Mama’s Chicken Wings… Finger-lickin’ good

Hi guys… I know I’ve been totally slacking on this blog. I just gotta get back in the groove. Hoping to find some inspiration this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyhows… been in a total wings mood lately (but when am I ever not?) but having too much fried wings is bad for my throat (and waistline and my poor arteries too…). So it was a good thing when my mom made a batch of her soy sauce chicken wings last weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚


Here’s her simple recipe:

1 to 1 1/2 lbs chicken wings
3 to 4 tablespoons dark soy sauceย (we usually useย Lee Kum Keeย brand)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Sliced ginger
Chopped garlic
A cup of water

1. Wash your chicken wings and pat them dry with paper towel.
2. Make the soy sauce marinade by mixing the dark soy sauce, sesame oil, and sugar together.ย 
3. Place your wings in ziplock bags with the marinade and let it sit for about half an hour to an hour.
4. After letting the wings marinade, you can saute ginger and garlic in pan and pan fry the wings (keep the marinade for later) for about 5 minutes on both sides.
5. Then pour in the water and add in the leftover marinade. Cover the pan and let the wings simmer over low medium heat for about 20 minutes. You can give it a stir and flip the wings occasionally to make sure they are well coated on both sides.
6. Take one for a taste test and make sure it’s cooked through. Enjoy!

Don’t let the leftover soy sauce go to waste. That shit is great just spooned over a bowl of rice. Pure comfort food *sighs*

This simple recipe is great for when you’re in the mood for wings but not necessarily of the fried variety.

Til next time,
