Originally posted August 17, 2008 – I have to laugh when I read the post below, because I can pretty much remember that night. I haven’t always been confident in my cooking skills, and the post below proves that!! Well, it may have taken me almost 7 years, but I finally revisited this recipe. I did change up a few small things, and I did stick to the shorter marinating time :). I’m happy to report that yes- this recipe is a winner! I’m glad I decided to give it another try and work out the kinks!

My husband had been craving wings, and we had a bottle of sauce in the pantry. I had also been eyeing a recipe from one of my cookbooks for wings, so I thought I’d make a night of it and have wing night!

For the second wings – let’s just say I totally take the blame for completely messing these up. Instead of marinating the 1 hour that the recipe specified, I decided to marinate the wings all day long. So when I went to actually make them, the wings had already soaked up all of the marinade, so there was nothing left for the sauce. In my stupidity, I decided to make more of the marinade to turn into the sauce. Let’s just say that that much soy sauce in one recipe is not a good thing. These were pretty inedible because they were so salty. Thank goodness the first wings were good, otherwise we would have been hitting a drive through that night!!

I’m giving the recipe as written, because I still think they would be good if you didn’t mess them up like I did. But I don’t think I’ll be trying them for awhile, since I still can taste that saltiness in my mouth!**Please see note above!!**

Serve your chicken wings with an Asian twist. These Empress Chicken Wings are quickly marinated in a soy sauce and ginger marinade for a full flavored appetizer.
Serves: 4-6 appetizer servings
Ingredients
  • 1½ lbs chicken wings, disjointed, tips discarded
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ⅔ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
Instructions
  1. Combine the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon ginger and garlic in a large bowl. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. Place the cornstarch in a gallon size zip-top bag or large bowl. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and add the chicken to the cornstarch. Shake or toss to coat the chicken with the cornstarch.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken, working in batches if necessary to not crowd the pan, and brown on all sides. Remove the chicken to a plate. Drain the skillet. Place the skillet back on the burner and add the water, reserved marinade and brown sugar. Add the chicken back into the skillet and sprinkle with half of the green onions and the 1 teaspoon ginger. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender. Toss the chicken in the sauce before serving. Serve topped with the remaining green onions.

    How cool that you got a sample of that sauce! Both of those wings look amazing; too bad the one was too salty. Isn’t that a bummer when that happens? Especially after all that work. Glad you were able to eat the Country Bob’s wings, though! Man, now I want some wings!
