  • 1 lb chicken wings
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

For the sauce

  • 1 1/2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp rice wine
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp chili paste/oil optional
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp ginger finely grated
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F (205C).
  • Season the wings with salt and pepper and place them on a baking tray lined with foil or a baking mat. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove and flip over the wings. Bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sauce ingredients, except for the cornstarch, in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Once boiling, add the cornstarch and cool on a low boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Remove the wings from the oven and baste them liberally with the General Tso sauce.
  • Turn your oven to broil, with the top rack lowered to the 2nd row. Broil the wings for 3 minutes. Remove the tray and slather the sauce on the other side of the wings. Broil again.
  • Once the wings have gotten a light char on each side, remove them from the oven. If you like more sauce, put the wings in a bowl, add the remaining sauce, and toss to coat.


  • Baste the wings with the sauce and/or toss them with sauce to coat. Both ways are easy and delicious.
  • Baking the chicken on a silicon baking mat or parchment paper keeps them from sticking to the baking sheet and makes clean up easy.
