Watch how to make this recipe

Place a 6-quart saucepan with a steamer basket and 1 inch of water in the bottom, over high heat, cover and bring to a boil.

Remove the tips of the wings and discard or save for making stock. Using kitchen shears, or a knife, separate the wings at the joint. Place the wings into the steamer basket, cover, reduce the heat to medium and steam for 10 minutes. Remove the wings from the basket and carefully pat dry. Lay the wings out on a cooling rack set in a half sheet pan lined with paper towels and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Replace the paper towels with parchment paper. Roast on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and cook another 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through and the skin is golden brown.

During the last 20 minutes of cooking the chicken, place the orange juice concentrate, hoisin sauce, honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and red pepper flakes into a small saucepan, stir to combine and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the mixture to about 1/2 cup, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool at least 5 minutes.

Remove the wings from the oven and transfer to a large mixing bowl along with the glaze and toss to coat. Serve warm.

Was very good. Orange flavor intensified the the day, was even better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
HORRIBLE. I double checked to make sure I did not make a mistake....nope...absolutely horrible and I love orange flavored .... item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are some of the best wings I've ever made!! I mean the technique for making these is spot on fantastic. I steamed them first and then baked at 425 for 20 minutes, then I turned them over and turned my oven down to 400 and put it on convection. The result? Crispy skin, tender meat. Yummy. I glazed some with an asian type teriyaki glaze and the rest with Franks and butter. Messy prep, but well worth it in delicious wings. Thanks Mr. Brown!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were a hit at a holiday party. Next time though I think I might add some garlic and ginger to the glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was awesome!!! I doubled the recipe (except for the red pepper flakes and it was perfect!! Mild spice. Very tasty!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Alot of work, but some of the best wings I've ever had. Not soggy or greasy at all, just crispy and chickeny. Much better than deep fried. item not reviewed by moderator and published
it is amazing...i made it for a school project, and everyone loved it item not reviewed by moderator and published
This way of cooking wings is way easy and low maintenance. I made these while watching the football game today. Crispy wings and great sauce, try this out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
BEST wings ever. Made them first time last Super Bowl. Everyone loved them!. Have made several times since. Thanx, Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw the chicken wings episode long ago, but remembered thinking the technique for steaming, then roasting was interesting. Today, I followed his advice and made the BEST WINGS EVER! Although I didn't have the ingredients for the sauce, I used a simple bottle brand I had in the fridge. The wings came out juicy and crispy. SO MUCH better than deep fried. Thank you Alton Brown! One of the best cooking methods I will keep with me for a lifetime! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't try the recipe for the sauce but I LOVE the cooking method for the wings. My husband always requests that I cook wings this way. They come out crispy and taste like they've been deep fried without all the extra calories! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Don't know about the sauce, but wanted to comment that his cooking method is perfect. Made wings a la AB several times now and they always turn out great. I followed all the directions and had only a teensy bit of smoke and was so pleased that I didn't have to deep fry them. I always mix up my own sauce with things that sound good or are in my pantry, so I haven't actually used his sauce recipe. Just wanted to say that I think his wing prep and cooking method are awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe, loved the sauce (didn't use frozen concentrate, happened to have a half dozen too many oranges laying around and used their juice). The sauce was very similar to what ya get in a Chinese restaurant for Orange Chicken or General Tso's Chicken. Steamed the chicken in a steel colander that fits in one of our large pots. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One thing I just don't understand- why the one hour in the frig.? I was too hungry to wait for that step and they came out fine. This was a good substitute for using the outdoor BBQ grill due to rain this weekend. Everyone will have their own preference for the sauce, but this bake method works very good. Do it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Way too good. But good luck finding a 6oz FCOJ can! item not reviewed by moderator and published
By far the best wings I've had with less guilt and less mess. These are the only oven wings that come out properly crispy, not rubbery. Love you Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sauce was good, but the orange is almost a little overpowering and could be cut back a little bit. I really loved the method they used for cooking the chicken wings since they came out perfect. While I might not necessarily use the sauce again I think I will always use this recipe for cooking the chicken wings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This method is delicious and makes chicken wings healthier, while not sacrificing all of the crispiness on the outside and tenderness on the inside. I only used 1/2 of the orange juice and I doubled the Hoisin sauce. It was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these tonight for New Year's Eve, and they are outstanding. My husband and I have been married for 26 years, but I thought he would propose all over again after eating these wings. He loved them--so did everyone else. Great recipe! I also made Alton's buffalo wings, which were good, but didn't have the level of flavor these wings have (probably because my hot sauce isn't hot enough). The cooking methods and times are just right. Both sets were crispy outside and tender enough to fall off the bone at the first bite. Yummmmmm. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sauce is simple and has a great flavor and it's nice to have a recipe that bakes them so that i don't have to cool and dispose of so much oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is not a bad recipe, but it had a way to strong of an orange flavor that overpowered the wings. Maybe a quarter of what the recipe calls for of the orange concentrate, more hoison sauce, honey and red pepper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very average in every sense of the word and it didnt blend well for all my efforts.It was probably my cooking ability but alot of fun making; I was not completely satisfied but it was better than other wings Ive had so I will recomend it. Thanx Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I seen the show and decided I wanted to try these Orange Chicken Wings. I made them and took them to my classmates at Refrigeration school. They were a huge hit. One comment I got was from a guy in class from China and he said the sauce tasted very much like a sauce his mother used to make for chicken when he was a boy living in China. He loved them so I gave him the web site for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really easy, big hit with everyone at my Superbowl Party. I made these and Alton Browns Buffalo Wings (HOT) for the Big Game. I received rave reviews for both. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A very interesting and effective way to cook the chicken wings. I thought the glaze was good, but did not rise to the level of greatness. Just had too much orange bite, in my opinion -- but worked well enough with the actual wings. It's a good recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These wings are great! I love the technique, crispy skin with no frying. They go really well with Blue Moon. Mmm MMMMM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these wings for my all girl poker party the other night and they disapeared! Everyone really liked the sauce. The chicken was very crispy on the outside, while the meat was fall off the bone tender. Thanks Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We are wing phanatics. But, my wife and two girls like a sweet virsion and my son and I like it hot. This recipe hits home for all of us. Perfect just the way it is for the ladys, but half the bunch we add some hot sauce to the glaze and WOW. The cooking process is just right every time. Thanks Alton!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
mmm, good. steaming these in batches took some time, but mmm good. based on others advice, i reduced orange juice to 4 oz. i also made the buffalo wings at the same time, and i liked those more. however, some of my guests liked the sweetness & non-spiciness of the orange glaze more. it's a matter of taste. it's nice to offer both at once so all are happy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Although I altered the BBQ sauce to my own liking, the cooking method was the key because I love chicken wings while trying to avoid fried foods, but this cooking method produced an awesome meal. The skin was crisp, the chicken was moist, and the entire portion came off the bone easily. I doubled the batch, and it was gone before the 1st quarter was over. I am considered the Wing King, and my people like these wings more than the local bar's. item not reviewed by moderator and published
hey Alton, thanks for a great recipe!!! Next time I will add less orange juice as it does get little too orangy and add some hot sauce into the glaze to add some kick to it. Otherwise perfect. Good Eats rocks item not reviewed by moderator and published
These wings! The glaze is amazing. Best wings ever! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was quite delecious i must say. I prefer marinading the meat first with a good teriaki marinade to give the wings a flavor all the way through then flash frying the wings in peanut oil to give them a crisp texture. I also added cyanne pepper along with the pepper flakes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These wings are great, and I rated them at 5 stars because with a little tweak they are pretty much the best I've ever made. After making them by the recipe they were good, but the orange flavor was a little to powerful. So I just used 4oz instead of 6, and put some tobasco in for added heat, and they are basically perfect for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I decided to try this recipe because the technique intrigued me. These came out nice and crispy with moist tender meat inside. I will now use this process when making other wings now! I liked the orange glaze, but think I would prefer more spice from ginger and garlic...but that is just a personal preference. item not reviewed by moderator and published
great easy recipe. no frying which i really liked. family is a big fan of hoisin sauce. flavors blended very well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were the best wings I've had. My superbowl family loved them!! So crispy!! no need to marinate! Sauce was great. They gave me the CHEER! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked these a lot. We don't have a good wing place and I'm not one for frying. Too much mess. SO I saw his show and gave this recipe a shot. I didn't have the hoisin sauce, but he told us what's in it so I doctored up prepared Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce with a little extra soy sauce, garlic powder, and sesmae oil. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. They were a little orange-y, but since its in the title, its what I was expecting. I made them the day after the show aired, and I am making them again tonight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found this sauce a little too orange tasting. I would either try cutting back on the orange concentrate or consdier doing what I did the second time. I used pineapple juice instead of orange and used less of it. Also I added about a half of teaspoon each of grated ginger and minced garlic item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cooking method is good, but I found the sauce too sweet for my taste. Would make again, but maybe with the hot sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
