Bajan Flair with a Fiery Kick


The Bajan chicken wings from olivemagazine are a culinary adventure for those who love intense flavors and heat. The recipe is quite involved, requiring a homemade pepper sauce and pickled red onions, but the effort pays off in spades. The combination of turmeric, mustard powder, scotch bonnet peppers, and horseradish creates an aromatic base that's both earthy and fiery. Marinating the wings in buttermilk ensures they stay juicy while frying. Topped with Bajan pepper sauce-infused mayonnaise and fresh coriander, these wings offer a complex taste profile that's not for the faint-hearted.

Asian-Inspired Sweetness

The Spruce Eats

Sweet Soy Chicken Wings from The Spruce Eats present an Asian-inspired twist on the classic wing recipe. This simple yet flavorful dish combines soy sauce with brown sugar and honey to create a sticky glaze that caramelizes beautifully when baked or grilled. Garlic adds depth to the sweetness while optional ingredients like dry sherry and grated ginger introduce additional layers of flavor complexity. These wings are perfect for those who prefer their chicken sweet rather than spicy, making them an excellent choice for family gatherings where palates may vary.

Each recipe offers its own unique take on chicken wings - from Bajan spice to Asian-inspired sweetness to honey-glazed simplicity - catering to different preferences in flavor profiles and cooking complexity. Whether you're after bold spices or sweet glazes, there's something here for every wing enthusiast's palate; however, it’s clear that each requires different levels of preparation time which should be considered based on your occasion or preference.

Frequently asked questions

1. How long should I marinate the chicken wings?

When marinating chicken wings, the duration can vary depending on the intensity of flavor you desire and the type of marinade you're using. Here's a general guideline:

  • Minimum Marination Time: At least 30 minutes
  • Standard Marination Time: 1 to 4 hours
  • Maximum Marination Time: Up to 24 hours

For a basic marinade, allowing your chicken wings to sit for at least an hour is ideal. This gives them enough time to absorb some flavors without being overpowering.

If you're using a marinade with acidic ingredients (like vinegar or citrus juice), be cautious about marinating for too long as the acid can start to break down the proteins in the meat and affect its texture.


  • Always marinate chicken in the refrigerator, not at room temperature.
  • If you plan on using some of the marinades as a sauce later, make sure to set aside a portion before adding raw chicken.

After marinating, don't forget to discard any leftover marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken unless it is boiled first to eliminate any harmful bacteria.

2. What are some popular seasoning options for chicken wings?

Chicken wings are incredibly versatile when it comes to seasoning, and you can choose from a wide array of flavors to suit your taste. Here are some popular seasoning options for chicken wings:

Classic Buffalo:

  • Hot Sauce (like Frank's RedHot)
  • Butter
  • Garlic Powder
  • Paprika

BBQ Flavor:

  • Brown Sugar
  • Paprika
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Chili Powder

Lemon Pepper:

  • Lemon Zest or Lemon Juice
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Optionally, add butter for richness


  • Soy Sauce
  • Brown Sugar or Honey
  • Garlic
  • Ginger

Cajun Seasoning:

  • Paprika
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder

Garlic Parmesan:

  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Minced Garlic or Garlic Powder
  • Parsley
  • Salt

Sweet and Spicy Dry Rub:

  • Brown Sugar
  • Chili Powder
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Cumin

Remember that the key to great-tasting wings is not just in the seasoning but also in the cooking method. Whether you're baking, grilling, frying, or air-frying your chicken wings, make sure they're cooked thoroughly and have a nice crispiness to them before adding any wet sauces. For dry rubs, apply them before cooking so they can help form a delicious crust on the outside of the wing.

3. How do I make crispy chicken wings?

To make crispy chicken wings, you'll need to follow a few key steps and use certain ingredients that help achieve that perfect crunch. Here's a rough guideline with suggested ingredients:


  • Chicken wings (as many as you'd like to cook)
  • Baking powder (NOT baking soda)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder (optional for flavor)
  • Paprika or cayenne pepper (optional for flavor and heat)


  1. Prep the Wings:
    • Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. Removing moisture is crucial for crispiness.
    • In a bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of baking powder per pound of chicken wings with your desired amount of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika/cayenne.
  2. Coat the Wings:
    • Toss the wings in the baking powder mixture until they are evenly coated.
    • The baking powder will react during cooking to create tiny bubbles on the skin's surface, making it crispy.
  3. Refrigerate:
    • Place the coated wings on a rack over a baking sheet and refrigerate uncovered for at least an hour or overnight. This step helps dry out the skin further.
  4. Bake:
    • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
    • Arrange your chicken wings on a rack in single layer so air can circulate around them.
    • Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes then flip them over and bake for another 20 minutes or until they're golden brown and crispy.
  5. Optional Broil: If you want them extra crispy:
    • After they're baked through, broil them on high for 2–3 minutes per side watching carefully not to burn them.
  6. Serve Hot: Serve immediately after cooking while they're at their crispiest!

Additional Tips:

  • Make sure not to crowd your pan; if necessary use two racks in different parts of your oven swapping halfway through.

Remember that ovens may vary so keep an eye on your first batch until you know how quickly they crisp up in your own oven!

4. How do I prevent the chicken wings from sticking to the baking sheet?

To prevent chicken wings from sticking to the baking sheet, follow these steps:

  1. Line the Baking Sheet: Use parchment paper or aluminum foil to line your baking sheet. This creates a non-stick surface and also makes cleanup easier.
  2. Non-Stick Spray: Even if you're using parchment paper or foil, it's a good idea to spray the surface with a non-stick cooking spray to ensure that the wings don't stick.
  3. Oil Them Up: Toss your chicken wings in a small amount of oil before placing them on the baking sheet. The oil will help create a barrier between the chicken skin and the pan.
  4. Space Them Out: Make sure that there is space between each wing on the baking sheet so they aren't touching each other. This helps them cook evenly and prevents sticking.
  5. Use a Wire Rack: Elevate your wings by placing a wire rack onto your lined baking sheet, then put your chicken wings on top of that rack. This allows air to circulate around all sides of the wing for even cooking and reduces direct contact with hot surfaces which can cause sticking.
  6. Turn Them Over Halfway Through Cooking: Using tongs, flip over each wing halfway through cooking time to ensure they cook evenly and don’t stick to one side.
  7. Proper Preheating: Ensure that your oven is fully preheated before adding in your tray of wings as putting them into an oven that isn't hot enough can cause sticking due to slow start in cooking process.

By following these tips, you should be able to enjoy perfectly cooked chicken wings without any hassle from them sticking!

5. What is the recommended internal temperature for cooked chicken wings?

The recommended internal temperature for cooked chicken wings, as with all poultry, is 165°F (74°C). This ensures that the chicken is safe to eat and that any harmful bacteria have been killed. Always use a meat thermometer to check the temperature at the thickest part of the wing, avoiding the bone for an accurate reading.
