This stand out Chinese Sticky, Spicy Chicken is another better-than-takeout recipe you will be making over and over again!Take Me to the Recipe!
This recipe uses ingredients you probably have in your pantry. If you are dairy free or vegan you can use nut milk or other non-dairy milk. You can use corn starch instead of flour for gluten free.
I used chicken drum sticks but you could use wings, or thighs too. The thighs won’t be a crispy as the drums or wings but this sauce is so delicious you will want to use it on lots of different cuts. You could serve it as a sauce on the side with chicken breasts or pork tenderloin as well.
The crispiness comes from baking the drumsticks in a hot oven, coated with the flour and milk. You toss them in the sauce separately after they are cooked so the sauce doesn’t make the chicken soft.

I have to admit the dishes above are so tasty. Chinese Takeout is supposed to be a no-cook treat for the chef! When I am taking a night off from cooking Chinese is one of my favourite delivery foods. But if you live in an area where there are not Chinese takeout options or you want to make sure the dishes are healthy then this menu might be the answer to your Chinese food fix!
There are other Asian and Chinese inspired dishes on the site. Search on Chinese or Asian for more appetizers, rice variations, a lovely,moist Ginger Chicken en Papilotte. There were too many options to list them all.
