About the recipe
Who doesn’t like a wing night? I’ve always liked them but I was always torn because getting ones as take-out can be expensive and my body doesn’t really tolerate deep-fried food, and the ones you bake at home weren’t as crispy as I wished and they made a mess. I kind of gave up on them until I got my hands on an air fryer. Making my own sauces allows me to be creative and season them differently every time! Today I share with you my smoky and sticky honey garlic sauce.Jump to Recipe
- Chicken wings are a must-have at my house. I usually buy a 2kg bag and keep it in the freezer. I thaw them, as needed, for our wing nights!
- Worcestershire sauce is a condiment most people have heard of before, probably because of how difficult of a word it is to pronounce, rather than how you can use it. In this recipe, it gives this sauce a smoky flavour. Use Worcestshire sauce in any of your meat marinades!
- Use this sauce with other protein sources. You don’t have to use this sauce on chicken wings. You can use it in a stirfry, with chicken, tofu or tempeh.
- Make it vegan by replacing the honey with maple syrup and Worcestershire sauce with liquid smoke.
