  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken wings


  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced lemon grass
  • 10 to 15 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red birdseye chiles (prik ki nu)
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander/cilantro (including roots if possible)
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/4 cup whiskey (preferably bourbon or rice whiskey


  1. Mix the marinade, stir the wings until thoroughly coated and leave to marinade for 12-24 hours in the fridge.
  2. They should then be barbecued or grilled over fairly high heat until cooked through.
  3. This is then served with a dipping sauce that consists of 4 parts mayonnaise, 4 parts tomato ketchup to one part hot chili sauce (Tabasco is suitable, or anything hotter than that).


This is a useful recipe for something to do with chicken wings. My wife cuts the wings off all the chickens she uses and keeps them in a large bowl in the freezer, when the bowl is full we make this up, and serve it as 'tapas' in the restaurant in the evenings. It is good finger food, but perhaps only for adults.

As for the leading question, most if not all the alcohol is burned off in the barbecuing process, so it is quite safe for children, but if you are making it for the kiddies, you might want to reduce or leave out the chiles!
