Ooey Gooey Hot Spicy Chicken Wings

For the most part I like meat savory and not ooey gooey sweet. BBQ pork ribs and chicken wing drumettes are a total different story.

It has been a while since I made chicken wings. It was time so Joe found 2 packages that had the price dropped because the code date was up in 2 days. Perfect timing.

A day or so before one of my favorite Asian youtube cooks posted a video on her version of chicken wings.
You can find her recipe HERE.

She sold me on giving her version a try … so while at the market I picked up a bottle of Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce. I am not very familiar with Asian chili sauce but was looking for something not too hot and the Mae Ploy looked like it would work.

Normally I follow a recipe exactly just once to see how it turns out. But today I was short on time plus did not have everything she called for in my pantry and with the outside temp pushing 105 degrees? … it was just use what was on hand.

OH MY GOODNESS this is one of those recipes we call a 5 star keeper.
Here are the photo steps with print out recipe to follow.

  1. 2 lbs. chicken wings
  2. 2 cups corn oil for frying
Flour Mixture
  1. 1/2 cup flour
  2. 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  3. 1 tsp. garlic granules
  4. 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  5. 1/2 tsp. salt
  1. 12 oz. bottle Mae Ploy
  2. (sweet chili sauce)
  3. 1 Tbsp dry onion (Costco)
  4. 1/2 tsp. garlic granules
  1. 1. Place Flour Mixture in a plastic bag with your chicken drumettes. About (2 lbs) 12 to 14 pieces and shake well to coat.
  2. 2. Heat oil to very hot about 350 degrees. Fry chicken for about 4 minutes then turn and fry another 4 minutes. Do not over crowd your skillet.
  3. 3. When chicken is golden brown on both sides drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  4. 4. In a large skillet add the bottle of sweet chili sauce, dry onion, garlic and mix. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for a minute or 2 then add the chicken back to the skillet. Let it simmer turning to coat all pieces.
