Baked chicken wings in oyster sauce require only 7 ingredients. Despite the modest number of seasonings, the dish bursts with flavor because of the boldness of oyster sauce.
Tasty, Simple Wings
This is perhaps the simplest method for preparing chicken wings.
One simple trick to guaranteeing delicious results is marinating the meat for at least an hour or overnight. From that point on, it’s next to impossible to ruin these unless you fall asleep while the oven is on.
The end result is a sticky, crispy, and delicious wing. If you’re afraid about the oyster sauce making the food taste fishy, you don’t need to be. As with anchovies, the flavor actually softens over time.
Ingredients like garlic powder, salt, and sesame oil supplement the oyster sauce, which you presumably already have on hand.

Since oyster sauce contains sugar, it makes a great, no-work coating for the baked-in marinade, which turns the chicken skin crispy.
In response to your inquiry, yes, you can use the same method for baking chicken thighs or leg quarters instead of wings (black meat is preferred).

- 3 1/2 pounds of chicken wings
