Thai Crying Tiger Chicken Wings

Thai Crying Tiger Chicken Wings Serving Presentation

 Let's face it, chicken wings have a bad press. And it's not altogether undeserved, often deep-fried and slathered in sauce and sometimes a blue cheese dressing, they are not diet food. Eat 12 of them prepared in such a way and you've probably surpassed your recommended daily calorie intake. Not good calories either. That said, I'm not suggesting anyone should eat 12 chicken wings at a sitting regardless of how they are prepared! Chicken wings are a favourite of mine but marinated and oven baked or grilled instead of deep-fried they are far less calorific and make a great appetiser. I like to cook mine using a Crying Tiger marinade, although this is quite a hot sauce when used as a dip it's less spicy as a marinade yet still delivers a sufficient level of heat for me. I keep thinking they would also go well with the Southern Thai paste but haven't managed to get around to doing it yet. (Update. I have and they were great but only for the real heat lovers out there! You could use the Bangkok style curry paste for a less spicy experience) Thai curry pastes make great marinades because they are oil-based so certainly shouldn't just be reserved for making curries, the only limit is your imagination!

There are definite differences not only in the way people like their wings cooked but also how they prepare them for cooking. Here I'm using double wings and cooking them whole but I know a lot of people prefer to cut the double wings in half before cooking. Depending where you buy your wings they may come with wingtips attached,most people prefer to cut these off. And if your wings didn't come with tips attached its quite probably because the wingtips are being shipped off to somewhere like Hong Kong or Vietnam where they are highly prized, along with the feet of course! The chicken industry doesn't waste much, only the cock a doodle do but no doubt they are working on that too. Incidentally, if you're in the UK and you want to make your chicken wing experience a little bit less industrialised then check out Waitrose. They sell organic chicken wings at far less of a price premium than you would pay for other parts of the bird.

Marinade the wings in the sauce and refrigerate for up to 24 hours if possible.

Marinate chicken wings
Place chicken wings on a wire rack over the grilling pan or baking tray.
Grill under a medium hot grill for at least 15 minutes turning at least once. Any remaining marinade in the bowl can be brushed over the wings a few minutes before finishing. Check to see the wings are properly cooked with no remaining pinkness before serving. They can also be held at this point and kept hot in a low oven. Alternatively they can be baked in the oven at 180C for around 45 minutes
Serve and enjoy!

Serving presentation for Thai Jungle curry
Thai Jungle Curry or Kaeng Pa

October 03, 2021

This is as fiery as it gets for a Thai curry, it is way more spicy than most people can handle. It is also one of the simplest Thai curries to prepare, Jungle curries, or more accurately, forest curries, were traditionally made with whatever was to hand so your choice of meats and vegetables comes down to whatever you wish to put in it.

Thai Duck Red Curry with Pineapple

February 10, 2020 6 Comments

(Updated). Meltingly tender duck combines wonderfully with the sharp and sweet flavours of pineapple and coconut in a Thai red curry sauce. I’m not normally a fan of pineapple in savoury dishes (put it on my pizza at your own risk!) but it really does work with this dish. I used to cook this with duck legs but so many people have told me they prefer to use duck breast so I have updated the recipe to reflect that fact. This also has the benefit of allowing the breast to be served pink with the...

Massaman Thai Curry Paste
Mona (Kensington, GB)
Tasty and authentic curry paste!

Full of flavour and complexity, this really is the most amazing Massaman curry paste! I've tried all of the My Thai curry pastes and they're all excellent but the Massaman is my favourite as it's so comforting, especially on a dark winter's night.
