    1. In an electric frying pan or a large frying pan over medium heat, mix together the water, sugar, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, wine vinegar and garlic until smooth and the sugar has dissolved. Place the wings into the sauce, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Uncover and simmer until the wings are tender and the sauce has thickened, about 30 more minutes, spooning sauce over wings occasionally. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    I decided to read several reviews before making, they inspired me to change the sugar amount from half to a third of a cup, still quite sweet so I would probably go for a quarter cup next making. I also changed white to brown sugar and white to balsamic vinegar. I fried the garlic a little and then added chicken to just brown slightly. I then simmered the wings for around an hour by which time the sauce had virtually completely evaporated which surprised me as I felt sure I'd need to put in oven to dry off the wings, not necessary at all. Very tasty will definately make again. Might add some chilli to it next time. Just an idea.  -  25 May 2017


    The only reason I am only rating this at 4 stars and not 5 stars is because the sauce is SUPPER SWEET. I am going to play around with the amount of sugar & honey, but the overall flavor is great. I ended up using chicken breats (rather than wings). I cut each chicken breasts into 4 pieces and cooked the chicken in the sauce for about 15 minutes. Took the chicken out of the sauce (covered to keep warm) and then cranked up the heat, for about another 10-15 minutes, to thicken the sauce (be sure to stir more frequently as the sauce gets thinker).  -  26 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yummy and sticky. Excellent taste and I kept gong back for more along with everyone else. I made the recipe exactly as written. I did start with frozen chicken wings so I simmered them with the cover on about 50 minutes and without the cover about 40 minutes. I will definitely use this recipe over and over again.  -  15 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
