These simple chicken wings are fried in the oven, avoiding the hassle and mess of deep-frying on the stovetop; for an air fryer version, see the recipe below. Lightly coating the wings with oil, then tossing them with cornstarch before cooking helps produce crispness without greasiness. Thai sweet chili sauce, sold in bottles, is sweet and spicy, as its name suggests, but it’s also tangy and garlicky. We use it as a sauce base for tossing the wings after cooking. The chili heat varies by brand, so if you’re seeking a bolder blast than what yours offers, stir some red pepper flakes or cayenne into the sauce.

Servings

Tip

Don’t allow the wings to cool before tossing them with the sauce. Add them while hot so they readily absorb the flavorings without losing their crispness.

My chicken did not look red as pictured
The dish turned out okay, but my chicken didn’t have the expected reddish color. I purchased Thai Sweet Chili Sauce from our local grocery store. Could you please share the sauce used in this recipe? Additionally, I found that there wasn’t enough sauce, so I ended up doubling the recipe. I will try making it again but maybe use a different sauce.
