Sweet & Spicy Sticky Wings

I've made these a couple of times by frying them like the recipe says to... but they were missing that Egged flavor that I love so much.

It's a twist on the wings at Pok Pok in Portland -- they were on the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate.

I used THIS recipe and THIS one.

The marinade is fish sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, salt, and water.

Then the marinade is reduced and Red Curry Paste is added.

I cooked them at ~300F on a raised grid for almost an hour.

Coat the chicken with the sticky sauce and add chopped cilantro.

These last 2 pics are from when I fried them a few months ago, but you get the idea.

Now that I've done them a few times I think the next time I make them will be the best one yet. :)

  • Wow, these look great. Minus the cilantro for me though.

    Those look delicious! 

    I made the best wings of my life a month or two ago with a similar recipe, it was a modification of a Malaysian recipe where the marinade was coconut milk, ginger, curry, etc based.  Marinaded over night, scraped off marinade, on egg while reducing marinade, then saucing with half of it, then using the final reduced marinade as a dip.

    These look great- thanks!  I recently tried fish sauce for the first time after reading about it's wonders.  It is true that it can make the finished dish so good...even though it smells so bad in the bottle ;)


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    henapple -- you can make them as hot as you want them.  The chili paste has a little kick, but not much.
    SmokeyPitt... the smell from the bottle is pretty strong @-) but it's so worth it!

    Those look excellent!!  Thanks for sharing. While I envy you those tasty wings I don't envy the cleanup it looks like you had on your grate.

    Cleanup on the grate?  I'm not familiar with that concept.  Please explain.

    ;))  I hear you. But that third to the last pix looked like it isn't gonna burn off any time soon. Hammer & chisel maybe.

    Really want to make this recipe this weekend. Just a little confused Kristi. This post says Red Curry Paste and I. Your blog it says Red Chili Paste. Maybe they're they same, but I have these two options, which would be best in your expert opinion? Would either work depending on if someone didn't like curry flavour?

    Hey @Greeno55 -- I'm sorry for the confusion.

    I've used both for these wings -- Red Curry Paste (the one you have) and Roasted Red Chili Paste (pic below).

     Couscous

    I liked both of them!

    That chili garlic sauce you have will be great! That's what the blogger Food.People.Want. used -- the original recipe didn't have anything extra, they just reduced the marinade.

    I say go with the chili garlic sauce ... and then let us know -- I think I'll try that next! :)

    Oh!  and there is a lot of sugar in the marinade, so watch your flame.  I learned that one the hard way. :-\"

    I brought these to a Christmas party tonight. All I can say is AMAZNG!! What a hit. The Egg added a smoke most people had never had. Everyone couldn't believe these weren't ordered in. As pungent as the fish sauce is, it cooks down so well. I added a little sriracha to the garlic chili sauce (see my photo above) to the reduction and it was unbelievable. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks Kristi for a fantastic recipe. Cheers all!,
