For the Wings

  • 4 pounds of chicken wings, cut into wingettes and drumettes
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

For the Sauce

  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • Sesame seeds and sliced scallions for garnishing (optional)


For The Sauce

  • In a small pot over medium heat add all the sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil and lower the heat. Simmer for about 12-15 minutes or until syrupy.

For the Wings

  • Set one oven rack at the lower-middle part of the oven and one other rack at the top-middle part.
  • Pat dry your chicken wings with paper towels OR if you have time place your chicken wings uncovered in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay a cooling rack or baking rack on top. Spray the rack with cooking spray.
  • Place the wings in a big mixing bowl or a reseal-able plastic bag and add baking powder
  • Shake off any excess baking powder and place the wings on the prepared baking sheet skin side up. The wings will shrink a little so don't be afraid to fit them snugly.
  • Bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit on the lower-middle oven rack for 30 minutes.
  • Move the wings to the upper-middle rack and increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes turning the wings once during the cooking time.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and let the wings rest for 5 minutes.
  • Toss the wings with the sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced scallions (optional)


Make sure you use baking powder and NOT baking soda for this recipe. You can add 3/4 teaspoon of salt + 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper + 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder to the baking powder if you want to serve the wings with a different sauce.
