These wings have an Asian twist to them with a kick from ginger, chili, and lemongrass.

1 tablespoon ginger
4 garlic cloves
large pinch of chili flakes
1/2 can coconut milk

  1. Place lemongrass, ginger, garlic and chili in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add the coconut milk and fish sauce and mix it well.
  3. Place the wings in a large bowl and add the marinade. Let them marinade for 1 hour.

  6. Take them out, turn them over and baste them with more marinade and bake further until golden and done, about 5-6 minutes.(all depends on how big your wings are)
