HOUSTON Food truck Friday is all about finger lickin good chicken! Put all pretenses aside, and get ready to surrender to the mess.

We caught up with Sticky s Chicken, the newest food truck in Houston at Midtown Mobile Cuisine, Houston s newest food park. Patsy Vivares launched the truck to showcase her father s favorite dish a secret recipe he created after eating at a wing joint.

After he ate, he came out and was like I can do something better than this! Patsy explained.

That was ten years ago. Now, the whole family s in on it. Patsy s brother Benson and Mom, Joy, man the kitchen. The secret family recipe starts with twice-fried chicken wings. It ends with a generous dousing of tangy, sweet, garlicky sauce a tribute to the Vivares Filipino heritage. The wings live up to their name the sticky sauce will have you licking your fingers.

The flavor is kind of like a Teriyaki slash.. it s kind of sweet, and it maybe has like kind of a hit of Asian twist to it, customer Christian Dipasupil explains.

The family has no formal culinary training ( We just like to eat ), but their passion for food comes out in their signature dish.

This is not just about money; this is like from my heart. It s amazing, Ceferino Vivares, the family patriarch explains.

So you can bet, Sticky s Chicken will stick around.

It s everything that you would want in chicken wings, says customer Lan Tran.
