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 .
