Grilled Chicken Wings (Thai)

19 Jul

I love oriental style grilled chicken particularly the wings when grilled over coals and cooked until crisp. These ones are marinated in lime, chilli and Thai basil. Thai basil has a deep peppery aniseed flavour it is delicious and really worth growing.  Serve as a main dish with rice or salad or one or two pieces as a starter.

Marinade for about 600g of chicken.
  • Handful of Thai basil shredded
  • rind and juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
Preparation
Prick the chicken pieces with a knife or sharp fork and lay in a dish. Pour the marinade over and rub into each piece. Leave in a cool place to marinate over night or for at least 4 hours.
Cooking
  1. Barbecue When the barbecue is good and hot, put the pieces over the hot coals and brush with the marinade as they are turned until the chicken is cooked 15-20 mins depending on the size of the chicken pieces and heat of the coals.
  2. Grill  Cook under a hot grill for 15-30mins, checking constantly and turning so as not to burn them, until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is golden brown.
  3. Oven Roast Put pieces on a rack over a baking tray and brush with marinade. Bake in a preheated oven 220c/Gas 6 for 20-30mins until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown.
