Recipe: Miso Butter Wings - P1050057

My recipe for miso butter chicken wings turned out even more delicious than I had hoped.

Much of the success behind this recipe has to do with the quality and type of butter. I used beurre demi-sel (slightly salted French butter) that I picked up when I was in Brittany. I highly recommend using a slightly salted butter for this recipe. If you don’t you may need to add a pinch or two of salt to yours. Mixing the butter with the miso brings out rich flavours – sweet and salty like a sea salt caramel with a hint of fruitiness and a touch of tang.

I grilled my miso butter wings over hickory chips for a super nice woody effect. But below are the instructions for cooking them in the oven.


Ingredients for the Wings (16 pieces)

  • 8 wings (chopped at joint with tip removed);
  • 3 tablespoons of slightly salted butter;
  • 1 tablespoon of miso paste (I use and additive free miso)
  • 2 tablespoons honey;
  • 1 crushed garlic clove;
  • Pinch of cayenne;
  • Black pepper to taste;
  • Black and white sesame seeds to taste;
  • Diced chives to taste.


  • Preheat your oven to 250°C;
  • Mix the butter, miso, honey, garlic, cayenne, and pepper together in a pot over low heat;
  • When the mix is integrated and liquefied, taste for balance and adjust if necessary;
  • Pour the mix over the wings;
  • Add the sesame to the wings;
  • Gently toss the wings for an even coating and place on a baking dish big enough for all the pieces to be spread as a single layer;
  • Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, checking them about 30 minutes in to see how they’re doing and turning them halfway through to make sure the wings are completely coated in the marinade;
  • Garnish with chives.


Drain the wings of any excess liquid and let cool. But serve them while they’re still pretty hot for best results.
