Sweet-Spicy Chicken Wings. There was this Vietnamese restaurant where we love to eat because the ambiance was so pleasant and the food was really, really good especially their spicy chicken wings and noodles.
But recently, the restaurant was permanently closed for some reason and we got sad for we will surely miss dining out there and the food. So, I tried to recreate their sweet-spicy chicken wings and modesty aside, I did a good job recreating it! 🙂 Here’s the recipe! Enjoy cooking! 🙂
1/2 kg. chicken wings – cut into 2 inches long
2 cups coke or pepsi cola
1 tsp. black pepper powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 cup all purpose flour for breading
1 cup vegetable/canola oil for frying
1 tsp. patis (fish sauce)
1 cup “mae ploy” chili sauce (can be bought in Oriental store or Oriental section in a grocery store)
Note: If “mae ploy” chili sauce is not available in your area, you can make your own version of this sauce by combining and sauteing minced red bell pepper, onion, garlic, corn starch, banana catsup, small amount of patis and chili pepper.
1) Marinate over night the chicken wings with coke or pepsi, garlic, salt, and soy sauce.
2) For the breading mix, combine the flour and garlic powder and mix well.
3) Roll the chicken wings to the breading mix until fully covered with breading mix.
4) Deep fry the chicken wings until crispy. Put the fried chicken wings on a plate with paper towel to reduce the oil.
5) In a sauce pan, pour the mae ploy chili sauce then add the patis and stir. Let it boil and simmer for 30 seconds.
6) In another plate arrange the fried chicken then pour the sauce into it.
7) Garnish it with onion leaves and ready to serve.
