Due to some skin irritation, the doctor forbid me from hot sauce until the wounds near my mouth healed. But I had chicken wings in the fridge! Fresh wings! What could I do? Well, maybe I could experiment with some non-spicy flavours . . .
- soy sauce
- sirachi sauce
- Marinated wings in soya sauce overnight
- Next day, heat wok/fry pan to medium-high
- Add garlic and pepper, saute for maybe 1 minute
- Add wings & sirachi, discard leftover marinade.
- Cook until crispy - enjoy!
I felt like trying this dish after reading various Chinese inspired dishes. Above is the wings marinating in the soy sauce. And yes, they are in re-used milk bag. Excellent marinade bags.
Ooooh boy those wings hit the pan hot. The smell of the garlic, pepper and soya wings was good.
I know I know the doctor said no spicy food. But I couldn't resist!
I thought they looked good coming out. Well, they look like they are burnt, but I assure you that is the soya sauce, not black crispies.
When I bit into them, I kinda expected them to be overwhelmingly salty from all the soya sauce, but they weren't. They were an interesting change up from my usual wing routine.
What Would I Do Differently Next Time? I could have added more spices, and more heat, but over all I'm happy with what I made.
Ok the next one is kind of a cop out. This batch was made with Shake'n Bake BBQ Glazed. I felt a little shame using this for some reason.
It's pretty straight forward. Toss the wings in a little plastic bag with the seasoned mix. Place in the oven and bake and bam-o - you have tasty wings. Or chicken.
Here are the coated wings before baking.
And here is the after shot. The sauce was a sweet bbq that made for a nice glaze.
They were certainly sticky and sweet. But good.
What Would I Do Differently Next Time? I think the only way I personally would improve on this is add some cayenne pepper or chili flakes to up the heat. But this is a wing that I think just about anyone would like.
- soy sauce
- brown sugar
- PC Smokin' Stampede Beer & Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
- Marinate wings overnight with first 5 ingredients
- Next day, bake wings (discarding marinade) for approx 20 mins on high
- Remove wings from oven and add to wok already set on medium-high heat
- Stirfry wings and add BBQ sauce and sirachi until sauce is cooked in.
Post marinaded, pre-stir fried wings. Not lookin too hot in my opinion.
And they didn't taste good. The marinade didn't didn't make an impact. That's when I took the baked wings and stir fried them in bbq sauce.
Now they were goopy good.
What Would I Do Differently Next Time? The marinade was pretty much useless. The next time I would either A) slow cook them in the marinade adding coke, Worcestershire sauce and more spice which would lead to a fall off the bone wing or B) go straight for the stir fry in a bbq sauce and get to keep the wing crispiness.
Overall I was happy with my Tri-Wing tasting. Sure I snuck some spice in, but I could have gon for a lot more. But its always good to change things up once and a while.
Oh and on a side note, I'm all healed up and back to the spice! Thanks Doc.
