Thai Sweet Chilli & Soya Chicken Wings

 [The wings here are a little under roasted, a few minutes longer in the oven would have further caramlised them] 

I had bottles and bottles of thai sweet chilli sauce at home that needed to be used up before they went off - thanks to one of my brother's sauce addictions. I'm not too big a fan of Thai sweet chilli as I find it too sweet but I didn't want the bottles to go to waste, so starting thinking of ways I could use it whilst toning down the sweetness. 

Soya sauce! One of my favourite condiments to use in cooking/marinades/dips. Combining Thai sweet chilli with soya sauce certainly toned down the sweetness and actually produced one of the most delicious and easy to make marinades. 2 ingredients - what's not to love? 

I've made these wings a few times now and love the flavour. They would also work well with chicken thighs/drumsticks, and I bet this flavour would also taste great in a noodle stir fry.


Ingredients:
10 chicken wings  
4 tbsp light soya sauce 
1/3 cup Thai sweet chilli sauce
3 tbsp water


Directions:
1. Combine soya sauce, Thai sweet chilli sauce and water together. Mix well
2. Pour over chicken wings and rub all over. Let wings marinade like this for around 10-15 minutes
3. Set the oven to the highest setting, transfer wings to a roasting tray and cover with foil. Roast for 20 mins, then uncover foil, turn the chicken over and roast for a further 10 mins or until cooked through

*Covering with foil initially stops the sugar in the sweet chilli sauce burning from the high heat
