Dunked wings

Dunked Wings

Cooking oil for frying
3 cups four
3 cups bread crumbs
Salt & pepper
20 chicken winglets/drummettes rinsed.
4 eggs, whisked

To Make the Sauce
1 cup boiling water
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 very small onion, grated
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups sweet chilli sauce
1/2 cup thick soy sauce
2 tbsp @tabascosa sauce

Mix the flour with breadcrumbs and salt & pepper. Dip the wings in the egg and coat with the flour mixture. Deep fry wings in the hot oil until the exterior is golden brown and crispy and they are cooked through. Once the wings are ready, transfer them to a plate with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Meanwhile, fry the onion in oil and then add all other sauce ingredients in the frying pan. Bring to the boil and then simmer until slightly thickened. Add the chicken wings to the sauce, toss until coated. Serve.

Firecracker chicken

Firecracker chicken

800g boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into pieces
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup cornflour
2 eggs beaten
3 tbsp cooking oil
@tabascosa Chipotle sauce, to your liking
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp red pepper flakes (or more)
cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Coat a baking pan with cooking spray. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the cornflour over the chicken and toss to coat evenly. Dip chicken into the beaten eggs. Heat the oil over high heat in a large pan and cook chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer cooked chicken pieces to a baking pan. In a small bowl, whisk together the @tabascosa sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar and red pepper flakes. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Bake for 35 minutes, stirring once halfway through to coat the chicken with the sauce. Top with green onions and sesame seeds and serve!
