  1. Easy and interesting sauce. I think much depends on the marmalade and hoisin sauce you use and whether you like marmalade in the first place...
  2. The best wing sauce I have EVER tried or made. I use it on drumsticks wings chicken tenders everything! Thanks.
  3. This was very good BUT I would highly recommend you taste it before adding the soy sauce. (By the way the video and the recipe on his website calls for a TEASPOON of soy sauce not a tablespoon.) If your Asian chili pepper sauce has a lot of salt like mine does you won't want - Read more ...
  4. I cooked the chicken wings my usual way- barely seasoned and naked on a lipped cookie sheet in the oven at 425 for about an hour. Then I made this sauce and tossed the wings.

I found this video by Chef John & made them off the video directions, replaying it several times to get the gist. (2nd time see recipe) In the sauce, I also - Read more ...
  9. yummers!! i didn't have marmalade but used a small can of mandarin orange slices. i put the sauce on boneless skinless chicken thighs and baked them. i boiled some vermicelli with leeks snap peas....just a dash of fish sauce...and put the chicken on top....sooooo goood!
  10. Great recipe...I added 4 cloves of fresh garlic. I think what really makes this over the top is...what you do to the chicken before the sauce.
