How Sweet & Sour Chicken Wings became a thing
Sweet & Sour Chicken wings began a lifetime ago, here in hometown West Roger’s Park Chicago, as a favorite on Simchat Torah along with Spaghetti with Meat. This recipe was originally published on October 28, 2012, and was later published in my book “Shabbos Under Pressure – Cooking with Pressure = Pressure Free Cooking” adapted as an Instant Pot/Electric Pressure Cooker recipe. While the times have changed my love for this recipe and the memories it elicits are still warm in my heart. Here’s the story.

Sweet & Sour Chicken Wings are great for Football Season Too!!!
And life goes on…
Here’s the recipe for Sweet & Sour Chicken Wings
These wings are great for a party, Simchat Torah post hakafot oneg, or these wings would also be awesome for the current football season for your huge football parties – the perfect sticky finger food for the guys (and gals) who are glued to the TV for the season. You could stir fry all the ingredients in a large wok or skillet in the late morning and let it simmer until game time. Your guests and family will not only be super-fans of football but you as well!!
- 5 pounds chicken wings, cleaned
- 2 cups finely diced white onions (fine dice blade on the Hindy Chopper)
- 6 cloves crushed garlic, or 6 frozen cubes
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 30 ounces tomato sauce
- 40 ounces (1 jar) sweet and sour sauce (duck sauce)
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- In a large wok or skillet, heat the canola oil.
- Sauté the garlic and onions until soft.
- Add the chicken wings, tomato sauce, sweet and sour sauce and white pepper.
- Heat on medium-high until hot and bubbling, stirring constantly.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for at least 1 ½ hours until the sauce has reduced considerably and is very thick.
- Serve hot with crusty bread and lots of napkins!
Feel free to halve this recipe. It makes a lot of wings, although I guarantee they’ll be a huge hit and you won’t regret making the whole recipe!
If you have issues with onions, you can use 2 cups of green onions or 2 tablespoons of asafoetida. If you don’t have either, feel free to leave the onions out, but it will effect the flavor of the wings.
If you have a garlic issue, please feel free to substitute garlic oil for the canola oil, and leave out the garlic cloves.
