These honey soy baked wings have a great balance of savory + sweet; each bite has the perfect amount of crispiness. I can eat wings just fine without side dishes, but this recipe goes well with steamed rice and lightly steamed veggies.

Most folks think you can achieve the ideal crispiness by frying the wings, but think again! Baked wings can give you the dreamiest, crispiest wings you’ve ever wanted. The pairing of ginger + garlic + honey + soy sauce is a wonderful combination of flavors.

Some folks cook their wings directly on a sheet pan. I prefer to use a wire rack so that I lose the skin on the pan. If you’re ready for tender, juicy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside, finger lickin’ good wings, peep the recipe below!
