chinese chicken wings

category: main dish
serving: makes 2-3 servings

i got this chicken recipe in one of the foodblog that i constantly visit for some good recipes, blog chef. since i just have to prepare for three, i just adjusted the ingredients and luckily i got a thumbs up from my customers (kim & makuy ;p). this is similar to the buffalo wings in a restaurant although it's not spicy, i can still associate it with that. if you like it spicy and hot, you can always add hot sauce or chillis.

blog chef recommended to marinate the chicken wings overnight or for 24 hours for a more flavorful wings. as he said, the marinate is just as good as a dipping sauce or just simply pour over the rice just like what we did. the original recipe is here.

7 chicken wings, cut into 2
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pineapple juice
4 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ginger powder

in a large bowl combine all of the marinade ingredients. add the chicken wings, cover and refrigerate. marinate overnight (or longer).

pre-heat oven to 350º. arrange chicken wings on a foil lined baking sheet. pour marinade over wings.

bake in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until wings are fully cooked.
