Thai Honey - Garlic Chicken Wings
This is a version that I came up with after I became bored with just the regular honey glazed wings I was so used to seeing everywhere. You will need a 12 step program to stop eating these ! My husband will testify to this. You can't stop at one & I warn you...these are highly addictive. Enjoy.
thai garlic chili sauce
mushroom soya sauce available
garlic ( finely minced )
toasted sesame seeds ( white or black )
Take the chicken wings & split them . Discard the tips . I try to buy them already done . Next in a large bowl or extra large ziplock bag , add the vegetable oil, half the lime juice, garlic, ginger, thai garlic chili sauce, & salt & pepper. Mix ingredients together. Next add the chicken wings to marinade . Place covered in the bowl , or place the sealed ziplock bag in the refrigerator. Let sit for at least 1 hour. ( It's better if it's left overnight.)
Once the chicken has marinated for 1 hour , remove from the refrigerator & if not already in a ziplock bag , tranfer to one. Add the flour to the bag & shake the wings until they are thoroughly coated. ( No wet spots. )
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit or 200 Celsius . Use a large baking sheet & lightly oil. Next shake off the excess flour on the wings & arrange them on the baking sheet. Try not to crowd the pan . Bake for 25 - 30 minutes on each side until golden.
When the wings are baking for the 2nd half hour get a sauce pan ready for the glaze. Add to the saucepan the rice wine vinegar, the rest of the garlic , ginger, lime , & thai garlic chili sauce. Next , add the brown sugar & honey & whisk together. On medium high heat , slowly bring to a boil. Once the glaze starts to boil, bring the heat down to simmer for 10 minutes then turmn off the heat & let the glaze cool down slightly.
When the wings are done take them out of the oven & slowly pour the glaze to coat all the wings. Place UNCOVERED in the oven ( heat off ) & let them sit for about 3-5 minutes until glaze is absorbed a little bit. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional ) & serve immediately with rice or fries or nothing at all . Take them for lunch the next day too. But you may have to share. Enjoy.
