Asian Sticky Wings with a Little Kick!

Kelly Williams


I just plain love wings! Chicken-fried, deep-fried, bbqed, buffalo, sweet 'n sour, you name it! I'm on it! These are one of my all-time favorites, though! Sweet 'n hot, sticky and delicious! Just let them cool a bit before eating, as the sweet sugary sauce is very hot at first! I've been working on this one for awhile, hope you enjoy! :D

How to Make Asian Sticky Wings with a Little Kick!


  1. Rinse wings and drumettes, and pat completely dry with paper towels.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Place chicken, peppers (whole), and shallots into deep baking dish. Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl. Pour over chicken.
    Place in oven for 1 1/2-2 hours or until chicken is extremely tender and sauce is sticky, turning chicken 3 times, carefully!, and stiring and basting after turning.
    *IMPORTANT: Due to the hot cooked sugar, chicken and sauce will be VERY hot! Be careful and let chicken sit for at least 15-20 minutes before serving.

    After resting, they can be transferred to a crock pot on low to keep warm.

    Extra sauce can be served on the side for dipping.
    Eating the peppers are for the brave!

    (*Do not bake for less time or they will not be nearly as good. Baking time is important.)
  2. One last thing:
    Lining your pan or baking dish with foil helps with the cleanup! You can also bake these in a throw-away foil pan.
