I love Asian street food. I also love Buffalo wings. I had some chicken wings in my fridge but I didn't have any Frank's Red Hot (hot sauce) which is what I like to make my Buffalo wings with. Instead I went the route of making an Idonesian bbq sauce with kecap manis which is Indonesian soy sauce that's sweetened with palm sugar. It's thicker and sweeter than other soy sauces and I mixed it with sambal (chili garlic paste) and ginger. This was a great summer snack especially with a few Bintang beers. You can make them as spicy as you want them, just don't burn your kitchen down because will get a little smokey if you broil them like I do.
Indonesian Chicken Wings
3 lbs chicken wings (tips removed)
1/2 c kecap manis
2 Tbsp sambal
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
Remove the tips of the chicken wings and cut them in half at the joint. Preheat broiler. Combine the soy sauce, ginger, sambal, honey and lime juice and stir until mixed well. Marinate the chicken in the bbq sauce for 30 minutes refrigerator. Place the chicken wings on a broiler pan or sheet pan in a single layer spread apart. Broil for 8-10 minutes each side until the chicken is perfectly cooked. Serve right away.
