The Fiery Wings with loads of Chilies, Garlic & Sichuan Peppercorns


I promise, to all heat lovers, this recipe is finger licking good. It’s so good that you might even start sucking the dried chilies for the seasoning that are well coated over the chilies. Well that’s what I did ?.

This recipe is inspired by Sichuan Spicy Chicken (辣子鸡). The slightly numbing peppercorn and spicy chilies heighten the pleasure of this dish. You can add more chili powder for a higher heat intensity.

I used air fryer in this recipe to “fry” the wings and garlic. For those without air fryer, you can fry the wings and garlic using oil or even baked in the oven. Just that the latter will need a higher temperature of 250 degree celsius and a longer time. Baked until the skin of the wings turn golden brown. The rest of the steps will be the same.
