Spicy Sticky Chicken Wings

Almost every kid I know loves eating chicken wings, no matter how they are cooked, pan-fried, deep-fried, baked or brined. All wings would be gone very quickly once they are served. Besides, I don’t know what magic ketchup (tomato sauce) has. Take my family as an example, anything with ketchup won’t stay on a plate for too long. It's easy to predict how popular it would be the combination of chicken wings and ketchup. So, whenever I have to bring something to a social gathering, with kids are attending there, I’d think of making chicken wings in the first place. This time I experimented a way to reduce most of the fat in wings, at the same time retain the most flavours to entertain their taste buds.

Spicy Sticky Chicken Wings (Printable recipe)

Ingredients:
  • 8 to 10 organic chicken wings, or free range wings
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly grated black pepper
Seasonings:
  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce (ketchup)
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • Water, to adjust

Method:
  1. Rinse chicken wings and pat dry with paper towels. Remove and discard the tip of each wing. Cut them in half at the joint. Sprinkle garlic salt and pepper evenly. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan. Place wings on pan in single layer and cook on both sides in batches over high-medium heat until brown. The wings would release some oil. Drain and discard the excess oil.
  3. Toss back the wings. Add seasonings, stir to combine, and reduce heat to low. Continue to cook, covered, add more water if necessary, until the wings are cooked through. Serve hot.

Note:
  • You can omit the Tabasco sauce in the seasonings if your kid is too small or you don’t like the wings spicy. Having said that the Tabasco sauce really adds the kick and make a big difference in taste.

  1. Thank you for sharing you tips on how to reduce the fat. :) The wings look so tasty. Do you need to heat a lot of oil or no? Around 1 tbsp or less? Thanks again.

    Wonder if organic or free range chickens are popular in your place; they are pretty pricey here.

  14. My whole family loves chicken wings, since we know each other...haha. Talking about ketchup......I can finish a bottle! I used to finish almost a whole bottle of ketchup every time I ate at KFC. These days, I'm more health conscious so I don't eat like that :D Your chicken wings look very tempting.

  15. Chicken wings are my favorite parts of the chicken. The meat is so tender (thank the chicken for flapping often) and I like the skin too (that is sinful of me but I just like it) :)

  18. Yum! This is such an easy recipe. I cannot believe how quick it was to prepare, not to mention that the majority of the ingredient are things that I have in my pantry on a regular basis! So all I had to do wad purchase the chicken wings. And you were right about kids loving them. My son kept asking for more. I work with Better Recipes so I am always reviewing recipes but I think that for me, personally Easy Recipes are my favorite. I like to cook but I don't like to feel overwhelmed by a ton of ingredients and millions of steps in a recipe. These wings were just delicious!
