Grilled Sambal Winglets

Chicken wings or winglets are the family's all time favourite. You can do it in all sort of ways. One of my favourite is in sambal chilli.

I can't take spicy food (although I love it) so it's always good to be able to make it on my own so I can adjust how hot I want the sambal to be. Add dried chilli and more chilli padi if you want it more spicy. I can't do that cos if I do, I'll be full drinking water. :P

  • 8 Chicken Mid-joint
  • Additional 1 Calamansi to be squeezed over grilled winglets (optional)

  • 10 Fresh Red Chilli, de-seed
  • 3 Chilli Padi, more if you like it spicy, de-deed
  • 3 Shallot
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • Juice of 1 Calamansi
  • Salt to taste

    How to do it:
    1. Blend, all ingredients for sambal into paste and set aside.
    2. Pat dry winglet and marinate with half the sambal for at least an hour.
    3. Lay winglets on oiled rack for grilling.
    4. Spread half of the remaining sambal on the winglets.
    5. Spray on a bit of cooking oil if possible.
    6. Grill in preheated oven at 200C for 30mins, turning the winglets mid way.
    7. Spread the remaining sambal on the winglet when you turn the winglets for further grilling.
    8. Serve with a additional squeeze of calamansi if you like.
