Initially I was not sure as to whether I should be sharing this Delicious Stovetop Honey Chicken Wings recipe or not. Although the recipe is delicious, but I did not put in the extra effort in photographing the pictures. It was just a matter of a few clicks of the camera while cooking as I was having some guests over. I do not know if the pictures were tantalizing enough to be shared BUT the recipe is a winner and I decided that sharing is a MUST even if the pictures are pretty mundane.
Both me and my mum enjoy chicken wings more compare to the other meaty parts of the chicken. Although we love our chicken wings fried, I do not consume them often as I do not like the idea of having deep fried food often. Sounds like a health freak aye? Well, you are looking at the same person who has no issues in having ice cream a few times in a week. I choose my battles I guess. Maybe it is also due to the mess that happens whenever you deep fry something. Oil splattering and all that grease on the stove-top. *Shudders*
Anyways, I would mostly grill the chicken wings and Tandoori wings are great! You might want to check my tandoori recipe here. I also love this Delicious Stovetop Honey Chicken Wings recipe that I would be sharing today. It is basically a Chinese-style chicken wings that are seasoned with sesame oil, soy sauce and honey and then flavored with garlic, ginger and chilli flakes. It is usually grilled but today I am going to share a stove-top version which is equally delicious, yet fuss-free . Yup, no scrubbing of baking pans here!
Although these are not grilled, they would still have a beautiful sticky glaze on the wings due to caramelization of the honey. Best of all, you can easily make a big batch of these for a party, without much of an effort. Just prepare these in advance and heat it up before serving.
For this recipe, marinating the chicken wings in advance is not required, which is good for those last minute dinners or guests coming over. Nevertheless, if you prefer to meal prep in advance and marinate the chicken wings, it works perfectly fine that way too. Just place the chicken and the sauces in a zip-lock bag and let it marinate away in the freezer till you are ready to cook it.
These Delicious Honey Chicken Wings is always a hit with my family and friends. They are delicious when eaten with rice as a side dish and these also makes the perfect dish to bring over for a pot luck. These are pretty addictive and you have been warned! Ask me to choose between caramel popcorn and these while watching reruns of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, I would go with the latter in a blink of the eye.
