Hoisin Stout Chicken Wings: Because You’re Too Cool to Settle for Buffalo Wings

by Jackie Dodd ; Updated October 17, 2017

There is something harmonious about beer and chicken wings. It’s a perfect pairing that always seems to be the center for casual, fun evenings that more often than not involve sports viewing. But even a lazy Sunday or a week night dinner could use a little beer-cooking magic. The stout in these wings gives you a little kick of flavor on the finish and also acts as a meat tenderizer to make sure those wings are extra juicy. And with a ten minute active time, these are great to have in your beer cooking arsenal. You can even pretend like you slaved over them.

Hoisin Stout Chicken Wings


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped shallots
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup porter beer
  • 2/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp. red chili sauce (such as sriracha)
  • 1 ½ lbs. chicken wings


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. In a pot over medium high heat, add the olive oil. Add the shallots and cook until softened and slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic.
  3. Add the beer, hoisin, soy sauce and red chili sauce. Allow to boil, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 8 minutes.
  4. Arrange the chicken wings in an even layer in a 9×13 baking dish. Pour the sauce over the chicken.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes. Using tongs, turn the chicken wings over. Continue to bake until cooked through, about 15 additional minutes.  Remove from sauce prior to serving.
