Drunken Wings..aww this is a lovely preparation and doesn't involve much work. Ideal for a weekend eat-in . I have some chicken wings for roasting in the freezer. But after watching how easy it is to preapre this mouthwatering wine infused wings, I knew I had to make them for our dinner last Saturday :) I served them as a cold dish...it was so good that I am going to make this again. You can either serve them cold or at room temperature.
All you need is some spring onions, a few slices of ginger, chicken wings and raisin wine/ chinese rice rice ( Hsiao Shing wine ) The original recipe calls for good grade of hsiao shing wine. I replaced Hsiao shing wine with the homemade raisin wine and it was lovely :) All you have to do is boil some water ( enough to cover the amount of wings ) When the water boils add in spring onions tied into a knot and some slices of ginger.
When the water boils , add in sea salt and the wings and lower the heat to medium low and boils till the wings are cooked through. Take the wings out and put them into a bucket of icy cold water. Make sure the wings are completely submerged into the ice water. Leave them in ice water until the wings are icy cold to touch. This process helps tighten the skin and make the wings springy .
Take the chicken out and drain off excess water. Pour enough raisin/hsiao shing wine into a wide mouth glass container, making sure that the wings are totally covered with the wine. Close the lid and leave it for at least 6 hours so that the wine is infused into the wings. For me , I leave the whole container in the fridge and leave them there till it is ready for serving . Served them cold ...it was yummy !!! A simple and no frills dish which can be prepared a day before. You will have your dinner guests asking for more :)))
