Caramelized Chicken Wings

These caramelized chicken wings are spicy and sticky. It’s absolutely tasty when you marinate overnight and bake it on the next day. Don’t worry, you may also fry the chicken wings, if the oven is not available. For the chili sauce, you can buy any bottled sauce in the supermarket (sriracha is good too, if you haven’t tried). Happy cooking!
