Baked Oriental Chicken Wing

Baked oriental chicken wing.  Is there any other name I can use to call this dish?  I wasn't able to think of any.  For lack of words and I thought it was the most appropriate title I could think of at that time I was making the recipe, I am calling this dish "Baked Oriental Chicken Wing".  

As obvious as it can be, I baked the chicken and I used chicken wings for this recipe :-) Of all the parts of the chicken, I used chicken wings, it is because, first and for most, the only chicken part that my husband would not ask me to take the skin out.  Well, whenever we cook chicken, except when we roast a whole bird, my husband would require all the chicken skins to be removed, which pisses me off most of the time.  I like chicken skin as it makes a chicken more flavorful.  In his defense, he just wants us to stay healthy by eating healthy. I understand him completely but and there's always the BUT...    

My choice of cooking method is baking.  Baking is one of those things I do when I am lazy to do things like sauteing, stewing, braising, and chopping or mincing so many things. I usually find the preparation before cooking to be tedious and tiring that's why it's very convenient to stock on powdered herbs and spices.  Just throw in everything in a bowl and stir. Take out those chicken wings then pour the sauce over them.  If you are lazy to massage the meat with your hands, place them in a container with a lead so you can just shake them allowing the sauce to cover all the chicken wings. Marinate that for as long as you wish, the longer the better :-)  

When it's time to cook, just heat your oven to 200 degrees, transfer the chicken wings into a baking dish (you have to drain the sauce of course), place them in the oven, then you can go back to whatever you are doing.  Just don't forget to set the timer on to remind you that it's time to flip and remove the chicken wings from the oven.  Easy does it?

Oh, you might be wondering why I used the word "oriental" not something with the word soy in it.  Well,  it's actually about the soy sauce.  The use of soy sauce and oyster sauce is usually associated with Asian and oriental cooking and since "oriental" seems to be a more catchy word I used it instead of Asian.  Enough with my long blah, here's the recipe.

Chicken wings - 14-16 pcs
Brown Sugar - 4 tbsp
Oyster Sauce - 1/4 c
Soy Sauce - 1/4 c
water - 1/2 c
Sesame Oil - 1/2 tbsp

White Pepper Powder

Cooking Procedure:

1. Wash and pat the chicken wings dry.
2. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade. Make sure that the sugar is totally dissolved.
3. Pour the sauce on the chicken wings and marinate for at least  2 hours or overnight if you have the time
4. Drain the chicken and set the sauce aside.
5. Place the sauce in a pot and bring to a boil.  Simmer for about 10 minutes
6. Spray or brush a small amount of oil on non-stick baking pan.  Arrange the chicken on the pan and bake the chicken in a preheated oven (200 degrees Celsius) for at least 20 minutes on both sides.  Baste the chicken wings with the heated sauce every 5 minutes

There you go. Try it and enjoy
