Calories 550 kcal


  • 1/2 cup sesame ginger marinade
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 t. sambal oelek or chili garlic paste
  • 1 t. red pepper flakes
  • 1.5 lb. frozen chicken wings approx. 16
  • carrots, celery, and bleu cheese dressing (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Whisk together everything but the chicken wings. Taste & adjust – it will be very strong.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Use the smallest sheet you have that will fit the wings in a single layer.
  • Arrange the wings bone-down on the sheet. Brush the tops with sauce.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, until the sauce has thickened. Turn wings over, brush the bottoms, and return to the oven.
  • Repeat turning and brushing every fifteen minutes.
  • The wings are done when the sauce has caramelized and thickly coats the meat, usually around an hour.


If your wings aren’t frozen, even better – this will reduce the cooking time, so lower the turn/brush frequency to 10 minutes.
