Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Wings


I woke up this morning and had this sudden urge to try cooking Salted Egg Yolk Chicken for my family since it is my off day today. Therefore, I googled and tried to find a simple recipe for it. However, Google seems to know that I do not know which parts of chicken to buy and hence, it suggested chicken wings to me as I was keying in the search terms. Haha.

For the oven-baked chicken wings

  • 300g of chicken wings (or about 9 pieces)
  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 egg (my own addition)

For the salted egg yolk sauce:

My Oven Settings:

220°C; top and bottom heat; about 12 minutes then flip the chicken wings and bake for another 8 minutes
(Settings would differ from oven to oven. Please experiment with yours!)

Steps:

1. Wash and marinate chicken wings with some salt and pepper and light soy sauce. Keep refrigerated for at least 2-3 hours. (I marinated them early in the afternoon.)

5. Set aside and prepare the sauce.

6. Wash curry leaves. (This step is to remind me that I can wash the leaves without worrying that its smell would be washed away, something which I was initially worried about).

7. In a frying pan, stir-fry garlic, chili and curry leaves till the garlic turns golden brown.

Comments:

I think a good salted egg yolk dish should have the heavenly smell and taste of salted egg yolk, without the whole dish being too salty or overwhelming (or jelat) that one can only eat a little bit of it before being sick of the taste. This recipe brings out the taste just right and this why I love it. Another plus point would be that the chicken wings are baked!, not deep-fried! Yet, the wings are still crispy (not as crispy as deep fried ones obviously) and smell damn good even while baking in the oven! Even my brother who wanted to eat healthily commented that they smelt great and ate a piece immediately once they are ready. Haha. *thumbs up!*
