Sweet and sticky wings

Hari says

You know I love chicken wings and I have a few recipes on the website, well here is another one! I love to try new flavours and combinations so this is a quick and easy Indonesian style wing. The sauce is sticky and sweet and the wings are coated in a spiced crispy coating then baked to make them crispy and delicious. I like to finish them with some crunchy peanuts and I also add more heat with some sliced red chillies but you don't have to.

  • Ingredients
  • Method


  • ¼ cup cornflour
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1kg (approx) 12 chicken wings
  • 2 tbsps peanuts, chopped
  • 1 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 red chilli, sliced

Sticky Sauce

  • 200g brown sugar
  • 250ml water
  • 2tbsp fish sauce
  • juice from 1 lime 


  1. Stir the sugar and water in a large saucepan over a low heat until it dissolves. 
  2. Bring it to the boil and simmer gently for about 10 minutes until it thickens a little then remove from the heat.
  3. Stir in the fish sauce and lime juice and leave it to cool down.
  4. Line an oven tray with a baking sheet.
  5. Mix the corn flour, chilli powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  6. Toss in the wings and ensure they are fully coated with the corn flour mixture. Shake off the excess and place in a single layer on the tray. Drizzle with oil. Cook in a hot oven (200°c) for about 1 hour, or until wings are cooked through.
  7. Pour the sticky sauce over the baked wings and toss to coat them all over. Transfer to a serving plate.
  8. Sprinkle with peanuts, sliced spring onion and red chilli.
