Soy Caramel Glazed Chicken Wings

This is a variation of a classic Hong Kong dish called “Swiss-style chicken wings”, which is cooked in a sweet soy sauce, and is the inspiration for our award-winning soy caramel chocolate and soy caramel sauce. You can cook it either on the BBQ or in an oven – so you can enjoy this all-year round.

Soy Caramel Chicken Wings


  • 12 chicken wings
  • 2/3 cup of dark soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup of light soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 2-3 spring onions, cut to 2-3cm lengthwise
  • 4 slices ginger
  • 2 tbsp soy caramel sauce


  1. Bring a saucepan of water to boil, and put the chicken wings in for 1 minute. Then take the chicken wings out and put in a bowl of ice water.

  2. Put the soy sauce, sugar, spring onions and ginger into another saucepan and bring the marinade mixture to boil.

  3. Take the marinade mixture away from the heat and put the chicken wings into the marinade for 30 minutes, turning the wings occasionally.

  4. If you are using the oven, pre-heat the oven to 180C. If you are doing a BBQ, make sure the BBQ is hot enough.

  5. Cook the wings in the oven or on the BBQ for 7-8 minutes, turning them halfway through the cooking.

  6. Brush the soy caramel sauce onto the wings, and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  7. Brush some more soy caramel sauce onto the wings before serving.

  8. Optional: Garnish with some chopped chives or more spring onions. Alternatively try grating some dark chocolate on top of the wings before serving.
