A Quick and Easy Recipe Using Thai Chili Sauce

Make this delicious Thai chili sauce at home using ingredients likely already in your pantry. It’s a quick and simple recipe that can be used on many different foods.

Chicken Wings

Thai chili sauce is a traditional sweet and spicy dipping sauce that can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores or online. Made with hot chilies, honey, vinegar and fish sauce for an intoxicating flavor profile.

This sauce is simple to make and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. You have the freedom to adjust the sweetness level according to your preferences, with more chili sauce for heat or less for sweetness.

Serve these chicken wings with rice and some green onions, or use them as a dipping sauce for chips or even top off your salad. They’re perfect for game day and sure to be a hit at your next gathering!

If you want to kick up the heat on these wings, try using habanero peppers in place of Thai chilies. Habanero peppers have a higher Scoville heat unit rating of 100,000-350,000 than their more mild counterparts.

For a sweeter dish, substitute the Thai chili sauce with brown sugar or honey. Additionally, you can add dried herbs such as oregano and thyme to the glaze for additional flavor.

To cook the wings, preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread out the wings onto a rimmed baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between each piece. Sprinkle them generously with salt, pepper and paprika on both sides before baking for around 20 minutes – turning them over halfway through for even browning.

Remove them from the oven and allow to cool for around 3-5 minutes before serving them. Doing this will help them remain crispy when dipped in sauce.

While the wings are baking, prepare the sticky sauce. Combine Thai chili sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, garlic, pepper and soy sauce in a saucepan over medium-low heat. After the sugar has dissolved, stir in cornstarch slurry then continue simmering on low until it thickens into a syrup consistency.

Serve the wings garnished with cilantro, onion slices and chilli flakes. You can also use any extra sauce as a dipping sauce if desired!

Making this sauce into an eggplant stir-fry recipe is an effortless way to create a dish that’s packed with flavor. It would be ideal at any dinner party, or as dinner for two or three people.

This sauce is created with vinegar, sugar, fish sauce, garlic and pepper flakes. Cornstarch then gets added for thickening as it cooks; you may even add sherry or some sherry wine for additional flavor!

This sauce can be used to enhance a variety of dishes, from fried fish to classic Thai fish cakes and vegetarian egg rolls. You could even coat grilled chicken wings or shrimp for an irresistibly spicy appetizer.

To make this recipe, you’ll need long, slender Japanese eggplant or Chinese eggplant (which are purple in color and have fewer seeds). These can be found at your local Asian market.

Before deep-frying the eggplants, soak them in a bowl of water for 15 minutes to prevent them from browning and absorbing too much oil. This helps the eggplant retain their vibrant purple hue while also keeping it from becoming bitter.

Heat up a small amount of oil in a skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot enough, add the eggplants in small batches and let them sear, turning occasionally until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan and transfer to a serving plate.

While the eggplant is cooking, prepare all other ingredients for the dish. To make the sauce, mix vinegar, sugar, water, fish sauce, sherry, garlic and pepper flakes together in a pot. Once this mixture boils, reduce the heat and stir in cornstarch until thickened.

Once the tofu has fried, you will toss it in Thai chili sauce. Be sure to stir the sauce until all of the tofu is coated evenly with it.

To serve, all you need is a bowl of rice and spoon. Garnish the dish with green onions, cilantro, and sesame seeds for an elegant touch. This quick yet nutritious weeknight dinner makes an ideal start!
