Tomato Garlic Chicken Wings

It has been a while since I have posted in this poor neglected blog...but I plan on being better about it....summer got in the way and then I was studying for this work thing....but thats all done now so I am back to posting...yay!

Today's post is for Tomato Garlic Chicken Wings.....random idea I had that just turned out absolutely deeeee-licious!

So....for the last 5 weeks or so, I have been eating some type of baked chicken wings for dinner every week....it started with me trying to eat some of the things in the pantry and i found a box of BBQ  Glaze Shake and Bake...I havent had Shake and Bake in lord knows how many years....so I thought what the heck....they turned out pretty good and I been experimenting with different wing flavors since.

Tonight I made Tomato Garlic Chicken Wings. They were super easy to make!! Instead of using whole wings, I used the wing sections (which is just what I had in the house).
I used this Lee Kum Kee Sauce for the marinade. Its technically a sauce for shrimp....but I saw it Sunday at the grocery store and had the brilliant idea that it would make a great sauce for wings. Most Asian Grocery stores will carry this so it should be fairly easy to find. The wings have a tangy, tomato-y garlicy flavor....Super YUM!

I had 14 wing parts and used 2 bags of this sauce (I really only need 1.5 bags...but what was I going to do with the remaining 1/2 bag??). Instructions below:

  1. Rinse wings and pat dry
  2. Sprinkle with pepper to taste (you won't need salt as the sauce is already salted, unless you have gi-ganta-normous wings!)
  3. Sprinkle with garlic powder
  4. Put the chicken in a ziploc bag (or a bowl...I like to marinade in ziploc bags so I can just throw the bag in the fridge).
  5. Add the tomato garlic sauce
  6. Add a couple of dashes of sesame oil
  7. Marinade overnight
  8. Bake in the oven at 350 (30 minutes for wing parts, 45 for large whole wings)
That's it....way easy! Stay tuned for more recipes! As always.....stay consumed!
