Jalan alor chicken wings

The last time I went to Kuala Lumpur was eons ago.

I don’t think I have ever been to Jalan Alor, but when a dish is named after a place and is actually made famous, I am intrigued.

Jalan Alor Chicken Wings.

Does it not sound delicious??

It was simply something I HAD to try.

The fact that it was a chicken wing recipe made it even more alluring because we are nuts about chicken wings here and I am always on the look out for a good chicken wing recipe. So if you have such a recipe, please do share it with me! πŸ˜€

These wings were so easy to put together I was a tad worried. What if they didn’t live up to my expectations?

But to my relief, I was a worry wart for nothing because they turned out to be fabulous!!!

Man, I was going bonkers from the aroma as they were cooking in the oven.

Here are the (very few) steps on how to cook these super tasty wings.

NOTE: I used chicken drumlets because they were all I had in my fridge.

In a bowl, add the wings/ drumlets/ mid-joints/ any other chicken parts as well as the garlic, shallots and ginger.

Add the remaining seasonings – light and dark soy, sesame oil, salt, sugar and white pepper.

Stir to coat the chicken. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge to marinate for 2 hours (minimum). Give the chicken an occasional stir while marinating.

Place the chicken on the kitchen top for about 30 minutes to bring them back to room temperature before grilling.

Spray a roasting tray (or casserole dish) with cooking oil spray and arrange the chicken on the tray.

Spray with a little oil then grill the chicken at 180Β°C for 20 minutes. At the end of this time, flip them over, baste the chicken with the remaining marinade, spray with a little more oil then grill for an additional 10 minutes.

Garnish with chopped chives and chili, if desired.

Serve the chicken hot, or cold, with rice or as a snack.

These drumlets are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY good!
