Chicken wings are selling at RM10.90 a kg at Jusco. They looked fresh and big , so I bought a few back and instead of deep frying them , I oven fried them instead. Not so oily and it tasted good. It uses little oil and not so messy. It is cleaner and healthier too :) but of course chicken wings are not really good for health. High in fat but I love to indulge in it once a while :p Eat everything in moderation and you will be fine :) Read on to see how it is being prepared.......
I marinated the wings with chopped onions, garlic, ginger, oyster sauce, thick soy sauce , white pepper and a tsp of sugar , wrapped them in parchment paper and oven fried them :) It tasted exactly like the dim sum delicacy " chi pau kai " mmmmm yummy good and really finger licking good :) slurp !
I marinated it for 3 hours before I wrapped them
in parchment paper.
I used bamboo skewer to seal the edges together :)
the chicken wings are ready to be oven fried
when the chicken are cooked through, take the parcels out and
place the parcels on a wire rack with a pan
underneath to collect the drippings of excess oil
cut open the parcel and serve the chicken wings
either with rice or porridge
