Japanese sticky sesame chicken wings


Hey guys , how's your December so far ?! 

Me ?! So far , so good ! 

Dreaming of a new Canon dslr , actually *sigh* 

I've been meaning to bake cookies these past few days but cooking a much more hearty and substantial fare is much more tempting .

Blame the cold  and rainy weather .

It's not as if you can just serve only cookies for dinner , right ?!  lol

But then cookies for dinner sounds wonderful , maybe I'll bake some cookies tomorrow ....

Onto this dish , this is actually the second time that I made these sticky wings .

I always remind myself not to take photos of food especially when I'm hungry . 

Yup , cook , have a taste ,  take some photos then eat it asap but the first time was eat and not a taste test . The first batch of sticky wings was gone in a flash !

Hey , only 6 chicken wings and I was really , really hungry lol

These wings were really good - a delicious combination of sweet , spicy with a bit of tanginess and best of all , it's roasted not fried  ^___^ ''


Recipe adapted from Bill's Everyday Asian

Serves 8 ( I made half of the recipe with my slight modification in green ) 

1.5 kg chicken wings
1 tablespoon oil 
3 garlic cloves , crushed with the flat of a knife 4 cloves 
1 long red chilli . finely chopped 3 small red chillies 
4 tablespoons mirin
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoon sake I used a cooking sake
110 grams granulated sugar
juice of 1 lime
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds , toasted 

* Preheat oven to 200°C . Line a large roasting tray or baking sheet with parchment paper . Place the wings in the tray and roast for 35-40 I cooked mine for 50 minutes or until starting to turn brown . 

* Meanwhile , heat the oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat . Add the garlic and the chilli and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the garlic is turning golden . Add the mirin , soy sauce , sake , lime juice and sugar , cook for 5 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half .

* Remove chicken from the oven and pour over the sticky mirin mixture . Toss to coat and return to the oven , basting occasionally , for a further 15-20 minutes . Take out the sticky wings from the oven and scatter with sesame seeds . Serve hot .

  5. Hi Anne,
    We love roast chicken and wings are my favourite part! And these delicious wings would be gone in a flash too in my house!
    I hope Santa hears our secret dream (well, secret no more!) of a good camera! Mine has cellophane tape on some parts of it! Haha!
    But I'm not keeping my hopes high, I know that it will remain a dream! LOL! Hope your dream will come true! :)
