dark soy sauce
ground black pepper to taste
For those of you who think this recipe is too salty, just cut down the soy sauce to 2 Tbp. and the dark soy sauce to 1 Tbp. Normally we eat it with rice, so it is not too bad. The measurement can be easily adjusted to suit your taste bud in this recipe, so don't be afraid to experiment with it.

I baked these instead of grilling - we don't have one right now. They were very tasty.
Easy & delicious! I didn't have dark soy sauce the first time I made it and it was delicious. Made it a second time with dark soy sauce but reduced the amount and it was good. Careful with the dark soy sauce because it's very salty. Overall, an excellent, easy, delicious recipe.
Update 2/23/2010 - I have made this recipe more than 50 times now, both on the grill and in the oven. Now I skip the dark soy sauce altogether because I don't think it needs it and the regular soy sauce gives it enough flavor. I also add some sugar for a bit of sweetness and I always let it marinate overnight. I have made this for BBQs so many times and everyone loves it! It's a great recipe.
This was a good sauce, but I wouldn't recommend marinating for to long. I marinated for a whole day, and it was a little overpowering. A bit salty, but good overall. I will use this recipe again, but will only marinate for a few hours.
It is the best chicken wings recipe I've had. I followed the recipe and it is not that salty. I also used a dark soy sauce w/ mushroom flavor, which is also really good. I think it's because of the quality of soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. If you buy the good ones from an Asian store, it won't be that salty. If you buy the ones from a regular grocery store, those soy sauce and oyster sauce are SUPER salty and the taste quality is not so good. The brands I used are: Lee Kum Kee (Oyster Sauce), Kadoya (Sesame oil), Koon Chung (Soy sauce - Hong Kong brand), Pearl River Bridge (Dark soy sauce w/ mushroom flavor)
These were delicious, full of flavor! I added fresh garlic to the marinade as well. My kids loved them too! The most work was cutting up the chicken wings, but if you buy them pre-cut then it's not too much work at all. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe Ching!
it was too salty... wont make ever again!!!
Very very good. Halfway through the cooking I brushed on some of the leftover marinade but I wouldn't do that again as it made it way too salty. Stick with the directions and discard the leftover marinade and they will be fine.
