Chicken Wings in Oyster Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

Recipe from "the travelin' gourmet" (I was unsure about the total cooking time or prep time because I have never made this before, so I approximated.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each wing into two pieces by separating at the joint; discard the tips.
  2. Heat the ginger slices in the oil in a wok; add a third of the wings at a time and brown.
  3. When the wings are browned, drain the oil and remove the ginger slices from the wok.
  4. Add the oyster sauce, sherry, sugar soy sauce, and water.
  5. Place the browned wings in the wok and simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Cook another 12 to 15 minutes with the lid off, basting frequently with the sauce.
  7. When the wings are tender and nicely glazed, they are ready to be eaten.

Well, since I begged for this recipe to be posted I figured I'd better get around to reviewing it! I made these last night but I didn't have the sherry so I had to omit it and I didn't add water because I baked them rather than making them on the stovetop. I also added 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp ground ginger since I had no fresh gingerroot. I baked them at 350' for 1 hour. They were so simple and really delicious! But I made a mistake and put all the sauce on them before baking them. I should have reserved some to put on them the last 15-20 minutes they were in the oven. Next time I'll know better. ;) Thank's so much for posting! It's one I will definately make again!
