Soy Sauce: Soy sauce is a salty and savory ingredient that adds umami flavor to the marinade. It also helps to tenderize the chicken wings, making them juicy and flavorful.

Honey: Honey adds a touch of sweetness to balance out the savory and salty flavors in the dish. It also helps to caramelize the chicken wings during cooking, giving them a delicious glaze.

Garlic: Garlic is a pungent and aromatic ingredient that adds depth of flavor to the marinade. It complements the other ingredients well and enhances the overall taste of the dish.

Salt: Salt is a crucial ingredient that helps to bring out the flavors of the other ingredients. It enhances the overall taste of the dish and helps to balance the sweetness and spiciness.

Paprika: Paprika adds a smoky and slightly sweet flavor to the marinade. It also gives the chicken wings a beautiful red color and adds a touch of warmth to the dish.

Onion Powder: Onion powder adds a mellow and savory flavor to the marinade. It complements the other ingredients well and helps to enhance the overall taste of the dish.

Coriander Leaves: Coriander leaves, also known as cilantro, add a fresh and citrusy flavor to the dish. They provide a pop of color and freshness to the chicken wings, making them more vibrant and appealing.
