How Can I deep-fry Garlic Soy chicken wings?
If you don’t want to bake your chicken wings, you can also pan-fry them instead! Heat up some vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, once hot, add the chicken wings in batches so that they aren’t overcrowded.
Fry until golden brown on both sides; the approximate cooking time is 8 – 10 minutes per batch depending on the size of the pieces being fried.
Once cooked through, remove from the heat immediately and drain off excess fat using paper towels. For a more deep guide check out How to Make Deep Fried Chicken.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THESE SUPER BOWL CHICKEN WINGS MARINADES
- For extra crispy skin on your chicken wings, try broiling them briefly after they have finished baking. Set broiler to high, place baking sheet with wings onto the upper rack, and broil for 2 – 3 minutes until skin is crispier but not burned. Keep an eye on them while they’re under the broiler as times can vary depending on how close the rack is located.
- To add extra flavor, try adding some additional seasonings such as chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, or coriander. These spices will work well with this particular marinade recipe. Just be sure not to add too much salt as soy sauce already contains plenty!
- Make sure to serve these sticky soy and garlic chicken wings with plenty of napkins, as they will be quite messy. With this delicious marinade, you’ll be sure to have the best Super Bowl night feast ever! Enjoy!

Sticky Soy And Garlic Chicken Wing Marinade
- 2 pounds chicken wings
- ¼ cup dark soy sauce
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil (I prefer olive oil)
- 2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, washed, dried, and chopped
- 1 tsp black sesame seeds
Sticky Soy And Garlic Chicken Wing Marinade
- Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towel and double-check that they are clean. Set them aside so they can come up to room temperature.
- Meanwhile, whisk together the soy sauce, maple syrup, chopped garlic, grated ginger, and vegetable oil. Use a large bowl!
- Then, add the chicken wings to the soy sauce mixture. Toss the ingredients together so that all the wings are coated evenly and well.
- Remove the coated wings from the marinade and place them on a lined roasting tray in a single layer. Do not let them overlap. That will cause them to cook unevenly and not crisp up on all sides. You can set aside the leftover marinade for later use.
- Leave the wings to bake for roughly 15-20 minutes.
- Then, remove them from the oven. Pour over the remaining marinade (that you reserved earlier).
- Add the chicken wings back into the oven and leave them to cook for another 5 minutes.
- If you'd like, you can switch on the grill element and finish them off for a minute or two. This will help that top layer caramelize. But be careful not to burn the meat!
- Serve the wings immediately with some freshly chopped coriander leaves and black sesame seeds.
