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.

Foodie Byte: These are really best when baked until crispy.


  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.
