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.

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

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
