Soury Lemon Chicken Wings

Wanted to cook some simple dish for Saturday's dinner, recipe from the book Soury Cuisine..

Soury Lemon Chicken Wings

10 chicken wing mid joint, 4 sliced lemon,
4 fresh ginger slices, 2 stalks spring onion (sectioned),
3 shallots (flatten)

½ tsp salt, ½ tsp light soy sauce,
½ tbsp chopped ginger,
½ tbsp chopped spring onion (white part only)
½ tbsp cornstarch

2 tbsp tomato sauce, 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice,
1 tsp sugar, 2 tbsp plum sauce,
300ml water


1. Rinse the chicken wings, season with marinade and marinate for 1 hour. Pan fry until aromatic and golden browned. Dish out and set aside. (Instead of deep frying the wings which is mention in the original recipe, I prefer to pan fry it)

2. Add 2 tbsp oil in the preheated wok to sauté shallots, ginger slices and sectioned spring onions till fragrant. Pour in sauce mixture and bring to boil.

3. Add in prefried chicken wings, toss well, cover and simmer over medium heat for 5 min. Lastly, add in lemon slices, stir fry briskly for a while, continue simmer with covered for further 10min until the sauce thicken. Dish up and serve hot.

--if taste is too sour can add 2 tsp of sugar while simmer the wings.
