  • 4 green onions
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons all spice
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice
  • 7 pounds chicken wings


  1. Chop green onions.
  2. Mix all ingredients except the chicken wings. Set aside 3/4 cup of marinade.
  3. Place chicken wings into a container, or large re-sealable plastic bag. Pour the extra marinade over wings. 
  4. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours. 
  5. Preheat oven to 350° F. 
  6. Place chicken wings on a baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes. 
  7. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, bring reserved 3/4 cup marinade to a boil. Reduce by 1/3 until it thickens slightly to a glaze (approximately 10 minutes).
  8. After 20 minutes remove chicken from the oven, and brush wings with the glaze.
  9. Raise oven temperature to 400° F and cook chicken wings about another 20 minutes, until done. 

Helpful hints

  • Seven pounds whole chicken wings yields about 36 wings.
  • Chicken wing drummettes or boneless chicken pieces may be substituted for whole chicken wings. Adjust cooking time to avoid overcooking.
