  • 3-4 lbs chicken wings cut into drums & flats with tip removed
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • oil for spraying


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce low sodium preferred
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 4 tbs unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tbs Sriracha
  • 2 tbs tomato paste
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger grated


  • For air fryer--dust wings with the cornstarch.
  • Place in a single layer in the air fryer basket (you may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your fryer). Spray with some oil.
  • Air fry at 360 degrees F for 13 minutes; turn and air fry at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes. Times may vary by the power of your fryer. Mines is 1800W.
  • If you fry in batches, keep the cooked wings in a 200 degrees F oven to stay hot.
  • For oven--line a baking sheet with parchment or foil. Spray the wings with oil and bake at 400F/200 C for approximately 30 minutes.
  • For deep fryer--fry for 8 minutes at 350F/180C
  • To make sauce--place all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sauce becomes slightly syrupy. It should coat a wooden spoon. This should take about 8-10 minutes. It's a good idea to make the sauce first if you're deep frying and while the wings are cooking if you'r air frying or baking.
  • Place the warm wings in a large bowl and add the sauce. Toss until colated.
