This tasty chicken wings recipe has a mildly spicy Asian-inspired accent. Serve them at your game-time gathering and there will be “high fives” all around!

Why Try? These make a nice alternative to the usual Buffalo wings.

These are really best when baked until crispy.


  • 16 chicken wings
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • Salt to taste (optional)
  • 2 limes, quartered


  • 1 Whisk together garlic, green onion, sugar, five-spice powder, fish sauce, soy sauce, chili sauce, and salt in a bowl.
  • 2 Arrange the chicken pieces in a shallow, non-metallic dish. Spoon the sauce over the chicken to evenly coat. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • 3 Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • 4 Lightly grease the baking sheet and arrange the marinated chicken on it.
  • 5 Bake until crispy, about 45 minutes. Garnish with lime wedges.
