Notes on the Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings (Canh Ga Sot Ngot) Recipe, Tips and Tricks

This recipe is super easy and very easy to adjust to your flavor preference. If you like the sauce a bit sweeter, add 1-2 Tbsp agave nectar for a delicate sweetness. If you prefer more intense and salty flavors, add 1 Tbsp soy sauce or oyster sauce. It all works! Find plum sauce at any Asian grocery store. Hoisin sauce is the condiment you eat with pho. Mirin wine is a slightly sweet and tangy rice wine and complements chicken really well. You can substitute Mirin wine with your favorite cooking wine as well.

Use any brand of chicken wings available. A lot of times you can stock up during a sale at your grocery store. I love Kirkland’s organic chicken wings from Costco. They are sold in a three pack with each pack weighing about 2 pounds, so enough for one recipe.

Season the chicken with just garlic powder, salt and pepper. The robust flavors come from the homemade marinade. Marinate the chicken for as long as it takes you to prep the rest of the ingredients.

Pan fry the chicken wings in a large non-stick skillet. Flip and move the pieces around in the skillet for even cooking and browning. If using a smaller skillet, cook the chicken wings in two batches.Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings (Canh Ga Sot Ngot) | recipe from runawayrice.com

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper

Sauce:

Garnish:

Instructions

Preparing the Chicken

  1. Transfer the chicken wings into a large colander. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp salt. Rub the salt onto the chicken and then rinse well with cold water. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and transfer into a large bowl.

  2. Add the garlic powder, salt and ground black pepper to the chicken wings and toss together. Set aside and continue with the next steps.

Preparing the Garnishes

  1. Chop the green onion stems. (Save the white onion root for another recipe.) Cut the lime into wedges. Set the chopped green onions and lime wedges aside for now.

Making the Sauce

  1. In a measuring cup, combine the plum sauce, Hoisin sauce, mirin wine, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes.
  2. Heat a large skillet over Medium heat. Add the chicken wings and cook on the first side for 8 minutes. Flip the pieces over and cook on the other side for another 8 minutes. For the last 3-4 minutes, increase the heat to Medium High and sear the chicken to a golden brown. (The total cooking time is 18-20 minutes.)
  3. In a large wok, add the sauce prepared earlier and bring to a boil over Medium High heat. Add the cooked chicken wings into the sauce. Combine together coating the chicken in the sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Continue rotating the chicken during this time to layer the sauce. Remove from the heat.

Serving

  1. Transfer the Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings onto a large plate. Sprinkle with the chopped green onions. Add the lime wedges to the plate. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy the wings while warm!
  2. Refrigerate any remaining portions and enjoy within 3-4 days.

    Hello chi Trang, chicken wing is my family’s favorite! I am always on the hunt for a good recipe and yours ranks right up there with simple and yummy recipe. I’ve tried it a few days ago and my little boy ( he’s 17 so not little any more) anh husband gave a thumb up! I’m planning to make this again for a gathering and I was wondering if I can bake the wings and at what temperature instead since I’ll be fixing other dishes as well so time is of essence. Thank you!

      Hi Ann,
      I am so thrilled you hear you and your family enjoyed this recipe! Thank you for trying my recipe and sharing your comments. Great question and baking the wings is a wonderful option to pan-frying. Bake the wings at 400 F for 45-50 minutes. Use a wire rack and rotate the wings for even browning. Another tasty option is grilling the wings and brushing the sauce on top during the last few minutes. Have a wonderful get-together and wishing you good eats!
