It’s unofficially summer, and it marks the start of my favorite time of year (check out my summer recipes).
Coming from the tropical island of Penang in Malaysia, I love the warmth of sun, more importantly, I love summer parties, BBQ cookouts, beaches, ice cream, shaved iced, sundresses, sandals, and so much more. Summer is indeed a happy season!
To celebrate summer, I made these amazing Asian BBQ wings, which is an excellent BBQ wings recipe to add to your summer grilling and BBQ repertoire.
These Asian BBQ wings are pre-marinated with ginger, garlic, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and five-spice powder. The wings are always a hit whenever I have summer parties.
They are always the first ones to go. They are excellent hot off the grill, and great with a dash or two of your favorite chili sauce.
For the wings, I recommend party wings, which you can get from the frozen section of all supermarkets.
Party wings are usually smaller and they are perfect for this recipe. I am not sure about you, I am always skeptical about those super-sized chicken wings that look like turkey wings than chicken wings.
Costco is also another great place to load up a bunch of party wings. Try this amazing Asian BBQ wings recipe and I am sure you will be making them again and again!

Asian BBQ Wings - Amazing chicken wings marinated with ginger, garlic, soy sauce and honey. Easy recipe you must try in summer!
- 2 lbs. chicken wings mid section and drummettes
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/3 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 clove garlic peeled and chopped
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

Rinse the chicken wings with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
Get a big bowl, marinate the chicken wings with all the ingredients. Mix to make sure the wings are nicely coated with the seasonings.
Cover up the bowl and put in the fridge overnight.
Fire the grill the next day. Grill the wings until they turn golden brown and nicely charred on both sides. Serve immediately.
While grilling, brush a little bit of oil on the surface. You might also brush a little bit honey water (mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 3 tablespoons of water) on the wings while grilling.
These are perfect when you’re looking for a bit of Asian flavour. Whole family including kids devour them at our outings
Every year, for July 4th, I must make these wings. Fast, easy, and favorite amongst everyone. Fool proof – try it now, you won’t regret it.
Ooh, I love chicken wings, especially saucy ones! The asian twist on these is calling my name!
Too cold for a bbq where I live, but I made these excellent wings in the oven. There’s no real need to eat them with chili sauce or any other sauce, since these wings are very flavourful by themselves.
My score: 5 out of 5.
Yay, thanks for trying my recipe!!!
