Sweet Chilli Oven-Baked Crispy Chicken Wings

Crispy chicken. Like fried chicken. Without the frying process. Yeah, I’m pretty excited, but I’ll stop with the whole full stop thing now. It’s just that, I love making fried things even if they aren’t the epitome of health, however, I pretty much hate the frying process. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I love the fried product! But not so much the splattering hot oil everywhere…

So. Here’s a pretty damn good compromise. Just like you would with fried chicken, we keep the soaked-in-buttermilk process to keep the meat nice and moist inside when cooking, and then we coat them in panko breadcrumbs, and pop them in the oven to get crisped up. I promise you, it’s like panko-fried chicken, which sounds pretty great if you ask me. If you ask me again, it tastes even better! πŸ˜›

Plus side? Oven baking obviously makes it healthier,Β and makes you feel full, without like a bag of lard that heavier fried foods make me feel afterwards. Result.

To make it even better, I made a sweet-spicy sauce from a few kitchen stock ingredients to make things even messier, but even more delicious. So much so that, in fact, it disappeared pretty quickly…

I’ll take that as a compliment.
