Sticky Asian Fried Chicken Wings makes a delicious appetizer; this can also be eaten as a main dish with fried rice. Contrary to most people think, making your own Sticky Asian Fried Chicken Wings is quick and easy. I am saying this because I can show you how to make one in around 30 minutes.
Preparing your Sticky Asian Fried Chicken Wings will require you to complete two major steps: frying the chicken wings and making the glaze. Before frying the wings, make sure that the chicken is tasty enough. Do this by rubbing salt and pepper all over it. Give it a few minutes to absorb the flavor before starting to deep-fry the wings. Once the chicken wings are ready, make the sauce by simply adding all the glaze ingredients in a wide pan or wok. Toss the chicken when the glaze is ready. Simple, isn’t it? The recipe below will guide you on the detailed steps that you need to perform.
I tried to do a little Filipino tweak to this recipe by using spicy banana ketchup. I thought that the banana ketchup would give this dish a balanced spicy taste. You can also try to add a teaspoon of Hoisin sauce (Chinese Barbecue Sauce) for a bolder flavor.
