Blackened Thai chicken wings

We had a mad craving for some good wings so we made some!  

Blackened Thai chicken wings

  • Three pounds of chicken wings, we like free range
  • 1/2-cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of chili oil
  • 3 tablespoon of sambal garlic chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chopped ginger
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 small dried Thai chili
  • 1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
  • 3 thinly sliced scallions

The night before you fire up the grill- Add ginger, garlic, chill and chili oil to a non- stick pan. Cook over medium heat for 1 min. then add all the rest of the ingredients except the sesame seeds and scallions. Bring up to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Then cover and let cook for around 20 min.  Uncover and let cook at medium high heat for another 10 min until wings are cooked and sauce is reduced and thick. Cool and refrigerate.


Get the grill nice and hot. Just before you drop the wings, use a damp cloth dipped in olive oil to give the grill a quick wipe. Place the wings on the grill for 2 min on each side or until desired char is achieved. Toss in a bowl with a little extra sauce and sesame seeds. Plate in a pile and top with scallions. Enjoy!
