We were dining at The Soup Restaurant the other day and they were having this promotion for their Samsui ginger sauce. Hubby was conjured to buy 2 bottles, though I gave him the “why-when-your-wife-can-make-the-sauce” look. Well, never mind, saves me some efforts in my cooking. Saw the bottles lying around the other day and thought of using that as a marinade and do up some chicken wings. Hehehe… by now, if you have been following my blog, you would be convinced my love and lust for chicken wings (^-^)
I started mixing the condiments and sauces based on gut feeling and “aggaration” but took efforts in remembering the quantity so that I could later record down the recipe, if it was a success (^-^) And I was so glad that the wings turned out yummy! Despite using airfryer, the chicken wings were so juicy and tender. We finished all of them at dinner, and everyone gave a satisfied grin as a testimony to the yumminess of the chicken wings.
Below is the recipe. Please feel free to adjust according to your preference. I have used the airfryer but I am sure you can get the same results using oven to bake too. Hope you will like this recipe as much as we do. Bon appetite!
1 kg chicken wings, washed and drained
lemon juice, to drizzle (about 1/2 a lemon)
2 tbs of ginger paste *I used the Samsui Ginger Sauce from The Soup Restaurant
3 tbs light soy sauce
3 1/2 tbs honey
pepper, to taste
1. Pat dry the drained chicken wings.
2. Marinade the chicken wings, rubbing well with the marinade. Leave in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
3. Preheat your airfryer (if using oven, preheat at 200 deg cel) at 180 deg cel. Place in the chicken wings and drizzle some lemon juice over. Bake/airfry at each side for 10-12 min. Turn over and bake/airfry for another 10-12min.
See? It’s simple and fuss free, right? (^^) No oil was needed as I supposed the ginger sauce already has the oil in it. If you are using homemade ginger paste, you might need to add some oil to the marinade and/or brush oil on the wings before baking/airfrying.
Hmm … I think we can do this for our next BBQ too (^-^) Perhaps I can have a variety of chicken wings (sounds like Seoul Garden or those BBQ buffet eateries). I can have my Thai Lemongrass Chicken Wings (Just realized that I haven’t posted this recipe which is my fav!), Honey Citron Yuzu Chicken Wings, Gula Melaka Glazed Chicken Wings and many more!!!
