Honey Wings Recipe
I personally think that chicken—with the right recipe and preparation—can be very versatile and delicious. And I feel very lucky to be a Malaysian because the Chinese, Malay, and Indians in Malaysia have many creative ways and interesting recipes when it comes to cooking chicken.
1 lb chicken wings (middle section)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
2 inches ginger (skin peeled)
Marinate the chicken wings with the ginger juice and all the seasonings above for 1-2hours. Grill or bake them in oven (at 375 degree F) for 20-25 minutes until cooked or golden brown. Serve hot.

Everybody loves chicken in Malaysia.
This past New Year’s Eve, my friend F at Salt & Turmeric prepared these turmeric and honey wings that have me craving for more since I tasted them. Coincidentally, the Asian market in my neighborhood has a special wings promotion, so I loaded them up on my shopping cart and made these honey wings myself.
