I may not be the sport enthusiast and hardly do I like to watch the games, but I do love that it is a perfect family activity when we can just relax and enjoy the moment. It’s Cricket season here. While Cricket World Cup is going on and the city is filled with fun and excitement, I’ve been cooking up some blistering bites for the game nights.
When you think of a perfect menu while watching games, what are you thinking of?.. hotdogs, sliders, chips and dips, rolls, meatballs, or any fun snacks? I know everyone love some tasty hot bites that they can easy grasp with their hands. For me, it’s chicken wings! A really simple, sticky, finger licking chicken wing is what we love chewing during the games. The smoky hot sweet juicy wings are disappeared really fast as soon as they hit the plate. Our wings are known for super tender meat that almost melted off the bones and the sauce that made you want to lick the plate.
Everybody has their favorite wings recipe and their very own version of preparing them. We love simple deep fried wings, tossed in smoky savory-sweet sauce with a few drop of Capsico sauce. It is quick and easy to make. I wouldn’t want to spend so much time cooking something complicated while everyone is cheering and having a great time in front of TV. It is good to steal spotlight for a moment when you bring a simmering hot scrumptious wings to the living room.
Ingredients: (4 servings)
700 gm chicken wings & drumettes
3/4 cup ketchup
3 tbsp smoky BBQ sauce
2 tsp honey
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
Few drop of Capsico sauce (or Tabasco sauce)
Oil for deep fry
Clean and wash chicken wings and drumettes in running water and pat dry.
Heat oil in the pan over medium heat.
When the oil is hot add chicken wings and fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oil and keep aside.
In another pan, mix ketchup, BBQ sauce, honey, sesame oil, and Capsico sauce. Stir over the medium flame for few minutes or until sticky and thicken.
Add deep fried wings in the sauce and toss together until everything is coated with sauce.
Serve hot with your favorite dips.
The wings turned out to be so wonderful. It was crispy and slight chewy with perfectly tender cooked meat inside. The sauce was sticky, sweet and perfectly balanced. The wings vanished fast, all you could see were trails of sauce in the corner of our month.
