Begin by whisking together the soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, minced ginger, olive oil, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a bowl.
Place the chicken wings in a resealable plastic bag or a bowl, and then pour the marinade over the wings, ensuring that they are thoroughly coated.
Seal the bag or cover the bowl, and let the wings marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. For enhanced flavor, you can extend the marinating time to up to 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F).
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or lightly greasing it.
Arrange the marinated chicken wings on the baking sheet, ensuring they are in a single layer and have space between them.
Place the wings in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes. You can flip the wings halfway through the cooking process to achieve even browning and crispiness.
Once the wings are fully cooked and crispy, remove them from the oven and allow them to rest for a few minutes.
Enhance the flavor and presentation of the wings by garnishing them with fresh cilantro or sesame seeds.
Serve the honey garlic chicken wings while they’re still hot, either as an appetizer or a main dish. For an extra touch, provide your preferred dipping sauce alongside the wings.
