This recipe is a must try! Honestly, this is one of the best wings I’ve ever made! The sauce is made by mixing lemongrass, lime, honey, soy, garlic, and ginger. With all the aromatics used in the recipe, how can it not be delicious?!
I would have added some chilli flakes if not for the kids. It’s great on it’s own or served with rice/noodles. It requires minimal clean up as long as you line your pan with foil. All you need to do is to mix, and bake. That simple! The kids loved it too!

- Preheat oven to 175C.
- In a small bowl, mix lime, lemongrass, soy, honey, ginger, and garlic together.

- Lay your wings on the prepared baking pan.
- Season both sides with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 20 mins.
- Remove from oven, pour sauce over chicken.
- Use tongs to coat both side of chicken with sauce.
- Then bake for another 20 mins.

"Coat chicken with thickened pan sauce before serving."
what is the thickened sauce? Is this the sauce from the oven pan?

Hi Jocelyn, yes. The sauce that you pour over the chicken will thicken and turn sticky when baked. So that's the sauce you want to coat the chicken with before serving.

I’m sure it will work as well.

Sorry I deleted your question by mistake and I can't seem to undo it. 🙁
I simply seasoned both side of the chicken and send it to bake. Didn't leave it to marinate. You can do that step first and let it sit for a while if you want to, but honestly, there is no need for that additional time. 🙂

Hi Sharon, wow… this is very inviting and fingers licking good. I guess I need 6 pieces. :))
I love the lemon grass fragrant scent. Well done and nice click.
Have a wonderful day, regards.

Simply love the ingredients you used! lemongrass, lime, ginger, garlic, yum! Is there any difference using grated as compared to minced? Thanks for this recipe!

Thank you Lyn! The only difference is that you will not get those chunky bits if it is grated. But if you minced it finely it should be fine too. 🙂

Hi, i didnt use oven to bake the wings, instead i used hapoy call pan. Is it because of this, my wings arent brown ?
Sharon Lam14 September, 2015 at 7:51 pm
Hi! Possibly. Others that have tried this recipe worked out fine, if not darker then mine. Some made theirs in an air-fryer instead of oven.
