Chinese Chicken Wings
- 30 wings (flappers only)
- 2 tablespoons
- 1 tablespoon finely minced ginger
- 1 tablespoon
finely minced garlic
- 1/4 cup minced green onions
- 1/8 teaspoon
red pepper flakes
- 2/3 cup rice wine
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons
* Mix this with SOY SAUCE until partially dissolved.
- Heat wok and add oil. When oil is hot, add garlic, ginger, green
onions and red pepper flakes. Fry for about 15-20 seconds, stirring
and being careful to not burn garlic.
- Next, add wings and
cook for few minutes until light brown. Also it is important during
this part of cooking cycle to make sure wings get coated with garlic,
ginger, red pepper flakes and green onion.
- Next, pour rice
wine over wings and stir them for 1-2 minutes before adding the
brown sugar/soy sauce mixture. Stir for about 1 minute to ensure
wings are evenly coated. Turn down fire a little, cover wok and
simmer wings for about 20 minutes, removing lid and stirring every
three minutes or so. It is VERY IMPORTANT to make sure that when
you stir, the wings on the bottom of the wok are stirred to the
top so that the sauce flavor will be evenly distributed.
- At the end of the 20 minute simmering cycle, remove lid from wok
and turn up heat a little bit. Stir wings every minute or so. Cook
wings until they have glazed appearance (about 5 to 10 minutes).
- Serve with white rice.
Any extra sauce leftover in
wok can be spooned over rice. You could also probably make whole
chicken wings (use about 12-13 and lengthen simmering time maybe
10-15 minutes to allow flavors to penetrate meaty part of wing).
