Twice-baked Thai-peanut chicken wings



I've been meaning to post this last month but the mind is willing but the hand er the body is not lol 

Anyway , looking for another tasty chicken wings recipe ?

Look no further ! These Thai-inspired wings , which taste like a mild grilled satay are easy to make with big flavour payoff . Because these wings are baked not deep-fried so less mess to clean up afterwards . I'm pretty sure that most ingredients are already in your kitchen pantry .

The original recipe calls for 3 pounds of wings but I used only 2 so there's some extra sauce . I simmered the extra sauce , toss in some some boiled fresh ramen noodles and yup , a very satisfying peanut noodles  to go with these baked wings . Kind of reminds me of satay Mie goreng .....

I added some Thai chilli sauce for a kick because you can never go wrong with it .


Recipe adapted here  

2 pounds chicken wings , combination of mid-wings and drumettes
2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/3 cup coconut milk 
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter  
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons Thai chilli sauce

* Rinse and pat dry wings thoroughly , season with coarse sea salt , set aside for an hour .

* Place grill 4-inches / 2nd rack from the top . Line the lowest rack with foil to catch chicken drippings .

* Preheat oven to 200ºC , upper heat only .

* Using an oven mitt , take out grill and lightly brush with oil , arrange wings on top and put back in the oven . Bake for about 35 minutes , flipping wings after 15-20 minutes of cooking , until both sides are cooked through . Cooking time depending on the oven you're using .

* When the wings are nearly done , make the peanut sauce . In a large bowl , whisk together the coconut milk , peanut butter , soy sauce , fish sauce , lime juice and the chilli sauce until smooth , adjust ingredients according to taste .

* Place wings into a bowl with the sauce and toss to coat .

* Turn heat to the highest setting , ours is 240ºC . Place back wings on the the grill and put back in the oven . Bake for about 4 minutes on each side or until wings are lightly charred .

* Serve hot . Perfect with steamed rice or noodles or with beer .
