Lemongrass Wings

BBQ lemongrass wings recipe. Marinate chicken wings with lemongrass & Asian seasonings for the best BBQ wings ever. Easy and tastes so good.

When it comes to summer BBQ parties, one item that is always on my menu is BBQ wings. I will be honest, I don’t love regular BBQ chicken: drumstick, chicken breast, or thigh. I am not sure why, but they just don’t do it for me. When it comes to BBQ chicken, wing is the way to go. Many years ago, I was hooked on my friend F’s honey turmeric wings, but in recent years, I am all about using lemongrass and fish sauce to marinate my chicken wings, and hence these amazing lemongrass wings.

Lemongrass Wings

This is probably one of the easiest BBQ wings recipe as the ingredient lists are pretty short: lemongrass, fish sauce, garlic, honey, and black pepper. Marinate the wings overnight and fire up your grill the next day. If you don’t have a grill, don’t fret as you can actually bake these wings in the oven and then broil it for a couple of minutes to char the surface.

For the chicken wings, try to get smaller party wings if you can. These days, all the wings are rather big, so I always look for “party wings” whenever I have BBQ. I am lucky that I live close to a Japanese market that sells free range chicken wings. The wings are small but still meaty. They are just perfect for BBQ as they cook fast and it’s guaranteed that they will be cooked through.

    Great recipe, will try it in this week! Reminds me I forgot to sow my lemongrass seeds… Hint: if you cut the wings deep at the side of the bone (parallel to it) they will cook evenly, works well with big wings.

  2. Great and easy recipe! We love wings and also love BBQ! We have all the ingredients except the most basic one: lemongrass!It’s impossible to find it here in Athens(Greece). Can we substitute with lemon zest? How much do you think we should use?
    Thank you for sharing!

  3. Hi Rasa! Great recipe and I can’t wait to try it. Thank you for being specific about how to prepare the lemon grass, i.e. microplaning. I have seen it at the farmers market but didn’t quite know what to do with it! Do you have any tips about how to choose lemon grass at the market?
    Thanks!

    Yum! these wings look delicious and I love that it’s super easy to make. How long would you recommend baking it for?

    You make it easier for me with “what to cook for dinner tonight”. Very thankful for your blog every time I’m stuck in a rut. This is yummy. Will make for family soon.

    This recipe is delicious. I didn’t have honey, so I used light maple syrup and it worked just as well. I baked my wings at 350 for 30 minutes and broiled for 2 minutes. The flavour is light but well balanced between sweet and savoury and very tender. Thanks for the recipe! I’ll definitely be making these again!

  7. Made this over weekend as a finger food for my husband while he was watching world cup. And, he loved it! It’s so finger lickin’ good!

    Loved this recipe, really great asian twist that can complement many dipping sauces or just a squeeze of lime!

    These wings are very delicious! The lemongrass gives a nice twist to the ordinary wings.
    My whole family enjoyed them. Definitely a winner for any party or bbq.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!
