These hot and spicy wings are full of so much flavor and go perfectly with a cool ranch dip. They are the best party appetizer for game days, holiday celebrations or whenever you want hot wings. 

This recipe has an easy but exotic blend of spices that come from green curry paste and ground coriander. If you haven’t had green Thai curry, be warned that it can be very spicy. If you want all the same green curry flavor with less heat, check that your green curry paste is mild.

Both the green curry paste and the green hot sauce can be found in the Asian food section at most grocery stores. You can also use green Tabasco or a green hot sauce made with tomatillos (much milder). Fish sauce is also found in the Asian food aisle.

Easily make these wings ahead of time! Bake wings like normal and prepare the Thai Curry sauce on the side. Refrigerate the chicken wings and sauce in separate airtight containers for up to 1 day. On game day, bake the chicken wings at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes, or until hot. Toss in sauce and bake for 5 more minutes.

Like all spicy wings, these Curry Wings go great with Ranch Dressing to tame the heat. Or even more delicious option would be Indian Raita, a cool, creamy (easy!) Indian dip that tastes amazing with curry flavors. Serve them together for an impressive new appetizer your guests will love!

These wings are a delicious appetizer but you can also make them for an easy dinner. If you want to make Thai Curry Chicken Wings for dinner, serve them with White Rice or Cold Thai Noodle Salad, plus an easy veggie side dish like Sautéed Green Beans.
