Sweet and Sour Chicken Wings
Crispy baked chicken wings in an easy and addictive sweet and sour sauce. There is no deep frying, fuss free and this recipe yields the best chicken wings ever!
I love chicken wings but I don’t like the hassle of deep frying. So I baked the chicken wings in the oven.
I love Chinese sweet and sour sauce so when you combine the two ingredients together, you get a serving of mouthwatering chicken wings that you can whip up easily at the comfort of your home.
There is no need to deep-fry the chicken wings. This recipe is easy, no hassle as the wings are baked in the oven until crispy. You get almost the same texture as deep-frying, but much healthier and with no grease.
Sweet and Sour Sauce
While the chicken wings are baked in the oven, prepare the homemade sweet and sour sauce. I used the most basic ingredients for the sauce, so there is no need to rush to Asian stores.
The sweet and sour sauce calls for ketchup, soy sauce, Sriracha and sugar. That’s all.
