These sweet and sour fried chicken wings are party food essentials.

From the popular blog Adventures in Cooking comes our favorite poultry book in recent memory. Adventures in Chicken helps take the world’s most beloved meat from “been there, done that” to “I can’t wait to cook tonight!” Join author Eva Kosmas in reinventing this humble bird as a thing of true beauty. Invite chicken to the party and watch that hungry crowd descend upon these sweet and sour fried chicken wings.

There’s something particularly wonderful about the resounding crunch that accompanies a deep-fried chicken wing, especially when it’s coated in a homemade sweet-and-sour sauce. The key sweet components in the sauce are honey and ketchup, which play off the tangy vinegar and lime juice. Garlic, sweet bell pepper, and green onions are tossed into the sauce to add a bit of crisp freshness and flavor to this simple and satisfying appetizer.
