  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 cups dark soy sauce
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Black paste food coloring*
  • Blue paste food coloring
  • Green paste food coloring

* If you cannot find black paste food coloring, just add a mixture of gel or liquid food colorings in red, blue, and green until a dark sauce is formed.


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Boil the chicken wings for 20 minutes in a large pot.
  3. While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. Whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper in a large roasting pan. Place the pan in the oven and bake for five minutes or until the brown sugar dissolves. Whisk until the sauce is smooth.
  4. Add enough black, blue, and green food colorings to the sauce to make a dark black sauce.
  5. Place the pan in the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, stirring once.
  6. Drain the wings well and add them to the sauce and toss to coat evenly, poking each wing liberally with a fork.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, then increase the temperature to 450 degrees F.
  8. Toss the wings in the sauce again to coat evenly.
  9. Bake until the sauce is very thick and glossy, flipping the wings over frequently, about another 10 minutes.
  10. Serve hot or at room temperature.
