe: Chili Crisp Honey Glazed Wings

  • Author: Jess Pryles
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Yield: serves 2-4 1x



2 lb chicken wings, flats and drumettes

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

4 teaspoons baking powder (NOT soda)

1/3 cup honey

2 tablespoons corn syrup

2.5 tablespoons chili crisp

1 tablespoon soy sauce


  1. Preheat an oven to 250f.
  2. Pat the wings VERY dry with a paper towel. This step is crucial to achieving a crunchy wing. Place the well dried wings into a bowl or bag, then add the salt and baking powder, and shake until well coated.
  3. Line a sheet pan with foil to catch any mess, then place a rack on top of the foil. Lay the ‘powdered’ wings on the rack, then bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Increase the oven temperature to 415f, and bake a further 40 minutes. It’s also helpful to move the wings to a rack at the top of the oven for this stage, if possible.
  5. Remove the wings from the oven, and allow to cool 5-7 minutes. As the wings cool they will also become crispier. Letting the wings cool a little also makes it easier to get a good coat from the glaze.
  6. While the wings cool, combine the honey, corn syrup, chili crisp and soy in a small saucepan. Heat briefly for 1 minute, stirring the ingredients together. The idea is to loosen the mixture a little, but not make it too runny.
  7. Use tongs to place the wings into a large bowl. Pour the glaze over, then toss to coat well. Pour onto a plate, scraping out any extra sauce left behind in the bowl, then serve immediately.
