    Serves: 4 -6 hungry people
    Prep: 10 min
    Cooking Time: approx. 2 hrs 45 mins

    So I was about to stuff my face with left overs from last night's dinner when I thought ... "why not take a below average photo with lots of shadows & share it with my fellow O-cows." GENIUS!

    It's kind of the same premise as my Sticky Coca-Cola Chicken Wings recipe but even easier.
    If you can mix things in a bowl and use a knife then you are a winning candidate for making this recipe :D

    You'll have extra love for this if you:
    1) Are a tight arse with money
    2) Hate spending a long time with dinner preparation
    3) Enjoy sticky, sweet, finger lickin' noms


    • 2 kg Free range Chicken Wings
    • 2/3 cup of Kecap Manis
    • 5 cloves of fresh grated garlic
    • 4 Tablespoons of Australian Honey
    • BIG squeeze of fresh squeezed lemon juice (probably 1/4 cup - this breaks through the richness)
    • 1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
    • 2 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
    • Zest of 1 lemon finely grated
    • Some steamed veg - carrots and peas are easy, but pretty much anything goes, some broccoli or even an acidic salad would go well)
    • Plain white rice if you like


    1. In a large roasting pan place the sectioned up chicken wings (discard the tips)

    2. Whisk the all the other ingredients in a bowl (minus the veg/salad), taste for some kind of sweet sour, balance - then pour over the chicken.

    3. This next step is optional ... Cover in cling film and allow to marinade in the fridge. Overnight is preferred, 2 hours is alright, Cook immediately if you are dying of hunger - but you have been warned.

    4. Sprinkle with Sesame seeds and place into a preheated 150 deg C oven

    5. Every 45 mins or so remove and baste with the liquid

    6. When they are done simply switch the oven off and cook your rice/veg/salad. Something about warm chicken wings which is so much more appealing.

    7. Sprinkle over some more Sesame seeds. Place some of the marinade in a dipping bowl. Smother that stuff all over :D

    You'll probably need a damp paper towel to combat the wads of awesome chicken sticky stuff all over your face and hands.
    Any left over you can keep in the fridge for a week or just freeze in ice cubes. Add it to the next meal / stir fry.
    Any left over chicken = free meal the next day :leet:

    Thanks for this fantastic recipe RETARD! Made it for the family last night.
    My local halal butcher had chicken wings for $1.99/kg and I keep all the other ingredients in stock so it was the cheapest dinner ever.

    Family loved it, they rated it above my own fried chicken and your coca-cola chicken.

    Came out very sticky and heaps of maillard. Extra sauce went great on the rice too.

    For entrée I made some simple deep fried won-tons using won-ton sheets from the Asian grocer and diced left over ham. Kids dunked them in the sauce.

    So I made this for the family again last night. I have made it several times and you really cant get it wrong.

    Absolutely demolished 2kg with my family of 8. They were disappointed I didn't make more.

    The extra sauce goes good over steamed veges and rice.
