Honey and Soy Chicken Wings- Spring / Summer BBQ series

I love chicken wings…nono, I love bbq honey and soy chicken wings. In fact, by the time I was 18, my friends and I (all girls) had mastered starting a charcoal fire just so that we could have these tasty morsels at a moment’s notice. With Summer almost coming up, I could not resist having this at a recent BBQ in Sydney. My sister lives in Sydney with her husband and when we get together, there is always a feast. And in this case, the BBQ was fired up, friends were invited and in typical Asian style, we pigged out big time!

When I first came to Australia, I was devastated that chicken wings were not considered part of an Aussie BBQ menu. What is so special about chicken wings? I think it’s because I grew up eating chicken wings in Asia, that I love it. Not all chicken wings are equal , some have a terrible marinade, others, under cooked etc. These chicken wings are finger licking good! Sticky, moist, tender and just the right amount of saltiness and sweetness.

So look out for more BBQ recipes as we share with you more dishes that we absolutely must have during our BBQs. What are your must haves in your BBQ?

Honey and Soy Chicken Wings recipe

2 kg chicken wings

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup white wine

3 cloves minced garlic

1 tbsp ginger


-Mix all the ingredients in a glass bowl and marinate for at least 2 hours (overnight if possible)

-Heat the grill till very hot

-Sear the chicken wings

-Turn the heat down

-Baste chicken wings in marinade and keep turning them on the grill to ensure even cooking

Note that it’s important that you keep turning the chicken wings to ensure that they don’t burn too much. I was a little too enthusiastic with my blazing fire and some parts were a little too scorched. If you want the perfect result with minimal fuss, grill it in the oven at 190°C, fan-forced for around 20-30 mins.

    I don’t like bbq chicken breasts as they dry out too much, but I always love wings! They need to be that tiny bit overdone for the extreeme stickiness and crispy skin to happen though. Yummm…

    Lol, you’re right, it’s a chicken wing signature dish, I actually love another one (Malaysian style with tumeric and lime juice)but honey likes this one alot more.

    Yeah, chicken breast can be a little tricky. The trick too is to get a chicken breast lover to cook it for you, and you’ll never have a dry one. Totally agree, slightly overdone chicken wings are to die for…
