Grilled Spicy Soy Chicken Wings

Soy Chicken Wings Recipe


Yields 6 servings


  • 4 lbs. chicken wings
  • 3⁄4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup cooking sherry
  • 1⁄4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground ginger
  • hot sauce, to baste


Place chicken wings on cutting board and cut through the main joint to separate each wing into a drumette and a wingette. Cut off the tip (attached to the wingette) and discard. Add drumettes and wingettes to a container for marinating or to two sealable gallon-sized plastic bags.

Add soy sauce, cooking sherry, ketchup, olive oil, sugar and ground ginger in a bowl and whisk until combined.

Pour marinade into container or evenly into plastic bags, if using. Place container/bags in the refrigerator and let wings marinate for 2-3 hours.

Heat grill to 375°F. Using tongs, place wings on the grill over indirect heat. Discard marinade.

Cook wings for 35-40 minutes, turning them using tongs every 10 minutes or so.

Move wings over direct heat and baste with hot sauce. Turn them over after 2-3 minutes and then baste again. Let them cook for another 2-3 minutes. The wings are fully cooked when the center of the thickest part of a wing reaches 165°F. Once done, remove from grill and serve.
