With Lunar New Year approaching, I thought I’d do an Asian-themed recipe week, starting with these orange chicken wings. Crispy baked wings are glazed with a sticky orange sauce.

It’s basically like a regular orange chicken recipe but using wings instead. These were so pretty and bright, and they tasted delicious.


  • Chicken wings
  • Chopped scallions or green onions
  • Orange juice
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vinegar
  • Light soy sauce
  • Minced garlic cloves
  • Minced ginger
  • Sriracha or a few pinches of red pepper flakes – increase the amount if you want spice orange chicken wings.
  • Cornstarch

How to Make Baked Chicken Wings with Orange Sauce

Pat the wings try and lay them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake them for about 40 to 50 minutes at 400°F or until they are cooked through (165°F), and the skin is crispy.

About 10 minutes before the wings are done, make the sauce. Combine the orange juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sriracha in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with water. Add this mixture to the sauce and stir until the sauce is thickened. This should only take about a minute.

Brush the orange glaze on the baked wings. Place them on a plate and sprinkle the scallions over the top for garnish.

Storage Tips

I think these wings are best when they are made. The sauce will soften the crispy skin when they are refrigerated.

If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I recommend reheating them in an air fryer or in the oven.

  1. I’ve never baked chicken wings ‘naked’ before. Does the skin turn out pretty crispy? I used to deep fry naked wings but it’s a total hassle (& mess) so wondering if the  baking method can produce same crispy skin that I love.

    • yes, it is definitely crispy when you bake it! just bake it long enough until it’s crispy, which is usually around 40 minutes for me.
