For the sticky wings:
- 100g cornflour
- 1 tbsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. pepper
- 1kg chicken wings
- Low-calorie cooking spray
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)
- 2 tbsp. ginger (grated)
- 4 tbsp. light soy sauce
- 4 tbsp. dark soy sauce
- 3 tbsp. sweet soy sauce
- 4 tbsp. Sugar-Free Sauce (Sweet Chilli)
For the healthy slaw:
- 1 red cabbage (finely shredded)
- 4 carrots (grated)
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- First, preheat the oven to 180°C.
- In a large bowl, make the coating for the wings by adding the cornflour, salt, and pepper and mixing well. Then add each chicken wing to the mixture and make sure to turn it about so that it’s fully coated in flour.
- Place each wing on a baking tray that’s been sprayed with low-calorie cooking spray or greased with coconut oil. Then cook the chicken wings for 50 minutes, turning halfway.
- Meanwhile, prepare the healthy slaw by adding the finely shredded red cabbage to a large bowl. Add the carrot, salt, lemon juice, and sesame oil — then toss with a pair of forks to make sure everything is mixed well and evenly coated in the dressing. Set aside.
- Once the chicken wings are cooked, remove them from the oven and place to one side while you prepare the sticky Asian sauce. Place a large saucepan or wok over a medium heat, then add the sesame oil, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sweet chilli Sugar-Free Sauce.
- Mix well and let simmer until the sauce thickens and bubbles. Then add your cooked chicken wings — turning them with tongs or a spoon to make sure they are all properly coated. Leave for a minute or two, then remove from the pan.
- Stack the chicken wings and serve with a bowl of healthy slaw!
