Malaysia is all about food thus, there are even streets known as "Glutton streets". One may wonder how that came about. It's due to the food, of course! Glutton streets are filled with stalls selling myraids of food. From barbecued meat, noodles, snacks, fruits, stir fry dishes, steamboat to even the freshest seafood, almost everything could be found there. It is truly a food haven. I had made a whole video on my food expedition in one of the oldest Glutton Streets in Kuala Lumpur. In the video, Pudu Glutton Street was featured. Jalan Alor which is another Glutton Street is rather famous among tourists and the locals. Most of the time, the locals frequent Jalan Alor for one dish and that is the Barbecued Chicken Wings or widely known as 'Siu Gai Yik' in Cantonese. It is the sweet savoury taste and the smoked flavour of the chicken wings that attract the locals to patronize the stall over the years. If you had been there before, you would had noticed a huge grill displaying the mouth watering chicken wings. For your information, my love for these chicken wings is just as huge! I had been trying to recreate the recipe but it had not been easy. I honestly think that the huge grill somehow contributes to its distinctive flavours for which they are known for.
Here in Germany, I had tried making these Honey Soy Sauce Chicken Wings using the oven and also over the grill. The latter gave a more distinct flavour. However, it is the sweet savoury taste which I love most. Usually, I would marinate the chicken wings overnight or just before leaving for work. When I reached home after work, the chicken wings would then be placed into the oven (preheated at 200 degrees Celcius) for 40 minutes. I would glazed the chicken with the marinade twice during the grilling process.
In this video, the chicken wings were first grilled in the oven which was preheated at 100 degrees Celcius and later at 200 degrees Celcius. This step of "slow cooking" helps to produce juicy chicken wings. Either way, you will be assured of delicious Soy Sauce Chicken Wings. The end result should be the sweet stickiness for which it is known for. Enjoy these chicken wings with some Homemade Thai Chili Sauce on a sunny day with a glass of iced cold Sparkled Lychee drink That would be the perfect combination!
