READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Smilyn

This is great for an appetizer! We also like it for lunch. BECAREFUL not to over-cook these: They will burn and taste horrible.

I had to try this recipe!When I did, I substituted some of the ingredients, like veg. oil for the olive,and I also added 1/2tsp. of paprika, directly to the pan, not the wings, which gave them a beautiful coloring and added sweetness. I would love to make some boneless chicken breasts in the same way, to see how it would turn out, probably delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and dry chicken.
  2. Place wings in shallow dish and pour over the soy sauce, ginger, cilantro, garlic, and lemon juice.
  3. Toss well to coat; marinate, refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Remove wings from marinade and pat dry.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. In a large saute pan over medium to medium-high heat, melt the butter in olive oil.
  7. When the butter stops foaming, add honey and chicken wings and fry until browned on each side, about 5 minutes.
  8. Continue cooking wings, turning them over often to coat them as the glaze reduces.
  9. Cook until the wings are sticky and cooked through.
  10. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
  11. DO NOT OVER COOK-- the glaze will burn and taste nasty!
