Thai Style Chicken Wings

I saw these on How Sweet It Is and knew I had to have them.  They did not disappoint and have been a weekend  staple for us.  There is nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon than watch TV and eat chicken wings…. After the gym of course, (cough cough).

Thai Style Chicken Wings

Adapted from How Sweet It Is

2.5 pounds chicken wings
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
1 Tbsp. Siracha
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup lite canned coconut milk
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon-sized knob of ginger, grated
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
4 green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 375°F. Pat chicken wings completely dry then season with salt and pepper. Combine chili sauce, Siracha, vinegar, coconut milk, sugar, garlic, ginger, peanut butter, soy sauce and lime juice, mixing with a fork.

Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Add chicken wings and sear, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove wings and set on a plate, then reduce heat to medium-low. Add chili sauce mixture and bring to boil.

Let simmer for 1-2 minutes, whisking constantly.

Add wings back into the sauce, tossing to coat. Place skillet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and spoon the sauce over top of the wings, then garnish with peanuts, cilantro and onions.
