Garlic Honey Chicken Wings

My family loves chicken wings but I read somewhere that it is not good for health as this is the area that has high concentration of steroids to enhance the chicken's growth spurt.

Since then, to the dismay of my kids, I have cooked lesser chicken wings then before.

Having said that, life is short.  I have known friends who eat really healthy food and eventually still fell ill.

Nevertheless, I think moderation is still the key word to "live life to the fullest".  

Thus for this round of chicken wings, I wanted to see whether I can yield that crispy texture using the air fryer.  Well I am happy to say that it works!

So join me on this Garlic Honey Chicken Wings!




What you need:

1kg chicken mid joints
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 bulb garlic, puree
2 tsp salt

1/4 cup plain flour
2 tsp corn flour
a dash of pepper

Sauce

2 tbsp Soya sauce
2 - 3 tbsp honey
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp vinegar

1/4 cup plain flour
2 tsp corn flour

Method:

Marinate chicken mid join with soya sauce, garlic and salt.  Chilled overnight.

Add the plain flour, corn flour and pepper in a plastic bag.  Close the bag and give it a shake to combine.

Place the chicken mid joints into the plastic bag and give it a few good shake.  Chicken by then should be thoroughly coated with flour.  DO NOT THROW away the marination.  Keep it for the sauce.

Preheat air fryer to 160 deg.  Bake for 6 min on each side.

Remove and set aside.

Using a nonstick pan, heat up the sauce.  Add in the marinating juice as well. Adjust to the ingredients to your liking.  

Once it boils, remove from heat and add in the chicken.

Stir to ensure chicken are coated with the sauce.

Serve.


Happy Weekend!
