Balinese Chicken Wings

Recipe by  

"On a recent trip to Bali, my Balinese stepmother, Putu, let me help her prepare chicken - and I furiously committed her 'non-recipe' to memory to bring home. She has a big mortar and pestle for this kind of thing; I don't, so I end up using both sides of my meat mallet; you just want to get the ingredients well combined and at least somewhat reduced in mass. And since they're baked, not deep-fried, they're a (relatively) healthy pile of wings! I particularly like them with roasted sweet potatoes."

I absolutely love to try different recipes and especially ones that come from mothers. :) This recipe is to die for! I'll never make my hot wings the same! Thank you!

I think the marinade was alright. The flavor was pretty mild overall and baking them makes it seem like you are eating roasted chicken instead of fried chicken, which is how I prefer my wings. Perhaps I could have broiled them.

My family really liked this, although I had to improvise a little. I used 1tsp of ground tumeric and 1 1/2 tbs ground red pepper. I also started it on the grill, grilled it for about 20 minutes, then ran out of propane, and moved it to the oven, covered in foil at 450 for about 20 min. I also did some chicken breasts with the wings, and they were really good. I served it with a rice dish I do and a tossed green salad. I was thinking about adding some vinegar or wine to the marinade next time to add a little zing.

I modified this recipe slightly to marinade chicken thighs and it turned out wonderful. Of course, they took a bit longer to cook, but they were worth the wait. I left out the sugar because of personal tastes and replaced it with about a tablespoon of tomato juice. Also added some extra pepper. The chicken was really juicy and tender.

The flavor is a nice change from the traditional wings. I was afraid I would make the marinade too spicy and only used one red pepper (double the recipe). Not spicy at all, will use 2 peppers next time.

These were awesome. They're our new favorite chicken wing style. The baking leaves them the perfect tenderness. Everyone, even the kids, loved these!

Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe! The non-recipe thing always stops me from trying out different dishes. I used 1/2 tsp ground turmeric and 1/2 a medium onion for the shallot. Wonderful, wonderful. Thank you! UPDATED: I made it and the kids like it too! I didn't put the chili pepper so it's not spicy. This dish is full of flavor. I have to tell you that I'm Indonesian and now I know how to make this. Thanks :)
