Tips for the best flavours
Here in Germany, I had tried making these honey soy sauce chicken wings, grilling them in the oven and also over the charcoal fire. 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.
Substitute honey with maltose
Instead of using the pestle and mortar, feel free to use the blender and also substitute maltose with honey or any type of sugar. The end result should be the sweet stickiness for which it is known for.
