  • 4 lbs chicken wings (see notes)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • green shallots/spring onions finely sliced for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 200°C/ 400°F
  • In a large zip lock plastic bag pour honey, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and garlic powder. Stir gently to mix.
  • Add chicken wings. Seal bag. Then massage wings working the marinade in.
  • Allow to marinate 30 minutes/1 hour in the refrigerator
  • Line two large deep baking pans with non stick paper.
  • Take the bag of chicken out of the refrigerator.
  • Arrange chicken wings in lined baking pan leaving behind the marinade.
  • Place chicken wings into preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes
  • As soon as you place the chicken in the oven to bake, pour the marinade into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Watch carefully as it tends to boil over if the heat is too high. Continue to simmer until reduced to 1 1/2 cups.
  • After 20 minutes, turn the chicken wings over and return to the oven for another 20 minutes.
  • Now the marinade should be sufficiently reduced. Pour half into pan and turn the wings over to coat in the sauce.
  • Return to the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Arrange wings on a serving plate. Garnish with green shallots/spring onions, if desired.
  • Pour over some of the sauce. Serve the remaining sauce separately.


I like to use chicken wings that have been separated at the joints. Sometimes called chicken splits or chicken nibbles.
