One God

These wings which I am cooking for the first time is a Vietnamese influenced recipe by Gordon Ramsay. When cooked, the wings are sticky sweet and tangy on the skins which are delicious. It is nice to eat it together with the caramelised ginger too..
The wings are not seasoned before cooking, and I find it lacks some flavour on the inside. So, if you're planning to makes this, you may want to increase the sauce and save some as dipping sauce.

These wings can be served as snack or as a dish with rice.

Orange and Ginger Caramelized Chicken Wings
Gordon's Great Escape Southeast Asia

Serves 4

vegetable oil, for cooking
6-8 shallots, peeled and sliced
4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
2 lemongrass stalks, trimmed and basehd
5cm knob of fresh ginger, peeled and julienned
zest and juice of 2 oranges
150g granulated sugar
160ml water
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 kg chicken wings
sea salt and crushed black pepper
Fried spring onions to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 180C. Heat the oil in a pan and add the shallots,garlic,lemongrass,ginger and orange zest and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the ingredients have softened.
  • Add the sugar,water,orange juice and allow to dissolve. Cook until the mixture has reduced and thickened. This should take 3-4 minutes and the sauce should start turning syrupy. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • To prepare the chicken place a large frying pan over a high heat and add 3-4 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Season the chicken, then, in batches, sear the pieces for 3 minutes, until browned.

  • Add the chicken wings to an ovenproof dish and pour over the caramel sauce, mixing well to coat. 
  • Cook in the oven for 40-50 minutes until golden brown and sticky. Halfway through cooking, baste the chicken wings. Remove the chicken wings from the oven, season with sea salt and crushed black pepper and serve with the sauce spoon over.

  1. Hello Lian, I love chicken wing and never thought of adding orange flavour with it. Your chicken wings look very yummy!
    Thank you for joining this month LTU.

  2. Hi Lian,
    Delicious looking chicken wings! The orange juice must have added a fragrant and delicious taste to the sauce! Yums!

    1. Hi Joyce, yes for a change from the usual soy sauce and honey.

  3. Hello Lian, I have cooked pan fried chicken wings marinated with either lemon or orange, but your recipe includes ginger and lemongrass is even more fragrant and tasty. Will definitely try this and thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi there! Thanks for your comment. Go ahead and try and see if you like the subtle difference:))
