Chicken Wings with Honey and Soy Sauce

I like the glaze that comes from baking these wings at a nice high temperature. As the cooking liquid from the chicken reduces with the sugars in the honey and the umami in the soy sauce, it coats the wings in a burnt, sweet and succulent glaze. This makes an intentionally large quantity for six people, as leftovers are mandatory and always appreciated.

Ingredients

Chicken Wings:

5 pounds chicken wings

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

Kosher salt

Lime wedges, for serving

Yogurt Sauce:

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2 shallot, cut into julienne

1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1/2 lemon, juiced

Kosher salt

Directions

  1. For the chicken wings: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Allow the wings to come to room temperature for 15 minutes. Line a sheet tray with foil.
  3. Toss the wings in the olive oil, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and a healthy pinch of salt in a large bowl. Pour the wings onto your prepared sheet tray and arrange them in a single layer (use 2 sheet trays if necessary). Bake the wings for 30 minutes, then remove them from the oven and carefully flip over.
  4. Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F and cook the wings until golden brown, the meat is falling off the bone and the glaze has reduced to a syrup, about 30 minutes more. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  5. For the yogurt sauce: Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, shallots, parsley, lemon juice and some salt in a small bowl with a rubber spatula and set aside.
  6. After the wings have cooled, toss them with the yogurt sauce in a large bowl. Serve with lime wedges.

Cook’s Note

Play around with the ingredients in the glaze and the yogurt sauce, which can also be served on the side for dipping. Vinegar adds great depth of flavor, and when reduced with honey, makes that irresistible and coveted sweet and sour combination everyone loves.
