  6. In a separate bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients.

  7. Heat a saucepan and add a tbsp oil over low-medium heat.

  8. Pour the sauce mixture into the pan and bring it to a boil.

  9. Add the seared chicken wings into the saucepan and toss them to coat evenly. Allow them to cook for a few minutes.

  10. Pour the cornflour slurry into the pan, stir and cook until the sauce thickens slightly.

  11. Adjust the seasoning to your preference and then, turn off the heat.

  12. Serve the chicken wings hot, garnished with chopped spring onions.
