Honey Sesame Grilled Chicken Wings

Honey Sesame Grilled Chicken Wings


1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tbsp minced ginger

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tbsp Asian chili paste

1 kg chicken wings, tips removed, cut apart at joint

1/2 cup honey

1 1/2 teaspoons hoisin sauce

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 green onion, trimmed and chopped


In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and chili paste. Add chicken and let marinate for 15 minutes, stirring often.

Put chicken on medium heated grill and cover. Cook, turning often, until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine honey and hoisin sauce. Using a pastry brush, generously baste chicken wings with honey glaze. Cover grill with lid and cook till honey glaze starts to caramelize, about 3 minutes. Turn chicken wings over and baste again, using the remaining honey glaze. Cook for 3 minutes more, being careful not to let the glaze burn, removing pieces from the grill as they’re done.

Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve any remaining honey glaze on the side.
