Sweet Thai-Style Chicken Wings

My take on Sweet Asian Chicken wings. Great make-ahead food for parties or just for family dinners served with some rice and papaya salad.

  • 12-24 chicken wings
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
1. For the marinade: Mix everything but the chicken together in a large bowl until the brown sugar dissolves.

2. Mix in the chicken and let it marinade for at least 10 minutes, or overnight.

3. METHOD 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie/baking sheet with aluminum foil. This is important because the sauce from the chicken might burn your cookie sheet. Then place the chicken on the baking sheet. Cook for 35-40 minutes, turning every so often, until chicken is fully cooked.

4. METHOD 2: Broil or grill for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked, turning chicken every 5 minutes.

Easy Chocolate Wontons

Dessert wontons are really popular, especially the ones filled with fruit compote or bananas.

But if you're looking for a deep fried chocolate fix, then I present the CHOCOLATE WONTON.

Super easy, with only 3 ingredients. 1 of which you'll most likely already have in your kitchen.
  • Bag of mini snicker bars
  • 1 package Wonton wrappers, keep wrappers covered with a damp paper towel
  • 1 egg + 1 tbsp. water
You'll also need:
  • High-heat oil for frying (i.e., vegetable oil, corn oil)
  • Confectioners’ sugar (icing sugar) for sprinkling

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make an egg wash.

2. On a clean, dry surface lay 1 wonton wrapper down with a point toward you, like a diamond.

3. Place 1 piece of chocolate near the bottom end of the wrapper.

4. Brush a very thin layer of the egg wash on the edges of the wrapper.

5. Fold the top corner of the wrapper down to create a triangle and gently press to remove all air from the middle. Press the edges to adhere the sides. Make sure the wrapper is sealed completely.

6. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and chocolate pieces.

7. Keep the folded chocolate wontons covered under plastic wrap or a damp paper towel to prevent them from drying.

8. In a wok or medium pot, pour in 2 inches (5 cm.) of high-heat oil.

9. Heat the oil to 350º F (180º C) and gently slide a few of the chocolate wontons into the hot oil. Make sure you don’t crowd the chocolate wontons.

10.Fry the wontons for 1 ½ minutes, then flip over and fry another minute until both sides are golden brown and crisp.
