Guys, these cranberry glazed chicken wings are SO DAMN GOOD.
The cranberries add the perfect amount of sweet, tart flavor to the already delicious Thai style sauce.
**Thai flavors are so delicious, especially when used on a chicken wing like these awesome baked Thai Marinated Satay Chicken Wings – so much flavor in these wings guys!!**
You have got to try these wings – I promise, once you try them you’ll never want to eat another wing again.
Wings are just so good.
And I know it’s only August, but I’m already starting to think about fall and the holidays. Which is why I’ve got cranberries on the brain. Well, and because this is a sponsored post.
If you’ve been cooking with me for some time, you already have this stuff in your pantry. If not, it’s easy enough to find at your local grocery store, or just buy on Amazon through the below links (affiliate links – I earn a small commission if you buy through these links – it helps me keep creating, testing and eating all these delicious chicken wings for you guys):
Because fresh cranberries aren’t available in July, I used Cape Cod Select frozen cranberries, which made this recipe super easy to make. The cranberries were fresh, tart and firm. Once thawed, it was like I was eating a fresh cranberry. Find out where to buy Cape Cod Select frozen cranberries.

How to Make Asian Sticky Wings
This is a super easy recipe guys. We first bake the chicken wings until they are crispy, then we coat them with the glaze, and then bake them for another 5 minutes to get gooey and caramelized. These babies are finger lickin’ good!
How Do You Make Chicken Wings Crispy in the Oven?
The best method I have found comes from Nagi over at RecipeTin eats. See her full recipe here.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Place the chicken wings in a bag with the baking powder and salt and shake to evenly coat the wings. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn up the heat to 425 degrees and bake another 40 minutes.
While your wings are cooking, you can make the glaze. Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5-10 minutes. Use a spoon to mash the cranberries as the glaze cooks.
**Add more or less sugar to taste. I like my lemonade tart, so I add less sugar. If you like it sweeter, add sugar until you’ve reached your desired sweetness.
Place the wings in a bowl, coat with the glaze and pop back into the oven for 5 minutes until gooey and caramelized.
Serve these Asian sticky wings with extra glaze on the side for dipping.
