Apple Cider Chicken Wings Recipe

3 Min Read


  • 2 pounds chicken wings, split at joints, tips removed
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: chopped fresh parsley or green onions for garnish


Marinate the Wings:

In a large bowl, combine apple cider, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, ground ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and a pinch of salt. Whisk until well combined.

Add the chicken wings to the marinade, tossing to coat evenly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the wings marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight for best flavor.

Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

Arrange the Wings:

Remove the chicken wings from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Place them in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each wing.

Bake the Wings:

Bake the wings in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy, turning them halfway through cooking for even browning.

Make the Glaze:

While the wings are baking, pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat.

Allow the marinade to reduce by about half, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly into a glaze-like consistency. This should take about 10-15 minutes.

Glaze the Wings:

Once the wings are cooked through and crispy, remove them from the oven.

Brush the reduced marinade glaze over the hot wings, coating them evenly.


Transfer the glazed wings to a serving platter. Sprinkle chopped fresh parsley or green onions over the top for a pop of color and extra flavor, if desired.

Serve the apple cider chicken wings hot as an appetizer or main dish. Enjoy!

These apple cider chicken wings are perfect for parties, game day, or any time you’re craving a tasty and unique twist on classic chicken wings. Enjoy!
