Occasionally I just cannot be bothered stuffing around with big ol’ fancy recipes, I want something really tasty and bursting with flavour but I don’t want to be mucking around in the kitchen with a load of different ingredients and prep for hours.
When those days come it’s recipes like this Honey Soy Chicken Wings that are just perfect to make, did I also mention that it’s an incredibly cheap recipe to make? Right, well let’s get started with the ingredients.
- 12 chicken wings
- 1/4 cup of Soy Sauce (I prefer Light Soy, but you can use normal)
- 2 tablespoons of Hoi Sin Sauce
- 1/3 cup of Tomato Sauce
- 2–3 tablespoons of Honey (depends on how sweet you like it)
- 2–3 tablespoons of Sweet Chilli Sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon of Sesame Oil
- 3 cloves of Garlic crushed
- 1 Chicken stock Cube
Throw everything, except for the Chicken Wings, in a big mixing bowl and stir it all in till the Honey is reasonably blended with the other ingredients. Now we need to prep the Chicken Wings.
Pat the Chicken Wings dry with some paper towel, once you’ve done that fold the wing tip under the wing and tuck it up on the ‘drum stick’ side. If you hear the bone / joint crack you’ve done it right. Now you should have a ‘triangle’ looking Chicken Wing.
Throw the wings into the marinade, give it all a good stir so that the wings are all coated in the marinade, now put it in the fridge for an hour or so.
Once the hour is up put the marinaded Chicken Wings, as well as all the marinade, into a big baking dish and pop it into the oven at around 180–200 degrees Celsius for about an hour, you should check on the wings and baste them with marinade every 20–25 minutes and turn them all over with about 10 minutes to go.
When the Honey Soy Chicken Wings are done they will go this beautiful golden brown colour. Time to serve!
I normally serve the Honey Soy Chicken Wings with some rice, covered in the excess marinade, and a little bit of salad. All up I think this works out to be less than $5 a serve!
