Crispy Baked Orange Chicken Wings

Crispy Baked Orange Chicken Wings on a white plate

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 regular orange chicken, but using wings instead. These were so pretty and bright and they tasted delicious.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I decided to host a Lunar New Year party. It was a little tiring cooking for so many people and being a food blogger, I definitely felt some pressure. But it was so much fun to spend the time with my friends and catch up. I’ll share some of the photos of the dishes I made later this week.

I spent most of Monday resting and definitely not cooking. I really love three day weekends. I feel so recharged after. I wish we could have them once a month instead of just a few times a year.

These wings are perfect for your next party. They make such a delicious appetizer and the prep work is pretty easy too. If you like this recipe you might like my Korean Style Grilled Chicken Wings, too.

These orange chicken wings are just like regular orange chicken but served up as an appetizer instead. They're great for parties and entertaining!

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 lb party chicken wings
  • chopped scallions  optional garnish

for the glaze

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • 1/8 cup light soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp ginger minced
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat wings dry with paper towel and then lay them on a baking sheet. Place into oven and roast for about 40-50 minutes or until the skins of the wings reach desired crispness.

  2. When chicken is about 10 minutes from finished, make the sauce on the stove. Add all sauce ingredients except the cornstarch + 2 tbsp water. Bring to a simmer, stirring in between. In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in water, then add to the mixture. Stir until sauce becomes thick (should take less than 1 minute). Brush finished wings with glaze. Garnish with scallions if desired.

  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.
