Spicy Chinese Chicken Wings

"These easy, spicy chicken wings are an excellent alternative to regular hot wings! I learned this recipe from my mother, who is from Taiwan, and it was always a childhood favorite! Almost all seasonings can be adjusted according to taste. (The Vietnamese chili garlic sauce can be found at any oriental grocery or even most regular groceries)."

  • Ready In

  1. Rinse and pat dry the chicken wings. Whisk together the sugar, soy sauce, rice wine, chili garlic sauce, sesame oil, and garlic in a large bowl, then add the chicken wings and toss to evenly coat.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chicken wings, sauce, and water. Cover and cook until the chicken wings are no longer pink at the bone, turning the chicken wings occasionally, about 15 minutes. Remove lid and continue cooking until the sauce has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was way too salty! I ended up omitting the soy sauce and substituting honey instead. It turned out great.

These were really very good. A nice change from buffalo wings. Mild spice level. Thanks for the post.

This tasted great, but it was too salty, and I used half the recommended LOW SODIUM soy sauce. Next time I'm using only a few tablespoons of the soy sauce, more rice vinegar (I didn't have rice ...
