Ginger Honey Grilled Chicken Wings


How time flies.  My elder son had just passed his 20th birthday, which was on 12 Mar.  He is no longer a teenager but young adult now.   
Grilled chicken wing drumette was one of his favorite snacks when he was a little toddler.  Whenever I see him eating chicken wings, I can’t stop reminiscing how he enjoyed nibbling on it when he was a little toddler.  Back then, I didn’t know how to cook so I used to buy it from the hawker stall for him.  It was really a joy to see all his 10 little fingers were sticky with sauce and his face was smeared all over with sticky sauce, too.  :D

This is another one of the chicken wings recipe which my family likes it a lot.  It is very tasty with a slight sweetness from the honey and ginger flavor.  I like the marinades, which actually turned into a beautiful golden glaze but I tell you the chicken wings are tastier than it looks.

[I chanced upon this recipe from the internet and make a little tweak to it.]

1.2kg        chicken wing drumettes
1              green spring onion, thinly sliced diagonally
2 tbsp       white sesame seed, lightly toast it in oven

¼ cup       light soy sauce
3 tbsp       honey
1 pce        1” grated ginger
3 cloves    garlic, finely minced
1/8 tsp      sriracha hot sauce     

(1)Combine the marinade ingredients and marinade the chicken wings for at least 2 hours or overnight.

(2)Preheat the oven to 200°C and line aluminum foil before the grilling rack.  This is for easy washing after grilling.

(3)Arrange the chicken wings drumettes on the grilling rack.
Brush the remaining sauce on the chicken wings drumettes before putting it into the oven to grill.

(4)Grill for 15 mins.  Remove from oven and use tongs to turn the wings over.  Brush the chicken wings drumettes again with the remaining marinades and grill for another 10-15 mins or until they are nicely browned.

(5)Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and thinly sliced spring onion over the chicken wings drumettes, and serve.
