  • 1 Whole Onion
  • 10 Cloves Garlic
  • 8 Cups Water
  • 1 Tbsp Salt

Thai Chili Sauce

  • ¼ Cup Sweet Thai Chili Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Sambal Oelek Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp Dark Sesame Oil
  • 4 Tbsp Butter


  • 1-2 Tbsp Chili Flakes
  • ¼ Cup Green Onions
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Peanuts


Chicken Wings

  • If you get whole wings that need to be cut, remove the tip and discard, separating the remaining piece into the drumette and the wingette (I personally get pre cut wings to save time)
  • Put the 8 Cups of Water in your pot along with the whole peeled onion, celery sticks, salt and garlic and bring to a boil
  • Once the water is boiling vigorously add the prepped chicken and the Franks Hot Sauce and boil on medium heat for 8 minutes (SEE NOTE)
  • Remove the wings using a slotted spoon, taking care to drain all liquid and lay flat on your cookie sheet rack to dry for about 10-15 minutes (SEE NOTE)
  • Preheat the oven to 425° while waiting for wings to dry
  • Once the oven is ready dry off any residual water with a paper towel and toss the wings in the baking powder
  • bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on your oven, flipping them halfway through (prepare your sauce while the wings are cooking)
  • Remove from the oven and toss in the prepared sauce

Thai Chili Sauce

  • Grind, crush or grate your garlic, ginger and lemongrass (SEE NOTE)
  • Add all of the ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Simmer for 5-10 minutes to get a well blended consistency
  • Cover and set aside till it's time to toss the wings


  • Chop the peanuts (I use raw peanuts for this)
  • Finely chop the green onions
  • Once the wings are out of the oven and tossed in the sauce plate them and add all of the prepped garnish ingredients to the wings and serve.
