Nutty Drunken Chicken Wings

Ingredients:

  • 250 gms Chicken wings
  • 1 Green bell pepper
  • 1 Inch Ginger julienned or coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic paste
  • 1 Tbs Oyster sauce
  • 1 Tbs Toasted peanuts
  • 1 Tbs Spring onions, Chopped
  • Toasted sesame oil
Marinade:
  • 2 tbsp Dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine
  • 2 Green chilies, slit lengthwise

Method:

Ideally drunken chicken is first cooked and then seeped into the wine overnight. Since I did not have that time, I chose to just marinate for as long as possible.

  1. Marinate the wings in marinade ingredients for at least half an hour.
  2. Heat oil in a wok.
  3. Lightly fry the capsicum juliennes with some garlic paste.
  4. Add the wings, lightly brown on both sides.
  5. Add the marinating liquid
  6. Cover and simmer till wings are cooked and tender.
  7. Towards the end, add a tsp of oyster sauce.
  8. Stir in the toasted peanuts and spring onions just before serving

Note: Add some cornflour+water towards the end if needed to thicken the sauce and make it stick to the wings.
