Braised Chicken Wings

Super fast and quick dish. Mom used to say no reason not to cook when it is this easy. She taught me this when my kids were younger. This has been one of our lazy day dish ever since.

All you need is :

2 packets of mid joint wings ( from NTUC)
Thumb size ginger - cut into slices
1 clove of garlic - smashed with the back of the knife
Soya sauce, dark soya sauce,oyster sauce and sesame oil ( about 2 or 3tbsp each ,according to your taste. I don't really measure.)
some pepper

Basically, throw everything in a pot to marinate.Let it stand for about 5mins or so. Then, fill up with water till all wings are covered. Bring to boil under high heat. Once it starts to boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 20 or 25mins till soften. Mix in some corn starch solution to thicken the sauce.

This is how it looks like when marinating.

Ready to serve. It goes well with rice or porridge.

Just get it from the poultry section. I think a packet = 8 wings or so/cost abt $2.50 p/pkt.
