The Best Thai Chicken Wings
Making these Thai chicken wings doesn’t take too much effort. All you need to do is bake and coat! I much prefer baking my chicken wings rather than cooking them on the stove top because there’s always so much oil that pops out of the frying pan and makes a huge mess.
Baking the wings in the oven also ensures that they have a nice crispy and juicy skin with no burn marks. Now, I wanted my wings to be pretty spicy, a tad bit more than what my Thai sweet chili sauce offers so I coated my wings with some salt, pepper and cayenne pepper prior to baking them so that they had some extra kick.
The chicken wings in Japan come with the wingtip attached to the flat. They are very delicious, but would increase the calories and fat by too much in this recipe so I decided to cut them off. You can discard them or use them for homemade bone broth.
You could coat your chicken wings in some baking powder if you wanted them to be more crispy, but I found it wasn’t necessary as they were going to get sticky from the sauce afterwards.
When the chicken wings are done baking, I transferred them to a frying pan with the Thai sweet chili sauce. I coated all of the wings until the sauce had considerably simmered down, thickened and coated the wings. I finished the recipe with some added chili flakes because I love my wings extra spicy!!
Recipes using Sweet Chili Sauce
You can do so many recipes using sweet chili sauce. It’s such a versatile sauce that almost anything is guaranteed to taste amazing when coated by it or dipped in it. You can coat any type of protein you want or you can dip any vegetable or fried food with it!
For example, you could make some Paleo fried chicken, coat it in this Thai sweet chili sauce and have amazing sweet chili chicken! You could even use my keto fried calamari or my gluten free chicken nuggets and dip them in this amazing dipping sauce! The possibilities are endless!
These Thai chicken wings are first baked in the oven and then coated in this sticky Thai sweet chili sauce. You can also bake some fish, like salmon, and coat it in the sauce to have some delicious sweet chili salmon. Another seafood idea would be to make a stir-fry with some shrimp or even with a seafood mix.
