A Thai-inspired baked chicken wing recipe that takes wings to a whole new level. Mildly spicy, dripping with homemade sweet chili sauce, and baked to perfection. A perfect crowd pleasing appetizer!
- 12 whole chicken wings, parts separated, tips removed and discarded
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes, plus more for garnish
- 8 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 2 stalks green onion, thinly sliced for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Place the wings on the baking sheet, spreading them out evenly and avoiding any overlapping.
Sprinkle the wings with the salt and pepper.
Bake for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, place all ingredients into a sauce pan and whisk to combine. Bring to a slight boil. Once the sauce begins to simmer, it will thicken slightly. You can make the sauce as thick as you want by continuing to simmer. I simmered the sauce for 15-20 minutes so that I ended up with a thick and sticky sauce. Use your own personal taste to decide.
Remove the wings from the oven and place them into a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat.
Place the wings back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Garnish with green onions and a sprinkling of dried chili flakes. Serve immediately.
