  • 3-4 lb chicken wings fresh or frozen


  • 1 cup brown sugar dark brown preferred
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar white may be substituted
  • 1/4 tspp ground ginger
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 clove garlic crushed


  • You can leave fresh wings whole or cut them up at the joint. Don't discard tips if you do cut them up; save them for making stock. Frozen wing portions must be defrosted.
  • Pat wings dry with paper towels and rub with seasoning rub.
  • Cook wings in the way you prefer--bake, deep fry or use the slow cooker. For approximate times for each method, see NOTES.
  • Meanwhile, to make sauce, place all sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan; stir well to combine.
  • Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Then reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced 50%--it should look like a thin syrup when it's done. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  • Place cooked wings in a large bowl, add the sauce and toss to coat.


Seasoning Rub: 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp pepper. Stir to combine. You can make this in bulk if you wish.
Cooking Methods:
Bake at 375 degrees F about 45 minutes. Make sure to spray the baking sheet because wings stick. I always use a sheet of non-stick parchment and spray that too
Deep Fry for about 8 minutes; drain.
Slow Cook Cook on high approximately 5 hours. Drain ALL liquid from crock, add sauce and toss to coat (your cooker may cook differently. This is the time and temp I use so your times may vary)
