Want some chicken wing goodness but not the hassle? This simple Honey & Ginger Chicken Wing recipe will simply fixed it. Anyone can make this! No cooking skill required for this recipe, it all comes down to preparing it and letting the oven do the job.
Got the idea of preparing this dish when I was back in Malaysia for Chinese New Year. I didn’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, rather I want to spend my day with my family at home and enjoy the company together. I definitely miss my family, miss being home and my mommy’s cooking! Eating out when you are away from home sucks. Hands down that your own mother is The Best Cook, despite all the fancy restaurant out there. Mother’s simple home cooked food will always be the preferred choice for all or most of us. Those living abroad will feel me. It can be challenging at times, when you are so used to the environment and culture back home. Home is just different. Living abroad also helps ‘grow’ me as a person, it is satisfying at times when you know you’ve come out of your comfort zone and is surviving or at least still surviving. This is just part of life once you are out to the working world.
20-25 chicken wing (own preference)
2 tbsp grated ginger
5 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
5 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil (optional)
chopped chili padi (optional)
chopped spring onion (optional)
Sauce for glazing
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
1. Put all the marinating ingredient onto the chicken wing to marinate it. Use your hands or tongs to coat the chicken wing entirely with the marinate.
2. Once the chicken is entirely coated with the marinate, place a plastic cling over it and place it in the fridge over 1-2 hours. For stronger full flavors let it marinate overnight.
3. Heat your oven and place the chicken wing over the wire rack.
4. Cook your chicken wing in the oven over 180C for 15 minutes until it is entirely cooked.
5. For thorough glazing on the chicken wing, turn the chicken when its brown on one side and brush some of the glazing sauce over it and let it cook. Continue doing this until you are satisfied with the glazing on the chicken wing. Remember to place a pan underneath the chicken wing to avoid making a messy when the chicken wing drip.
5. Serve it while its still hot.
