Devilled Chicken Wings

I always love chicken wings, but not for EG. So, since I'm only cooking for myself tonight, I decided to try out the devilled chicken wing that I copied from a recipe book when I attended CG @ a friend's place. I bought my chicken wings from Tesco Extra after church today.

The recipe is rather simple. My first attempt was good and I felt so good that I can't don't write it in my blog to remember this. :D

Ingredients (my version - for 1 person)
2 chicken wings
Corn Flour (Original recipe is normal flour)
Chopped garlic
1 stalk of celery - cut into slices
1 tbsp of dark soy sauce
1 tbsp of black vinegar
1/2 tbsp of brown sugar

Few slices of gingers - you can cut them into small pieces
Salt to taste
Pepper (I used black pepper from Sarawak baru best.. :P)

First, marinade the chicken wing. I coated them with corn flour (i don't have normal flour :P). Heat oil in the pan and saute the chicken wings in low heat. Note that it's not deep fried chicken wings so I don't use A LOT OF oil, but just enough to saute them until they turned brown & cooked - checked by using a fork to poke parts of the chicken wings and make sure it can go through. Take out & leave the chicken wing aside.

With little oil, fry the garlic till goden. Add in celery and stir fry for a while. Add in combination of soy sauce + vinegar + brown sugar + water. Stir over gentle heat until sugar dissolve. Add in corn flour to thicken the sauce. Leave it simmer under low heat for 1 minute.

Lastly, add in the chicken wing, coat them evenly with the sauce and heat through before served.

It's quite messy to fry the chicken wings due to the shape since i didn't put a lot of oil. But I'm very surprised that the result turned out really good. Oh, i love the sweet + soury taste of the vinegar + sugar. Next round, I'll try with drumsticks only since it's easier to fry that than the whole chicken wing. =)

PS: Sorry, there's no picture as EG is having the camera. I used my phone camera but it turned out real bad.... So till i cook it again, i'll take some better pics to update this post.
