Now that it’s finally getting warmer here in the Northeast, it’s been virtually impossible to not fire up the grill for at least one meal a day. We absolutely love the smoky smell and delicious char that can really only be achieved from the grill. Needless to say, it’s become the cornerstone of our cooking life. A couple days ago Liz mentioned she was craving something Asian inspired. I recalled a delicious grilled Chinese chicken wing recipe that my family used back when I was a kid. It was a bit citrusy, tangy and sweet. Finger lickin' good!
Not having the actual recipe in my possession, I was forced to recreate it from memory (some 20-something years ago!) I wanted to stay as try to the recipe as I could recall but also knew that changes I made to it would make it my own. Quite liberating if you ask me! Naturally I incorporated our Chinese Takeout Spice Blend just because we love it!
I would suggest trying this on your own. It can be a bit daunting changing a recipe due to fear of completely messing up the dish. Been there, done that. Don’t be afraid! Take it from me, when cooking, unless you dramatically increase an ingredient like salt or hot peppers, you’ll find that small changes in measurements or ingredient substitutions will make a recipe your own and embolden you to go on more cooking adventures!
So here it is, in all its glory, my family’s ancient Chinese secret...er...my newfangled recipe for Grilled Asian Chicken Wings.
