  1. Chill a metal bowl in the freezer.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add hot sauce and sugar to garlic; cook and stir until mixture is reduced and bubbling, about 5 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook wings in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Remove wings from hot oil using a slotted spoon and transfer to the chilled bowl. Add garlic-hot sauce to wings and toss to coat. Transfer coated wings to a serving platter and garnish with green onion.

fried in peanut oil, outstanding

Great flavor, and not real spicy. I added a bit of cornstarch to thicken this, and I ended up adding some ginger... but it would have been fine as written.

So good.. Tasted like a sweet Asian sauce. I made a double recipe of the sauce and saved the extra for another night. wasn't spicy at all. Granted... I used Frank's Red Hot WING sauce instead of...

Amazing recipe and so simple

Delicious! I don't think I used quite as much garlic as called for, but I think I was close (I didn't measure it). Great sticky, spicy, sweet flavor combo...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sh...
