Instructions
  1. Thoroughly pat dry chicken wings to avoid oil splatter when frying.
  2. Heat oil at 375° and deep fry chicken for about 15-20 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium size pan over a medium heat. Saute minced garlic for 30 seconds. Then, add onion and stir for 2 minutes. Add tomato ketchup, soy sauce, sriracha sauce, honey, water, and chicken stock powder. Stir and taste. Add sugar (optional), for added sweetness. Add slurry and stir. Let the sauce simmer for about 2-3 minutes or until it reaches your desired consistency over a medium heat.
  4. Use 4 tablespoons of the sauce to baste fried chicken. Stir it thoroughly until the fried chicken is properly coated. Add more or less sauce as desired. Use the remaining sauce as a dipping sauce.
  5. Transfer the sweet and spicy chicken wings to a plate. Top chopped green onions and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Serve and enjoy!
