These sound delicious and comes to me from a very good friend in the US, and her description of these is "They are a light cookie. Not as heavy as I expected. This is now, my favorite." I look forward to making these as well as enjoying them.

Not 'old fashioned' like regular wings, the sauce here is based on the cocktail, Old Fashioned. Sounds like a great sauce for chicken wings. Serve as an appetizer or a main dish with sides such as coleslaw and corn on the cob.

Instructions
For the Wings
  1. Preheat oven to 220 C. Prepare a parchment lined or foil lined baking tray with a baking rack on top.
  2. Use paper towels to thoroughly pat dry the chickens wings. In a bowl, mix together the baking powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken wings and fully coat with the mixture.
  3. Place wings across the baking rack, without overlapping. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, flip over the wings, and bake again for another 30 minutes, or until fully cooked and golden.
For the Sauce
  1. In a pan, combine all ingredients except orange zest. Reduce on medium heat until thickened. Toss with wings. Top with orange zest.
Recipe Notes

Wing prices can vary from 90 Baht/kilo for whole wings, 80 Baht/kilo for drumettes, and 125 Baht/kilo for middle wing sections. I like the drumettes as they have more meat on them, I will price this on 80 Baht. For 2 servings, this is about $1.17. I would assume this could be 4 servings if served with a side of slaw and some corn on the cob, for about 59 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. You will need a 9x13 baking dish, and a larger roasting pan that the baking dish will fit inside.
  2. Slice your bread to 3/4 inch thick slices. Arrange the bread in two layers in a 9 by 13 by 2-inch baking dish, cutting the bread to fit the dish. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, honey, orange zest, vanilla, and salt. Pour the mixture over the bread and press the bread down. Allow to soak for 10 minutes.
  4. Place the baking dish in a larger roasting pan and add enough hot water to the roasting pan to come an inch up the side of the baking dish. Cover the roasting pan tightly with aluminum foil, tenting it so the foil doesn't touch the pudding. Make two slashes in the foil to allow steam to escape. Bake for 45 minutes, remove the foil, and bake for another 40 to 45 minutes, until the pudding puffs up and the custard is set. Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
  5. Cut into squares and lightly dust the tops with confectioners sugar, serve with maple syrup on the side.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Get out a large baking dish or you can use a oven proof pan (think cast iron) if you wish.
  2. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Heat a splash of olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Place half of the chicken thighs in the pan and sear both sides of the chicken until lightly browned on both sides. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining thighs.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients until well combined. Pour into the same pan you cooked the chicken in and cook the sauce over medium heat until reduced by a third. Add the chicken back to the pan and and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 74 C.
  4. Remove the chicken from the fry pan and transfer to a serving platter, reserving the glaze in the pan. Place some foil over the chicken to keep warm. Cook the glaze over medium heat until the sauce is reduced by another third. Drizzle over the chicken and garnish with cilantro and sliced oranges if desired. Serve with fried rice on the side or just fresh pasta.
Recipe Notes

Chicken thighs will run about 75 Baht/kilo. How many thighs are in a kilo, I do not know until I make this, but for a more frugal option, buy 8 quarters, the thighs will be larger and use the legs for another recipe. Everything is minimal. For 4 servings (going with 8 thighs is a kilo), this is about 55 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Prices for whole wings: 91 Baht/kilo, middle sections: 126 Baht/kilo, drumettes: 70 Baht/kilo. Buy the whole wings, you get two pieces for you and a piece for dog food. There is a Tip that describes how to cut the sections apart without using a cleaver so you get no bone chips in the meat.
  2. Preheat your grill for a two zone cooking, having hot coals on one side and nothing on the other side.
  3. Mix the Wing ingredients and let marinate for 30 minutes.
  4. Place the wings on the hot grate directly over hot coals and sear for about 3 minutes per side, then move to indirect and cook for 20 to 25 minutes at a high temp, you are looking for a crispy skin and a golden brown color.
  5. In a cast iron skillet placed on the grill over direct heat, mix all of the sauce ingredients together and simmer for 10 minutes, then drop the wings inside the skillet and give a good mix to coat each one with sauce.
  6. Sear wings one last time over hot coals to caramelize the sauce, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve. Corn on the cob would make this a great meal!
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I buy the 50 wings. I will list this as fair cost for now and will revise when I make this.

Another variant to the Citrus Fillets. Very easy to make, I am looking forward to this one. Fish fillets can be any white fish, boneless and skinless, think Pangasius, Barramundi, Tilapia, or even Red Snapper.

  1. Butter slow cooker, sprinkle fish fillets with salt and pepper to your liking, place fish in slow cooker. Put onion, parsley, grated orange and lemon rind, and oil over fish. Cover and cook on Low setting for 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Serve garnished with slices of orange and lemon slices. Boiled buttered potatoes and a tomato salad on the side would work well for sides.
Recipe Notes

About 90 Baht for Pangasius fillets, everything else minimal. Cost per serving for 6 servings is about 44 cents each, excellent value, even with the sides.
