I’m extremely happy that I came across this recipe: http://steamykitchen.com/6902-momofuku-baked-chicken-wings.html. (Momofuku is a restaurant group in New York). I’ve gotta say, the chicken wings were heavenly.
I pretty much followed the whole recipe with only the baking time being different.
The chopped ingredients for the Octo Vinaigrette (including the cilantro. and I even cut a full chili for garnish just like SteamyKitchen did. haha):
The Octo Vinaigrette mixture (I used regular soy mixed with water instead of the low sodium soy. turned out fine):
I baked it for 35-40 mins instead for extra crisp:
Mixing the awesomeness:
Even with the chicken wings being drenched in the octo vinaigrette, they still maintained a slight crisp.
*There will be some vinaigrette left over. I tried to make good use of it and poured it over baked cod and salmon. Chicken is still better, but it worked.
