Hot and Sweet Chicken Wings



Hello Foodies,  I am Swapna again back with a wonderful authentic chinese recipe, Hot and Sweet Chicken Wings. This is a very simple recipe of marrianted chicken wings, deep fried and served along with hot and sweet sauce. I have mentioned here before also that my family is found of chinese recipes. This is the recipe I developed to satisfy my hubby’s craving towards chinese hot and sweet recipes. In many chinese recipes deep- fry the wings, but this deep- fried roasted method used here is far healthier and the taste is delicious. This sauce is dark and a bit mysterious. Well, its not mysterious to you people because I am giving yoy here the step by step cooking pictures along with recipe. But it will be mysterious to anyone you serve these to because the flavors are so deep and interesting, but its tough to pick out any one single ingredient. The main ingredient of the recipe is hot and sweet chilly sauce and honey. It gives the sauce a little sweetness and makes it, well sticky. After all, this is a recipe of saucy, juicy and tender chicken wings. Lets see, how I am going to make this easy recipe. You all people try out this recipe and give me a feed back.
