We loved the baked honey chicken wings…

here but eventually, the chef left and opened his own place here and of course, we were delighted when he started serving them…

…at his current location and needless to say, we ordered those to enjoy time and time again.

Of course, we have not been there for a while now and chances of our doing so are even less at this point in time as dining in is not allowed. So far, I have not dropped by to buy and take home to eat for two reasons mainly – one, I hardly ever go out and two, my missus can cook some very nice chicken wings…

…her own way.

I do not know what sauces she uses to marinate those wings but they really taste great – maybe she coats them with a bit of honey too sometimes but not so much as hers are usually not so sticky…

Actually, she has other recipes for chicken wings. A long time ago, she used to coat them with a lot of melted cheese and cereal (Nestum or bread crumbs) and put them in the oven to bake and yes, those were mighty popular when we served them at our home dinners.

I did mention in my blogpost not too long ago that these days, with a lot of time on her hands, she may want to try out some new recipes. and the other day, she baked these…

– chicken wings marinated in teriyaki sauce, coated with sesame seeds and yes, they were very nice but I did feel that the yangneyom chicken (양념치킨) or Korean fried chicken

…wings that she cooked the other day were nicer but those were deep fried and these were baked.

Talking about chicken wings, do you have a preference for any particular part? I, for one, will always eat the drumette which actually has a lot more meat but it is more like chicken breast. We usually reserve the flat or wingette, the middle part, that is…

…for my girl to enjoy because of the nicer texture of the meat and we do not bother to eat the tip as there isn’t much meat there, just skin.

That day, when my missus cooked these chicken wings for our meals, she also cooked some chicken rice…

…to go with them. We enjoyed it and that sure saved us the trouble of having to go out and buy some home to eat. With the pandemic dragging on and on, it’s best to just #staysafe #staywell #stayhome.

  1. Of all parts of the chicken, I like the wings most, be it deep fried, baked or cooked. Like Melissa, I like the middle part of the wings. All the wings in the pix above looks so good.

    1. My girl loves the wings the most too – I love the drumsticks but if I am not wrong, there are some parts, the tendon perhaps, in the drumsticks that puts her off. She would rather go for the thigh…but no, no breast for her!

  2. I like chicken wings too, either fried or baked, I am good! I normally cut off the tip of the wing and boil it for my furry member… One day I must try your wife’s recipe… put in lots of sesame seeds with teriyaki sauce!

    1. You have the red tub, you said – the fermented Korean chili sauce. You can try that – I think it is nicer. Google for the recipe.

      We boil the tips for the stock and then throw them away – no pets to feed.

  3. I used to use honey to marinate chicken wings too but my wild honey has finished so I usually just marinate with light soy sauce, oyster sauce, Chinese wine, salt and pepper. Now I got 2 bottles of wild honey, I will marinate my wings with it.

    Love your missus’ chicken wings. The sesame seeds make it extra yummy as well.

    1. We don’t have any honey in the house – maybe that is why my missus has not used it in her cooking for a while now.

      Yes, she likes to use sesame seeds, typically Korean. She does not use sesame oil so much as I am not fond of it.

    1. Same as my girl. I prefer that part too but since my girl loves it, I would leave it all to her and just eat the drumette. Papa sayang bah! LOL!!!

    1. You drink? I used to…like a fish till I started getting gout attacks even after just a mug of beer, Tiger. I stopped…and have not touched a drop since, all alcoholic drinks.
