Game Day Indonesian Chicken Wings Final

Sundays are special.

Sundays are made for laziness. It’s not the day to make big, extravagant meals that require lots of dirty dishes. Let these Indonesian chicken wings be your breezy Sunday saviors.

We’re talking about an ooohh and an ahhh, smoke and mirrors, rabbits being pulled out of a hat, and a disappearing assistant! Super quick, super easy, with less dishes to clean than the fingers on one hand!

Here’s the game plan (get it? Okay, sorry!): tossing ingredients into a saucepan, placing wings on a baking rack and putting that in the oven, pouring the sauce over the wings, sprinkling with sesame seeds and scallions and BAM! An explosion of exotic flavors in every bite!

This recipe will leave you enough time to throw on your spirit gear and slather on a coat of shiny gloss just before the door bell rings!

Sundays are made to be easy.

Lets let super flavorful, crowd pleasing, wings be that way too!

Super crispy oven baked chicken wings drenched in Indonesian Style sauce. Full of flavor.


  • 2 and 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup honey (clover or wildflower works best)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Golden Mountain Sauce (similar to soy sauce, found at most Asian supermarkets)
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 and 1/2 inch piece ginger, grated
  • 3 cloves (1 tablespoon) minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal


  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Place the rack/s near the center of the oven.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk together the honey, light brown sugar, soy sauce, Golden Mountain Sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and is reduced by half. About 20 - 25 minutes. You should have about 2/3 cup of sauce. Pour sauce into a large bowl.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and place a baking rack inside. Arrange the chicken wings in a single layer. Bake until golden, and cooked through. About 35 minutes. Using tongs transfer wings to sauce bowl. Toss wings in sauce and coat for about 5 minutes. Place the wings back on the baking rack and bake for another 2 - 3 minutes. Toss wings again in the sauce. To serve, sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions.
