“I promise you that this is no gimmick. The spicy, sticky, and peanut-based sauce base delivers a distinct chicken wing-eating experience. If you're a fan of satay, you will enjoy this approach.”

To the people complaining about the peanut butter: don't let the name fool you, this is Thai-flavored. It's meant to have a strong peanut taste, and if you don't like that you should be looking for another recipe. I love the sauce just as written. It gives the wings a lot of meatiness that they normally don't have. I've made these for regular dinners, parties, and functions, and they've always been a huge hit! When I put them alongside more traditional wings, this is always the plate that runs out first. The only thing I change is that, after a lot of experimenting, I've found 30 minutes of initial cooking (turning half-way through), and then 5 minutes afterward gives me a much juicer product.



To Oesi: I would use a mildly flavored jelly, such as apple jelly (not grape/berry or your appelstroop) and a tsp of chopped fresh hot chiles and a few drops of vinegar to achieve the flavor or jalapeno jelly.



I try this recipes it's délicious but a lot of peanut butter
