Grilled Ginger Chicken Wings

"I "bribed" one of my students to watch his Cambodian grandma make these and write everything down. These are just like what she made! If you don't like ginger, don't make these. Prep time doesn't include marinating."

  1. We love this--the balance of flavors is great! Even the boys ate it up! (I don't know why you'd make it if you don't like ginger...kinda weird...) I used it on chicken breast pieces too and that was good! I boiled the marinade down and used that for a dipping sauce. YUMMY!!! Thanks for posting it!
  2. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2008 Tag. These were okay, but we didn't really enjoy them. Can't really explain what we didn't like, but it could have been the amount of gingerroot. Will try them again with less ginger.
  3. 5 stars all the way! DH and I really loved these. They have a nice ginger taste that is not over powering. Thanks for posting.
  4. Very good! I marinated these overnight and placed them on the grill. There were none left! Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
  5. these were outstanding. I cooked them on the bbq at midnight because it was to hot to do anything before then. Love love ginger.


If I weren't a teacher, I'd be a chef. I love to cook, grew up cooking, had a fireman chef for a dad, and have spent most of my free time with cookbooks, food, entertaining, classes, study, and luckily I'm in one of the best food areas in the world! But...teaching is the absolute best job in the world. Don't tell anyone, but it's more like fun and you never get bored. My pet peeve is when people spell DEFINITELY wrong. I DEFINITELY don't want to read more reviews with DEFINITELY spelled wrong. But hey, I'm an English teacher :). My other pet peeve, food-wise, is "cream of whatever" soup. I think my mom OD'd us all on it when I was growing up. My biggest challenge in cooking was trying to learn FAST food. At an "older" age, I married, had a baby and have had to learn a new way to cook! No more leisurely hours to fix dinner for friends or an hour to put something together for me....! My daughter is seven now, opinionated, and it's a real challenge. Luckily she likes almost everything. And so does my sweetie. I loved seeing her horrified face at her first abalone fresh from the ocean (my husband dives for them occasionally...oh man, nothing better...) But she ate them and then slurped down some oysters!!! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag">
