Pan “Roasted” Chicken Wings
Welcome to my fourth attempt at producing a recipe. I again tried shooting a video, but it was especially difficult this time because hot oil was splashing while I was cooking the chicken and I was recording with one hand, and cooking on the other. So if you are going to watch the YT vid below, I apologize in advance.
It was the first time I cooked this recipe, and like my usual fashion, I just threw together whatever ingredients I had on hand. I must say that I really liked the way this dish tasted. It was not too salty, and it had a little kick from the cayenne pepper. I marinated my chicken for about 4 or 5 hours before I cooked it.
I do not have fancy tools in the kitchen so I just use whatever I have available. 🙂
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the recipe.
You Will Need:
- 1 lb. Chicken wings
- 3 tbsp. Sesame oil
- 3 tbsp. Ginger
- 3 tbsp. Garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup Pineapple juice
- 1/2 tsp. Granulated garlic
- 1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper
- 1-2 tbsp Olive oil
Let’s Get Cooking:
- Marinate the chicken in the sesame oil, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, pineapple juice, granulated garlic and cayenne pepper for at least 30 minutes.
- Pour olive oil on a hot, non-stick pan. Fry the chicken wings, making sure not to over crowd the pan.
- You are looking to brown the chicken wings. Keep an eye on them because they might burn. The natural sugar in the pineapple juice will caramelize the chicken which will give it the “roasted” appearance.
- Once the chicken wings have browned, cover the pan for 5 – 10 minutes to make sure that the meat gets cooked inside. Set aside.
- Stir fry garlic and bell peppers on the same pan, then put the chicken wings back and stir fry again.
- Serve while hot.
Watch the YT vid:
It is important that you do not over crowd the pan when you are browning meat. Browning adds flavor to the meat as long as you are careful not to burn it. Over crowding the pan will not brown the meat; it will boil it.
Remember that you control the amount of ingredients. The measurements above are just approximations as I seldom use measuring equipment (unless really needed).
