How to make Soya Sauce Chicken Wings

My parents have been lamenting that I seemed to cook primarily Japanese dishes, though they prefer Chinese cuisine. So, I heed their advice and decided to check out the recipe collection at the National Library. And I got my hands on this book 《懒人最爱:电饭煲美食》. This title really speaks to me as I really like fuss-free, simple recipes. Rice cooker dishes are great, as we normally just have to prepare the marination or the sauce mixture, and then we just need to dump all our ingredients in the rice cooker, and viola~ the dish is done. And of course, without compromising on the taste too.

The recipe I picked from the book is 香菇焖鸡翅 Soya Sauce Chicken. I varied the recipe to achieve the taste that the family likes: Juicy, savory, but not too salty.

And here's the eventual product:



And how I achieve it:

Ingredients needed

  • 10 Chicken Mid Joint Wings
  • Onion slices
  • Ginger Slices
  • Mushroom Slices
  • 45ml of Chinese Rice Wine
  • 30ml of Dark Soya Sauce
  • 15ml of Light Soya Sauce
  • 50ml of Water (for soaking)
  • 50ml of Water (for cooking)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • Sugar (to taste)
  • Sesame Oil
  • Cooking oil

TIP
If you can replace the chicken mid joint wings with winglets, that will be perfect. But of course, you will need to adjust the quantity of the wings to match the sauce mixture. Try not to use drumsticks/ drumlets though. They don't taste as good. And that's speaking from experience.

Method

1. Mix chinese rice wine, dark soya sauce, light soya sauce, 50ml of water, sesame oil, sugar and pepper together.

2. Soak the chicken mid joint wings in the mixture. Leave it in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

3. Add cooking oil and sesame oil to the rice cooker.

4. Add the ginger slices, onion slices and mushroom slices into the rice cooker.

5. Add the marinated chicken mid joint wings into the rice cooker.

6. Add the marination mixture into the rice cooker.

7. Add 50ml of water into the rice cooker.

8. Cook for about 30 minutes.

9. Serve~

There you go... Isn't it very simple and easy~
