Recipe by Cliff Treend

These very sticky wings have been a favorite since childhood, when my mom would fix up a batch of these with a side of macaroni & cheese and a green salad. Now, my kids always ask for Oma's Sticky Wings.

A few nights ago, I was craving some hot wings but since my son is just a baby, I needed another chicken recipe that wasn't spicy. I remembered my mom making some sweet chicken wings when I was younger. This recipe was pretty similar! I added some sesame seeds on to the wings. My son seemed to really like them. I tried some too and they were pretty similar to what my mom's. I used your sauce combo...but I used a different way of making the wings. Instead of putting the wings in lukewarm water, I boiled water and cooked them for 10-12 minutes. I then coated them lightly in flour and put it in a deep frier, then tossed the chicken and sauce together. YUM! =)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place wings (frozen or thawed) into pan of lukewarm water for 30 minutes, changing water every 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Remove wings from water and pat dry.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Place wings on single layer on broiling rack, and bake for 30 minutes, turning once.
  5. While chicken is cooking, create glaze by combining sugar, cornstarch, salt, ginger, and lemon pepper in a medium saucepan, and mix well.
  6. Add water, lemon juice, and soy sauce to sugar mixture stirring until well blended.
  7. Heat glaze mixture slowly, stirring occasionally, until sauce begins thickening. Once thickening starts, stir constantly until fully thickened.
  8. Once wings have finished cooking for the first 30 minutes, remove from oven and dip each wing in glaze, coating well.
  9. Return wings to oven, and an additional 30 to 40 minutes until done.
