Honey-Coriander Chicken Wings from ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 pounds chicken wings or drumettes, patted dry


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  • Preheat oven to 500°F, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine all ingredients except chicken in large glass bowl; stir to combine. Add chicken and toss to coat.
  • Divide chicken in single layer between prepared baking sheets and bake until browned and completely cooked through, about 35 minutes, rotating baking sheets on racks and turning chicken halfway through cooking.


  • While wings are baking, combine ingredients in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally, until liquid thickens and reduces to a syrup, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.
  • Brush or toss baked chicken with wing sauce to coat. Serve with remaining wing sauce on the side or with preferred dipping sauce.

If you are making this recipe at home, the wing sauce requires a keen eye. The difference between a well reduced sauce and an over-reduced sauce is slim.

Having a little extra sauce for dipping is important, too. When the sauce is on point, you will be licking your fingers wanting to savor each and every bite.

Also, interesting foodie note. Did you know that cilantro leaves and stems are from the coriander plant? While the coriander seeds and the cilantro leaves have different flavors, they are related. And, cilantro is Spanish for coriander.

From a special Father’s Day meal to summer gatherings to just because you are craving your favorite Disney meal, this Disney recipe is one to keep. You might even make these Honey-Coriander Chicken Wings for the Super Bowl.
