What Is Sweet Chili Sauce?

Sweet chili sauce is a popular Asian condiment and I have to tell you, we use it all the time. Our boys add it to stir fry recipes, fried rice and even certain soup recipes!

Even though it says “chili” it is more of a sweet sauce, not spicy. There is a hint of spice to it, but you’re going to find that the sweet flavors overtake the spiciness.

So let’s talk about the sauce on these wings for a minute here. It’s just a few ingredients – honey, sweet chili sauce, teriyaki glaze and soy sauce. All things we always seem to have in our refrigerator so it couldn’t be easier to make!

When these wings come out of the slow cooker you’re going to brush the sauce all over them and then pop them under the broiler to crisp them up.

After the broiler, get another coat of sauce on the wings and serve. With lots of napkins.

Don’t even think about the napkins until the end, when you’re done eating. Just keep eating because these chicken wings are so saucy you’ll go through too many. The important part here is how many you can get before your family or friends get to them first.

    Hello. My broiler is temporarily out but I would love to make this for the game Sunday. Can i skip that step or bake for a few minutes after I spread sauce on wings? Any tips would be great. Thank you????

      I would crank your oven up then to 450-475, place the chicken wings on the top rack and cook for a few minutes until the skin gets slightly crispy.

    Hello! Wings sound great but can you crock pot this sauce with chicken breasts? Looking to meal prep with the Thai chili sauce and chicken breasts. Thanks for your help!

    1. Dan

      We have made them both ways to test the recipe and both work just as well. It just depends on the time that you have!

    Best wing sauce I’ve ever had. Used Thai sweet chili because that’s all I had. Deep fried the chicken wings and made sauce on stove. It’s delicious. Thanks for sharing.
