Wait until you sink your teeth into these wings! They are sweet, salty, spicy, gooey... they have every flavor element you could ever want. These are little jewels to be sure.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you're tired of the same old chicken wings, give these a try. They're different and delicious. Slightly sweet and sticky, these wings are loaded with flavor. The Asian accents are there but not overwhelming. These baked chicken wings do have a little kick, but they're not too hot. A nice addition to your game day snacking.

How to Make Exotic Five Spice Chicken Wings


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  3. Prepare the wings by snipping the tip off the wing. Spread the wings out on a baking dish.
  4. Add all of the other ingredients to a bowl and whisk briskly to incorporate all of the ingredients.
  5. Baste all of the pieces of chicken with sauce.
  6. Bake in oven 45-60 minutes, making sure to baste about every 15 minutes.
  7. Flip wings over during the last 15 minutes of baking and baste again. Bake for the last 15 minutes.
  8. Serve with any kind of dipping sauce you like. I always use "Three Cheese Ranch"... but it's up to you!
