Buffalo wings

I wanted a simple yet accesible recipe for the New year. What more can I ask for than this one? I tried it for Christmas and my friends raved that it tasted like bonchon chicken.

You can also make the sauce and use it for dipping and coating chicken fingers

1/2 kilo chicken wings

2 tsp cornstarch
4 tsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup chili garlic sauce (optional if you have kids)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp minced garlic

---dissolve cornstarch in rice wine vinegar in a small bowl
-- combine the vinegar solution with the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over medium/low heat. Heat mixture stirring often until sauce reaches a boil, then  remove from heat. Let cool
--- to use sauce, pour 1/4 cup over cooked chicken wings (or nuggets) and toss gently

*note: I coated the chicken wings with cornstarch and deep fried till done

** also, depending on your kids, you can omit the chili or reduce the amount. Some kids don't like it spicy.

Hope you enjoy the recipe! Happy New year!
