Looking for a tasty chicken wing sauce? This handy guide covers all of the best sauces for wings – buffalo sauce, BBQ sauce & so much more! Try these Vietnamese Chicken Wings. Baked in the oven until crisp & coated in a sweet-spicy combination of soy sauce, brown sugar and sambal oelek chili paste.
Place chicken on a sheet pan lined with foil. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single layer and roast for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned (they will continue to cook after tossing with the sauce).
While the wings roast, make the sauce. Combine the soy, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and sambal oelek.
When the chicken is browned, transfer the wings to a large bowl. Add half the sauce and toss to coat.
Return the wings to the lined sheet pan and arrange in a single layer. Roast for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until browned. Remove from the oven.
Toss with the remaining sauce and sprinkle with chopped cilantro, sesame seeds, and green onions. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
