Sticky Chicken Wings - Secret Recipe Club

When I received my Secret Recipe Club blog assignment for the month, I immediately checked out her blog. Lavender and Lime is a lovely blog and one I have browsed on several occasions before! There's a lot going on here at Little Bit of Everything, so I needed a recipe I could make quickly and have ready in plenty of time for today's posting date.

It's football season and a few Sunday's ago there was a game between my KC Chiefs and Tim's Minnesota Vikings. Neither one of these teams had won a game yet this year, so this was a big event in more than one way. What foods do you think of when you hear football? Chicken Wings, Nachos and Dip are the first that come to my mind. I found a recipe for Sticky Chicken Wings on Tandy's blog. Perfect! Normally I make these wings, much more spicy than sticky.

I cooked these in the oven for about 30 minutes and then finished them on the grill. Tim enjoyed the wings a lot more than the outcome of the game. KC Chiefs 22 - Minnesota Vikings 17.



8 chicken wings

juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon crushed ginger

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon honey

½ teaspoon wasabi sauce

1 teaspoon crushed garlic


preheat the oven to 180°Celsius

make a marinade out of the lime, soy, ginger, oil, honey, wasabi and garlic

massage the marinade into the chicken and leave to marinade for 20 minutes

place the chicken and the marinade into an oven proof dish

season and cook for 25 minutes

grill for a further 2 minutes

Note: I grilled these for about 20 minutes. I didn't find these to be done after 20 minutes in the oven.


  1. Oooh, my husband would love these! I make some sticky wings but I've never thought to try them on the grill. Might have to do this next weekend! :)

  2. Oh YUM...I used to make wings like this and had forgotten, caught up in buffalo type wings. I'm making these next time!!! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Julie, these wings look good, I think I'd like mine spicy too. I tried out (with a couple of changes) your version of "World's Best French Toast". It was fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Thank you so much for making such a great dish from my blog - yours look great :)

  5. Hi Julie,
    These Sticky Chicken Wings look like they would be a big hit here at the Cottage. Thanks for sharing and it is fun cooking with you in the SRC!

  6. Hubby ordered wings at a restaurant recently and devoured them - this will be a great recipe to make for him at home.

    Great SRC pick! Hope you'll stop by and see my Mocha Snow Caps.


  7. They must pack a little kick with the wasabi. Works for me! I love the grilled finish on these.

  8. Looking for some chicken recipes right now! I bought some chicken and need to do something with it! :-)

    Thanks for being a part of GROUP B: come by and see my frozen breakfast burritos from today's SRC Post.

  9. Ooooh Julie, I'm making these for the BSU game this coming weekend. They will be a huge it with my boys. Pssst, I will them longer too for flavor and crispness. Thanks for a fun recipe.

    So glad you are all moved and almost settled. You're amazing and I'd like some of you energy at my place. Was this move planned or a surprise or what? I'm so excited to hear about your new home. xoxo

  10. That was supposed to be, "I will GRILL them longer too....!" sorry

  11. The wings look and sound amazing and finishing them on the grill is such a great idea.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my group "A" SRC recipe this month: Levain Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies.

  15. Mmmm...those sticky wings look awesome! I especially love the touch of wasabi, and the fact that the wings get a good char on the grill!
