OVEN-Baked Sweet and Spicy BBQ Wings Recipe


I remember eating oven-baked BBQ wings for brunch in a little diner in Leicester and feeling wonder-struck by the moistness of the chicken, which came away from the bone with very little persuasion. Initially the sweet, saucy, gooey flavour/texture dominated, thereafter the tingling of the chilli kicked in. My taste buds were dancing to the tunes of the honeyed sweet chilli treats. I was hooked!!! Time to experiment at home… What did you expect? I am the HaloodieFoodie! This is a really simple recipe that, once marinated, is really easy to whip up after work. It’s also loved by kids as well as adults so a good choice for families.

Chicken Wings marinade

-10 whole Chicken Wings with (I prefer them with the skin left on) – 1 teaspoon Garlic paste – 1 teaspoon Ginger paste – ½ teaspoon Chilli paste – ½ teaspoon Dried Red chillies – Salt and Pepper to taste – 1 large spoon Olive Oil After cleaning the wings. Make small incisions on wings and marinate for an hour or preferably overnight. Place in a oven tray and bake on gas mark 6 until 80% cooked. (around 45mins depending on the size of your wings).


Hot and Sweet glaze.

Combine the following ingredients and bring to a boil. Then reduce for a few minutes, until you get the consistency of double cream. Ingredients: – ½ cup Tomato Ketchup – ½ cup water – ⅓ cup strong vinegar – ½Teaspoon Garlic paste – 1 Teaspoon Ginger paste – ½ Teaspoon Chilli paste – ½ teaspoon Dried Red chillies – 1 Teaspoon Chilli powder – 1 Teaspoon Smoked paprika powder -2 Teaspoon Dark Muscovado Sugar – 1 Teaspoon Runny honey – 1 Star anise (You could use Chinese Five Spice mix). -Splash of Good quality Soya Sauce (I use Kikkoman) -Salt and Pepper to taste


Cover the chicken with the glaze and cook for a further 20 mins.


Turn over to brown on both sides.

You may want to put under the grill to ensure even browning.

Garnish with freshly chopped Spring onions. Serve with freshly salted thick potato chips and a side salad.

Hot and Sweet wings on the BBQ

There is nothing more delightful than dining Al-fresco. These chicken wings serve as a moreish appetizer. The recipe is similar to the oven-baked version. if you are cooking over hot coals or over a gas grill. Ensure that the grill is at an optimum temperature (the coal has a white covering of ash). Cook the marinated wings until the juices run clear. Then simply brush a liberal coating of the glaze and cook on each side for a few minutes. Pleasedo not overcook the chicken, dry BBQ chicken is criminal! Asian cooks usually remove the skin from the chicken. However, the chicken skins seals in the moisture and the meat remains juicy.


You could use the recipe for chicken legs and whole chicken, I’ve even used the recipe on Beef T-Bone steaks and lamb chops.

    Tasty looking recipe. In sha allah will need to try it out.
    I just wanted to clarify is Kikkoman soya sauce halal? I bought some but later read somewhere that it contains alcohol.

    • haloodiefoodie July 5, 2015 at 10:11 am #

      The Kikkoman soya sauce doesn’t have any added alcohol, however, my understanding its that as it ferments naturally a small percentage alcohol is produced. Which is the similar to that found in fruits, bread and vinegar… This alcohol is not produced by dates or grapes, so thus it would be halal.
      But its better to ask the ulema, and Allah knows best.
