Baked Turkey Wings

  • 2½ - 3 pound or 1.3-1.5kg turkey wings
  • 2-3 tablespoon or 24-36g homemade Jerk Spice Blend or Creole Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon or 2g ground black pepper
  • cooking oil, optional

Spicy Honey Soy Garlic Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon or 28g butter
  • 1 teaspoon or 5g garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup or 140g ketchup
  • ⅛-¼ cup or 43-85g honey
  • 1-2 tablespoon or 12.5-25g brown sugar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2-3 tablespoon or 57g hot sauce, adjust to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoon or 30-45ml soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon or 2.71g cornstarch
  • ½ cup or 118.5ml pineapple juice or water


Baked Turkey Wings

  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400°F (200℃).
  • Wash turkey wings, if time permits let them dry out in the fridge for a couple of hours (about 3 or more).
  • Do not cover, let them dry in the fridge.
  • If short on time, dry wings with a paper towel or kitchen towel, then proceed with the next step.
  • Place the turkey wings in a large bowl with the Jerk Spice, pepper, and a drizzle of oil (optional).
  • Line a baking pan with foil; top with a wire rack. Arrange the turkey wings in a single layer. While the wings are baking, oil will slowly drip to the bottom of the baking pan.
  • Bake the turkey wings until cooked through and the skin is crispy, about 45-50 minutes. Rotate wings halfway through—roughly 25 minutes.
  • Remove and serve with your favorite sauce or use the sauce below.

Spicy Honey Soy Garlic Sauce

  • Add butter to a medium or small skillet and melt. Then add garlic and chopped green onions and sauté for about a minute or more.
  • Then add ketchup, honey, brown sugar, lemon juice, hot sauce, and soy sauce. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
  • In a separate small bowl, thoroughly mix the cornstarch with the pineapple juice or water.
  • Stir in the cornstarch mixture into the saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  • Adjust heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. You will then have a thick and sticky sauce. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Let it cool, then drizzle it over your baked turkey wings and have a blast.


  1. To ensure crispiness, make sure that the wings are dry and that the oven is preheated before baking them. 
  2. You can marinate your turkey wings ahead of time with your favorite seasoning, spice, or herbs.
  3. Store the leftover baked turkey wings inside the fridge for up to 4 days and 3 months in the freezer.
  4. Skip the hot sauce to make it a kid-friendly dish.
  5. You can also use this recipe for chicken, pork, or beef.
  6. Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary significantly based on the products used in the recipe.
