Sticky Chilli Chicken Wings

Wing Wednesday did not disappoint with these babies… so freakin’ good… I can’t stop eating them!  

The wings are marinated in the same mix I use for my Japanese kara-age chicken… soya sauce, ginger, garlic, and spring onions, then dredged in flour and deep-fried.  The sticky chilli sauce is made by mixing the secret ingredient, my absolute fav chilli sauce @linghamsuk; add to that some ginger, garlic, soya sauce, maple syrup, ketchup, sesame oil, and rice vinegar… simmer until heated through then toss the crisp wings in that delicious sticky sauce… YESSSSSS…. so good!!!
