Author Notes: I've been making these wings for over thirty years. Once you take them to a party, you will be taking them to parties forever. You will begin to wonder if it's you or the wings that are invited. Don't worry if it seems like there are too many. I've never had leftovers, no matter if it's a party of eight or eighteen. Most grocery stores sell bags of frozen wings, already cut up, which also makes this the easiest party food you've ever made. Do not skip the lining the sheet pan in foil step unless you want to throw away your sheet pan. MrsWheelbarrow

Serves a crowd

  • 6 pounds chicken wings
  • 1/4 cup fermented black beans
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2/3 cup hoisin
  • 1/4 cup horseradish
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  1. Trim wings into three pieces. Reserve the wing tips for stock.
  2. Combine all the other ingredients, stir well, add the chicken and marinate overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 400•. Line a baking sheet with foil. Arrange the wings in a single layer.
  4. Bake the wings, basting and flipping them about halfway through. Cook a total of 45 minutes. Taste a wing when they come out of the oven, because they'll go so fast you won't get one otherwise.

Just pulled these out of the oven for the game tonight and after trying *five* I know never make another wing recipe. They are so freaking good.

These wings were amazing! Made two batches for a holiday cocktail party and they were gone in a heartbeat. I followed the advice of reserving one or two for the cook. :)

These wings are great! I made them for a party last night (my first time making wings) and they were a huge success! I did two batches, one that I marinated for almost 2 days and the second just over night. The longer you can marinate the better! I was also lazy to trim them so I had to cook a little longer. Awesome recipe!

So glad you liked them. I've made them for ages, they're always a hit, and you're right - the more marinating the better!

This looks like one of those dishes that should feed a dozen, but that 2-3 wing aficionados could plow through easily. Ever notice that when you are eating really good wings, you start with plans for 1 or 2, and before you know it there's a 30 gallon trash bin of bones at your feet....oooops. I'll have my big bucket handy before I make these lovelies.

Thanks, OuiChef. You are so right. I really do hold back a few wings before carrying out a platter.. You've got to be quick with these wings or they're gone.

My mom always made these (sans black beans unless she made it to an Asian market or raided the kitchen of a family friend). Love, love, love these!

I used to call these "clean the fridge wings" but decided to rename them for Food52!

My boyfriend has been bugging me to make wings - and I have the ingredients for everything. Execpt, the fermented black beens. Could I use mashed black beans? Or do they have be fermented? Where can I find? Thanks and awesome recipe!!

You can use the Chinese black bean and garlic sauce that's sold in most grocery stores, just cut back on the garlic added (or not -depends how you feel about garlic.) Let me know what you think!

What an original way to do wings (such a departure from the typical barbeque sauce)...I am definitely going to give these a try!
