Weekend is knocking at our door and I have a great recipe for your Sunday lunch. I have this recipe for a several years now. There was a period when we ate it at least once per week and then we just stopped eating it. Then we remembered it again and we were addicts. We forgot about it and now they are back on the menu. Therefore, when you try it, you will eat all of it and anxiously wait to make it again. And this recipe will become your family heritage.
The recipe is actually very simple and the secret is in the marinade. If you put the wings in the marinade on a Saturday evening for Sunday lunch, be careful not to bite off your fingers when eating the wings.
Preparation time: 75 minutes + time for marinating
Ingredients (for 4 persons):
2 kg chicken wings
200 ml soy sauce
juice of 4 oranges
2 Tbs of honey
100 ml oil
1 tea spoon of chili powder
1 tea spoon of ginger
1 tea spoon of garlic
1/2 tea spoon of turmeric
Ideally prepare the marinate one day ahead (or several hours before baking). Squeeze the fresh orange juice, add soy sauce, oil, honey, spice and combine it all well. Wash the chicken wings, put it in bowl and cover with the marinade. Cover the bowl with aluminum foil and leave to set in the fridge.
Heat the oven to 180°C. Put the chicken wings in a baking tray (feel free to take a bigger one because you will need space to turn over the wings). Cover the baking tray with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. In the meantime, heat the remains of the marinade until you get a thicker mass. After 30 minutes remove the foil and bake the wings for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes, turn each chicken wing on the other side and coat with the marinade. Bake for another 15 minutes. Turn the chicken wings to the original side and coat with the marinade. Bake for the last 15 minutes.
Serve with potato wedges or any other side dish.
I wish you a nice and tasty weekend.
