Singapore BBQ Chicken Wings with Chilli Dip – 新加坡烤鸡翅

We replicate this crazily popular hawker dish using an oven at home! The secret to achieve the sticky sweet finish on the wings is to baste the wings and cover it with foil for 10 minutes in final stage of grilling.
These sweet-savoury Chinese-style sticky BBQ wings goes so well with our calamansi chilli dip. Seriously, we can’t stop eating, dipping and licking our fingers!
