  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp sriracha or more to taste
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp lemongrass

Chicken Wings

  • 1.5 kg – 3.3 lbs. chicken wings tips removed and cut at the joint
  • 125 gms – 1 cup flour
  • ¼ tsp chilly powder
  • 1 tbsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil or spray


  1. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Let it cook for another 3 to 5 minutes stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove the sauce from the fire and keep it aside.
  3. Put the flour, chilly powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, lime zest and salt on a plate or in a Ziploc bag and shake well to mix all the ingredients.
  4. Add the chicken wings to the bag and shake well until they are fully coated in the flour mixture. Shake off the excess flour.
  5. Put them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and spray them with a little extra virgin olive oil.
  6. Bake in a pre heated oven at 200°C – 400°F for 20-25 minutes. Then turn the chicken wings and bake them on the other side for another 20-25 minutes. This cooking time also depends on the size of the wings you are using.
  7. Once the chicken wings are cooked, dip them in the sauce and coat them well.
  8. Serve hot with the remaining sauce on the side.
