For the sweet and spicy chicken wing lover.

For those of you on the lookout for chicken wing recipes that have a sweet and spicy element to it, this is for you.

These wings might be slightly sweet but they carry quite a lot of heat.

Because…

I am using Asian red chilli flakes as well as a few green chillies to make them spicy. 

Pan-fried teriyaki chicken wings with homemade teriyaki sauce.

I’m using my own homemade teriyaki sauce recipe to make the spicy chicken wing glaze so none of that store-bought ones.

Stove-top teriyaki chicken wings all the way through.

The teriyaki wing recipe is not your usual baked wing recipe but done using your regular stove-top.

The chicken wings are first marinated and coated and then fried into golden brown perfection.

And as the fried wings cool down I make the teriyaki sauce and add the wings to the sauce.

See how easy it is?

Only eat it when it’s still warm because that’s when you can still get the crispy texture of the wings.

Can I use store-bought teriyaki sauce to make these crispy chicken wings?

You can use store-bought teriyaki sauce if you find the thick variety but I do find them to be too salty.

The reason I make my own homemade teriyaki sauce is that the ingredient table in the bottle reads with too many preservatives, all the more reason to make it at home.

How many chicken wings should I buy?

A regular person easily goes through 5 teriyaki wings in a single-serve because it’s addictive.

I usually buy about 700g-1kg wings but still find that it’s not enough for the family because even if they are done eating on the first serve they end up wanting a few more wings at dinner time.

So depending on how heavy or light eaters your family members are, I’ll say 7-8 chicken wings per family member.

I promise there won’t be any leftovers for the next day.

How can I make the spicy teriyaki wings kid-friendly?

Although the best way to make them is with a lot of heat if you want to adapt them for kids just reduce the amount of chilli you use.

Lunch ideas with chicken wings.

If you want to make a simple meal using the spicy teriyaki wings, you can simply make them and serve with my stir-fried noodle recipe which I make for the kids as a lunch box meal.

Add a salad to the mix and you have a lunch or dinner meal.
