If you like your chicken wings spicy, this is the perfect recipe for you. In this episode of Eating by Heart, Colombe Jacobsen demonstrates how to make Thai-style baked chicken wings. This is a healthy spin on everyone's favorite game-day food, since you will be making baked chicken wings instead of deep-fried chicken wings.
Flavorful and spicy ingredients like coriander, lime juice and cilantro take this recipe for Thai chicken wings to the next level. Start by mixing flour, coriander and sea salt in a bowl. Toss the chicken wings in this flour mixture to evenly coat. This will give your baked chicken wings a nice texture, and will create a coating for the Thai-style hot sauce to absorb into.
Even though chicken wings do have more fat than chicken breasts, a lot of the extra fat will cook off and the wings will have a nice flavor. Spread the chicken wings onto a baking pan, making sure not to crowd them so that they will brown evenly and beautifully. Place in the oven and bake at 500 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Now it's time to make the Thai-style sauce that will coat your baked chicken wings. Colombe uses melted coconut oil, a nutritious oil that has antibacterial properties and helps lower bad cholesterol. Add some red Thai curry sauce and fish sauce to bring out more complex flavors. Finally add hot sauce for that spicy kick found in classic chicken wings.
When your baked chickens wings are sizzling and ready, remove from the oven, drop them into the bowl with the Thai-style sauce and toss to coat. Make sure the wings are covered evenly with the delicious sauce. To finish, add fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime to elevate all the flavors. You're going to love the amazing flavor combinations in these Thai-style baked chicken wings.
