:: Asian Chicken Wings

July 24, 2008 at 9:46 am 17 comments

There doesn’t seem to be a huge amount of interest in the food styling demonstration, but I’ll be working with Erica for the photo’s in the book, so maybe I can film a few bits and stick them up here.

Is it me or is the weather at the moment causing extreme drowsiness?  Maybe not, maybe it’s having to work when it feels like everyone else is on holidays- maybe it’s a mix.  Well I’ll just have to put up with it, after all it’s only a few more weeks and were heading back over to Sweden again.  Sofie’s dad arrived last night and is staying with us for the week, so we’ll be doing some sight seeing this weekend and driving cross country to Galway.  If you have any suggestions on where to bring a tourist in Galway please let me know!

I have been trawling the world wide web for international food blogs, and I wanted to share just a few of the ones that caught my eye:

Bitchin Camero– Mel is from Miami, and has some really great pictures, and the recipe’s to match.

Kitchen Confit– Is written by three bloggers from Nashville, Tennassee, I love their post about “Fire Pit Roasted Oysters”.

A Cat In The Kitchen– A great little Swedish blog- check out the cake buffet!

Dinner’s For A Year– I love the idea of a BBQ turkey.

And via Mulley.net, Lidl Treats– How to get the best out of shopping at Lidl!

Inspired by my recent trip to the Chinese Supermarket, this is another one of the snacks I made for the party last weekend.  It’s kind of a mix between BBQ and sweet and sour sauce, but top it with finely sliced spring onions and sesame seeds, and you’ll make your intentions clear!

Asian Chicken Wings

  1. 12 Chicken Wings.
  2. 1 Cup of Chinese Sweet Chili Sauce (looks like tomato paste)
  3. The Juice Of One Lemon.
  4. 1 Tbsp of Worcestershire Sauce.
  5. 2 Cloves of Garlic Minced.
  6. 1 Thumb of Ginger Minced.
  7. 2 Tablespoons of Honey
  8. 1 Tsp of Chinese 5 Spice powder.
  9. 1 Tsp of Sesame Oil.
  10. 1 Tsp of Cornflour.
  11. Spring Onions and Sesame Seeds.

In a large roasting tray combine the ingredients with the chicken wings.  Cover with cling film and allow to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 oC/ 390 oF/ Gas Mark 6.

Bang the Chicken Wings into the oven on the top rack and cook for approx 45-60 mins, turning them halfway through.  Serve straight away topped with sliced spring onions and toasted sesame seeds.

    great recipe! just had it for dinner. i used golden syrup instead of honey, and just reduced the quantity a little bit. i think it gives it a bit of a richer flavour than honey, but then again, i am rather a devotee of golden syrup!put them on some cellophane noodles, with sugar snap peas on the side… delicious!thanks, will definitely be making this again!

    Hey Ruby!Thats so great to hear! What A great idea actually I must try it with some chicken breasts and noodles! Like the idea of the golden syrup- I’m sure it would be a lot richer.Thrilled to hear you tried it! πŸ™‚
