This outrageously delicious SWEET STICKY SPICY CHICKEN is everything you want sticky wings to be. It’s full of flavors, a little spicy, sweet, and super easy to make either on a grill or in the oven. Just a great balance of sweet, salty, and spice. You won’t mind licking your fingers!

I love Baked Chicken Wings but I also love the flavor and convenience of cooking them on the grill, too! No messy clean up at the end. And my favorite part is the added layer of smokiness that it adds to the overall taste of the chicken.

So for today, I’m bumping up this oldie but goodie Sweet Sticky Spicy Chicken recipe for everyone to see.  This chicken dinner recipe just comes right on time since it’s already summer.

This is truly a great way of enjoying chicken wings. And they are quite easy to grill too! Now get ready to fire up the grill for these chicken wings because they are simply AHA-MAZING!

Caribbean Sweet & Sticky Hot Wings

Spicy Chicken Sauce

Moist, tender, crispy, and SUPER flavorful to the bone with or without the sauce.

But honestly, you’d be curious to try what it’d be when it comes to this sticky sweet spicy hot sauce. Thank goodness, that I have these genes for high heat tolerance coz I just can’t imagine my life without being able to enjoy all those spicy flavored food.

If you’d ask me, the hot & spicy sauce is actually the heart of this chicken recipe. It gets its undeniable flavors from these components below.

Caribbean Homemade Pepper Sauce– a sweet and spicy kind of hot sauce with a fruity tropical spin to it 

Honey and Brown Sugar – for that beautiful caramelization and sweetness

Ketchup – to balance out the sweetness and add a bit of savory flavor into it

Lemon – that provides a phenomenal finishing flavor touch to these already delicious wings

Can You Use Any Hot Sauce?

I know, it’s not that every day that you come across a fruity sweet kind of hot sauce just like my homemade Caribbean Pepper Sauce. So use your favorite brand of hot sauce, if you have any.

Can You Make it in Advance?

Absolutely! You can actually grill them up during the weekend, store it in the fridge for 3-4 days. On the day of serving, simply make the chicken sauce and reheat the chicken in a skillet or microwave until warm. Lastly, coat the chicken well with the sauce.

What to Serve with Sticky Spicy Chicken?

Our sweet sticky spicy chicken sauce also doubles up as a dip in this recipe. You can either coat the chicken in it or serve it as a side. It makes a fabulous finger food for sharing with Plantain Fries or this Caribbean-style Coleslaw.

Or you may also serve it as a main dish with plain or fried rice for dinner along with vegetables like broccoli and carrots. 

However you serve it, be sure to have plenty of napkins ready on the table or just shamelessly suck your finger clean!

How to Make Sweet Sticky Spicy Chicken

 

Chicken Wing SauceAdd butter to a medium or small skillet and melt. Then add garlic and chopped green onions then sauté for about 1minute or more. Then add ketchup, honey, brown sugar, lemon juice, hot sauce, and Maggi Sauce. Simmer for about 2 minutes. In a separate small bowl, thoroughly mix the cornstarch with some of the juice or water. Stir in the cornstarch mixture into the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Adjust heat to low and simmer for about 10mins. You will then have a thick and sticky sauce. Adjust seasonings to taste. Let it cool. Wash chicken wings, if time permits let it dry out in the fridge for a couple of hours (about 3 or more). Do not cover. If short on time, dry wings with a paper towel or kitchen towel, then proceed with the next step.

Grilled Chicken WingsPlace the chicken in a large plate or bowl, lightly season with salt and black pepper, then mix with Jerk Spice and drizzle with oil (to prevent the chicken from sticking to the grill). When you are ready to grill, wipe down the grill and lightly oil. Preheat for medium heat. Or if using charcoal, fill it half full. Let it light up for about 25 or more minutes. Place chicken wings on the grill. Let them grill for approximately about 20-30 minutes, flipping every 3-4 minutes until they are golden brown. Remove and mix with sauce or serve on the side.

  4. Stir in the cornstarch mixture into the saucepan. Bring to a boil.

Grilled Chicken Wings

  1. Wash chicken wings, if time permits let it dry out in the fridge for a couple of hours (about 3 or more). Do not cover.

  2. If short on time, dry wings with paper towel or kitchen towel, then proceed with the next step.

  3. Place the chicken in a large plate or bowl, lightly season with salt and black pepper, then mix with Jerk Spice and drizzle with oil (to prevent chicken from sticking to the grill).

Recipe Notes

  1. If you are baking these instead of grilling, bake the chicken  425 degrees F for about 40 minutes. About 20 minutes on each side.
  2. Use any hot sauce you have as a substitute for the homemade Caribbean Pepper Sauce.
  3. You can also use drumsticks instead of wings. 
  4. Adjust the heat level to mild or heat seekers adjust to suit taste buds.
  5. I use my 18-inch charcoal grill. Low to moderate heat works best when grilling these wings. You can easily get control over the flames that way. And it helps render out the fat from the skin making it crispy.
  6. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
