Crispy oven baked chicken wings coated in a sweet, spicy Asian glaze is a delicious appetizer and perfect for Superbowl snacking.
Crispy. Sticky. Spicy. Chicken wings. These are all some of my favourite words. And they’re all together in one recipe! Hurray!! These Asian crispy baked chicken wings are just so delicious and I might or might not be able to eat the entire batch. And listen, you’re not allowed to judge because these wings are just absolutely addictive.
Making crispy, crunchy baked chicken wings is so easy and much less fussy than frying them. And then obviously they’re healthier but we’re about to cover them in a sticky Asian glaze so let’s not go on about how healthy these are, shall we? The crispiness though is what I love so much about these. They have this roast chicken flavour and then you cover them in that sticky glaze and you have a little flavour bomb just waiting to be devoured.
These baked chicken wings are PERFECT for Superbowl snacking but honestly, they’re pretty great any day of the week. Make them, you won’t be disappointed!
