Soy Sauce Wings - Finger Licking Good!

Chicken wings are reduced in a soy-sauce with maple syrup and garlic - until they become very sticky. Pack some napkins!
Course: Easy
Servings: 2 people


  • Chicken wings - 10-15
  • Cooking wine - 1 Tablespoon
  • Salt - ¼ teaspoon
  • Black pepper - few shakes

Sticky Marinade

  • Soy sauce - 3 Tablespoons
  • Maple syrup - 2 Tablespoons
  • Cooking wine - 2 Tablespoons
  • Minced garlic - 1 Tablespoon


Season Wings

  • Place chicken wings in a mixing bowl. Pour cooking wine over wings and gently toss the wings.
  • Season both sides of the wings with the herb salt and black pepper. Let it sit for 10 minutes.

Make Marinade

  • Mix all of the listed ingredients for the marinade in a separate bowl.

Cook Wings

  • Place frying pan on medium heat and put in some olive oil. Once it turns hot, place wings in.
  • Get a nice sear on both sides of the wings (approx. 2 minutes per side).
  • Then pour the marinade in. Marinade will begin to reduce and cook the wings. Flip the chicken wings as sauce reduces.
  • Once the sauce becomes very sticky (syrupy), they are ready to be eaten.


  • When searing the chicken, keep the frying pan on a medium (or medium-low) heat. If you have it on a high heat, the wings will burn very quickly. If you are using frozen wings, let it thaw in ½ cup of milk. Rinse off the milk and then season as instructed below.
