Ingredients

Chicken Wings

  • 900 to 1350 gms – 2 to 3 pounds chicken wings or drummettes
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic lightly mashed
  • Flour
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Sauce

  • 1 tsp butter
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ cup sweet chili sauce
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

Instructions

Chicken Wings

  1. Wash and dry the chicken wings.
  2. Put some flour on a plate and mix some salt and pepper with it. Coat the chicken wings in the flour.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat, add the mashed garlic and cook it for a few minutes to infuse the oil, then remove the garlic cloves.
  4. Add chicken wings to the pan and fry them for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the skin becomes crunchy and golden brown and they are cooked through. When ready, drain them on a paper towel. If you need to cook them in batches, keep the chicken wings warm in the oven.

Sauce

  1. In a saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and sesame oil and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Add the chilli sauce, soy sauce and marmalade. Cook the sauce for a few minutes, until the marmalade dissolves and the sauce slightly thickens. Keep it warm until ready to serve.

Assembling

  1. When the chicken wings are ready, dip them one by one in the warm sauce and serve them immediately, with the remaining sauce on the side.
