Half-time Chili Garlic Wings

by Katie Chin, Tastemaker in Residence


½ cup all-purpose flour 
½ tsp World Market Chinese Five Spice 
½ tsp salt 
2 lbs. chicken wings 
½ cup butter, melted 
1 Tbsp minced garlic 
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
2 tsp fish sauce 
¼ cup Mae Play Sweet Chili Sauce plus more for brushing 
3 Tbsp Huy Fong Srircha Sauce 
Oil for frying 


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. 
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, five spice powder and salt. Place chicken wings in a large n bowl and toss in the flour mixture until they are evenly coated. 
  3. Meanwhile, combine the butter, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, sweet chili sauce and Srircha sauce. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375°. The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep. 
  4. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Pour the sauce over the wings in a large bowl and toss to coat. 
  5. Place the wings on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. 
  6. Brush the wings with more sweet chili sauce before serving.
