Mum’s cookbook: Peppery chicken wings

Peppery chicken wingsEveryone loves a great chicken wing particularly during summer at barbeques, get-togethers and over a pint of beer. The best accompaniment during the sizzling hot days in my opinion.

It is also a versatile ingredient that could be grilled, baked, pan-fried or deep-fried marinated sweet, savory or whatever mishmash taste you could think of. In Southeast Asia, we prefer them spicy and strong to tickle our taste buds where every mouthful will burst into a myriad of scrumptious flavors.

So today, I would like to share our family recipe for hot peppery chicken wings that we absolutely dig. To whet out appetite, the garlicky spicy smell wafting out of the kitchen when the wings are cooked is out of this world. When we sink our teeth into the meat, there is extra crisp from the onions and garlic.

We typically use a turbo broiler to brown and crisp our wings to perfection, but you could also grill or bake it in the oven.

If you love your spices or crave for an extra oomph in your dishes, this recipe will not fail to impress.

1. Roughly chop onions (or shallots), garlic into dice
2. Mix all the ingredients well with the chicken wings.
3. Leave marinated wings at room temperature for an hour.
4. Bake wings till golden brown at 220 degree Celsius for 20 to 30 minutes. (While baking half way through, turn the wings around to brown both sides.)

For best results, marinate wings overnight in the refrigerator.
