These easy and flavorful Baked Sweet N Spicy Chicken Wings are so tender and mouth watering! Three easy steps, marinate, bake, glaze and they’re ready to serve! YUM!
The hardest, and ironically, the easiest part about making Baked Sweet n Spicy Chicken Wings is that they need to marinate for 6-8 hours before they are baked. Even though there is a wait involved, the flavor of these outstanding wings is SO worth it!
The marinade is easy to put together in a short amount of time. That being said, this dish would fit right in to a day with a busy schedule. Make the marinade and add to a seal able bag (or container) along with the chicken. Place in the refrigerator while you take care of your day’s ‘to-do’ list. Then bake the wings when you get home!
Here’s how to make the marinade:
Combine orange juice, soy and teriyaki sauce along with canola and Worcestershire sauce –
Whisk these ingredients together; then add the dry spices.
Cayenne pepper, coarsely ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, and onion powder helps to give Baked Sweet n Spicy Chicken Wings their flavorful kick!
Next, add the brown sugar and minced garlic; whisk to combine.
Then add the chicken wings to a seal able plastic bag or container; place in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours and let them marinate!
When it’s time to bake the wings, place them in a single layer on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper (to prevent sticking). You could actually grill these yummy wings instead, if you choose.
While the Baked Sweet N Spicy Chicken Wings are baking, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze in a medium sauce pan. Bring the glaze to a boil and continue to whisk until it thickens. Remove from heat and set aside until wings have baked for 45 minutes.
Remove wings from oven. Turn each wing and baste with Baked Sweet N Spicy Chicken Wings Glaze. Return wings to the oven for 15 minutes. Then repeat basting process on the other side of wings. Bake for an additional 15 minutes. ** Note – Make sure that the wings reach an internal temperature of at least 165’F using a meat thermometer. And they’re ready to serve!!
