A super easy and super lazy recipe – baked chicken wings!
Actually come to think of it, I never really bother to cook this when I was in Malaysia. Reason being I can easily find grilled chicken wings on hawker stalls but they are quite expensive per wing. Oh well, as the saying goes, “Absense makes the heart grew fonder”? Or perhaps what comes easy is never gold.
The supermarket here tend to sell chicken by their parts in boxes so readily chopped chicken wings is one of them. If I am lazy, I can also get the supermarket honey soy pre-marinade chicken wings and just oven them.
Anyway, I decided to be a little bit creative this time than just making the conventional honey soy chicken. I made my own lemongrass chicken wings with the following ingredients and steps:
- 2 lemongrass (white bits on the stalk only, chopped or blend with the other ingredients)
- 2 tablespoons of fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons of turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon of raw/brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of soya sauce
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- Marinade the wings with the ingredients overnight in fridge.
- Bake the wings over 180C degrees for 45 mins using fan-force setting.
- Take the wings out and brush the sauce on the wings intermittently.
There you have it, lemongrass chicken wings – no frying required at all! The wings were surprisingly juicy and yummilicious.
