Baked Extra-Spicy Hot Wings

July 5, 2011
I’ve never had really good hot wings. All the hot wings I’ve had in restaurants are not spicy at all. As I’ve confessed before, I need like heat in my food. The ones that I’ve had tasted mostly of barbeque sauce which sucks cos I only like barbeque sauce with my McNuggets. So when my friend and I discovered this small stall at Kallang selling all sorts of hot sauces (and a lot of Latin American ingredients like this which I’ve been looking for everywhere, but that’s for another post!) we both decided almost immediately that we would make our own hot wings that were you know, actually hot.

And thus, these Baked Extra-Spicy Hot Wings were born.


These 2 bottles made up our hot sauce combo. We really lucked out in finding that hole-in-the-wall shop because it’s very hard to find hot sauce in Singapore. We don’t even have Sriracha in supermarkets and we’re an Asian country for goodness sake! Thailand is like, right there above us!

Oh and that’s my buddy Amalina, also known as the couscous hater.


Baked Extra-Spicy Hot Wings *inspired by here and here*
1kg chicken wings (i think we had about 30 wings and drummetes)
Garlic Powder
Vegetable Oil
½ cup butter
¼ cup Habanero hot sauce*
¼ cup Chipotle hot sauce*
1 heaping tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp honey

*obviously you can use ½ cup of just one kind of hot sauce, we did a combo because we didn’t have enough from just one bottle. our survival instincts just kicked in!*


-preheat the oven to 400f/200c

-add salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder to taste to the chicken (we winged it hohoho) and mix well
-add just enough vegetable oil to coat the wings, mix well
-transfer the wings to a large plastic bag, add slightly more than enough flour
-“massage” the bag well, ensuring that there are no wet spots on the wings
-line a sheet pan with foil and place the wings on it
-bake for 30mins, flip the wings and finish baking for another 30mins

-once the wings are done, make the sauce by adding all the ingredients to a saucepan

-cook over medium heat until slightly bubbly

-place the cooked wings in a big bowl and pour the sauce over it

-cover the bowl with a plate and shake the bowl to ensure even coating of the sauce


Most importantly, try not to salivate as you try to plate it as prettily as possible. We served it with (*gasp* storebought) ranch dressing and celery sticks.

Guys. GUYS. Look at that.


These were beyond delicious. It burns, but only in the good way.

They were definitely spicy but very well seasoned as well, so it was not just heat. We were both surprised at how crispy and juicy the wings were because they sure didn’t look it when we first took them out of the oven. La-La-LAAAHVED it. Evidence pictured. Try these now!

    These look so tasty and super spicy! I may have to make them to convince the hubs that baled wings can be as goo as fried!

    They were good. But not all that spicy. Nice crunch from the breading but I’ll bump up the heat next time
