Chinese Sheet Pan Chicken WIngs

There are some days where I just want to throw stuff on a sheet pan and bake it. These Chinese Sheet Pan chicken wings are just the ticket. Chicken wings are one of life's great pleasures - and these little Chinese morsels deliver on taste bigly! If you're in the game for a simple chicken wings recipe, then the search stops here.

Five-spice, five-minutes... high five!

I love the Chinese flavours in this recipe, especially the wonderful 5-spice powder. A heady mix of cinnamon, cloves, fennel, Sichuan peppercorns and my favourite; star anise! It doesn't get more authentic in Chinese flavour than that! All that's required is a bit of marination. The longer you can leave it, the better - you won't believe how much flavour can permeate the chicken, just by letting science do its thing for 24 hours. Get organised! Get it done in 5 minutes!

Super easy to cook... Holy sheet (pan)!

When you're ready to eat, all that you need to do is tip the wings onto a sheet pan and bake. How is that for convenience?! So there's nothing more to say - if you're looking for the tastiest chicken wings you'll ever taste, then give these a try - they're a delight. While you're at it, pair these simple little morsels with a super easy and quick Chinese Cucumber Salad - a splendid hit of greenery to counterbalance all that meat.

Stuff you'll need

You'll need to make a marinade for the chicken wings that includes ALL the flavour you could dream of. Once it's done its magic, just tip out the wings onto a sheet pan and bake.

For garnish (optional)

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (toasted)
  • 2 spring onion (finely sliced)
  • fresh coriander (chopped)


  • Add all the ingredients (except the garnishes) together in a bowl or plastic bag and combine well. Cover the bowl or seal the bag and refigerate for as long as you can. 24 hours is KING, but 2-3 hours will do the trick if you're desperate.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF/200ºC
    Tip the chicken onto a sheet pan then bake/roast in the oven for 40-50 minutes until the chicken is nice and browned.
  • Sprinkle over with the sesame seeds, spring onion and fresh coriander. I serve mine in the centre of the table on the sheet pan.
