During Vesak Day?! My significant other and I were watching the news report on Buddhists releasing life during this significant day of theirs while munching happily on our chicken wings. So maybe this chicken wasn’t fated to be released. After all, Buddhists believe in fate too right?
- Chicken wing: 4 pieces, washed, pat dry on towel
- Lime cordial: 2 tbsp
- Light soya sauce: 2 tbsp
- Ginger: finger length, finely chopped (about 2 tbsp)
- Honey: 2 tbsp
- Tomato sauce: 2 tbsp
- Chilli powder: 2 tbsp
- Sesame paste: 1 tbsp
- Mixture 1: Mix lime cordial, soya sauce and ginger together.
- Marinate chicken with mixture 1 for 1 hr. Turn chicken around after first 1/2 hr to ensure even marination.
- Mixture 2: Mix honey, tomato sauce, chilli powder and sesame paste together.
- Coat marinated chicken wings evenly with mixture 2.
- Place wings on dual height rack in a convection oven and roast at 170 Degrees Celsius for 10min.
- Turn wings over, coat again with mixture 2 and roast at 180 Degrees Celsius for 8min.
- Turn wings over, coat again with mixture 2 and roast for at 190 Degrees Celsius for last 8min.
- Serve hot.
- Marinate chicken wings in mixture 1 for as long as possible, ideally overnight! Nevertheless, the result of a 1hr marinate turned out equally splendid.
- Place another aluminum foil tray beneath the rack to catch the dripping oil and sauce from the wings.
- The increase of heat at 8min intervals allows for the flesh to be cooked first before the skin turns crisp and brown.
