Honey Garlic Chicken Wing Recipe: these delicious and inexpensive chicken wings only have 6 ingredients making them easy to make.
This honey garlic chicken wing recipe is an old favourite. I have great memories of my dad making it for dinner for our whole family as a kid. He used to use an electric frying pan…is that even still a thing? And I remember the chicken wings being sweet and sticky and delicious.
I don’t think my dad has made these since way back when, but I have made them lots. They’re easy and inexpensive to make and always a hit at a party or get together. Add them to your appetizer night, and everyone will love them. They are also amazing with homemade pizza for a pizza and wings night. They’re pretty much delicious anytime really.

- In a large frying pan with a lid, combine the honey, soy sauce, water, sugar, onion and garlic and stir to combine. Add the chicken pieces in and stir to coat.

When you are making these remember that the sauce will thicken more as it cools a bit, so remove it from the heat a little before it gets to the exact consistency you want.
We used a dark soy sauce for the batch we took these photos of. They were delicious. Normally I use a regular soy sauce and they’re a little bit lighter in colour. Either way is super yummy though.
With homemade honey garlic chicken wings, life really is a party!
