Spicy Thai Chicken Wings


























http://www.howsweeteats.com/2012/05/sticky-thai-chicken-wings/

Probably the best thing I have ever made; I seriously can't wait to make them again, the spicy sweetness is burned in my taste buds...thank you How Sweet It Is and Food and Wine magazine for coming up with this fantastic and simple dish.  

I had been eyeing it for some time, now, but never really was in the mood, and, honestly, it looked a little more involved than I have been wanting to take on.  How wrong I was, but worth the wait, and no leftovers, which is always a good sign in my household.  The picture doesn't do it justice, but I went a little crazy on the toppings, note for next time.

Spicy Thai Chicken Wings

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Pat:

2.5 pounds chicken wings

completely dry then season with:

salt and pepper

Combine: 

1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup lite canned coconut milk
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon-sized knob of ginger, grated
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce

mixing with a fork.  Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat and add: 

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

Add chicken wings and sear, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove wings and set on a plate, then reduce heat to medium-low. Add chili sauce mixture and bring to boil. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes, whisking constantly.

Add wings back into the sauce, tossing to coat. Place skillet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and spoon the sauce over top of the wings, then garnish with:

1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup fresh cilantro

4 green onions, sliced

Serve and enjoy...and you will!!!
