Yay! Last night around 11pm my cooking mood came back and I researched and got inspired from different new recipes. I have a list of seven other things to do in the upcoming weeks. I wanted something simple and delicious for lunch today (and when I take pictures during the day with my crappy camera, it turns out better than if I take it at night).
- 1½ lbs chicken wings
- Salt and black pepper
- 4 TBS olive oil
- 1 head garlic, minced
- 2-3 thyme sprigs
- Splash of red wine vinegar
- ¼ cup dark soy sauce
- 4 TBS honey
- 1 large lemon, finely sliced, save a few slices for garnishing
- Bunch of flat leaf parsley, chopped, and save for garnishing later
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and heat the olive oil in a large pan. Brown the chicken pieces (in batches if necessary) over a high heat with the garlic and thyme for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Return all the chicken to the pan, add the vinegar and bubble until reduced by half. Drizzle over the soy sauce and honey and shake the pan to mix. Pour in ½ cup of water and add the lemon slices and chopped parsley.
Let the liquid bubble and reduce down until syrupy, which will take about 10 minutes or so. By now the chicken should be cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a platter and sprinkle leftover parsley and lemon slices for garnishing.
