Day 35 - Honey soy chicken wings

Take about 8 wings.

If you've got a good Chinese mallet knife (you know, the one with the super wide blade and the whole thing is made from one piece of metal) chop them up into bits along the joints.
(I like cooking the little pointy ends as well because they go nice and crisy and blackened. I also just love chewing on chicken bones, crushing them up in my mouth and sucking the marrowy goodness from their tiny little wings. Sorry...where was I?)
If you don't, cook the wings whole and then, when cooked, use kitchen shears to cut up - they're much easier to cut up once cooked.

In a bowl combine:
a good few glugs of soy sauce
a few tablespoons honey
1-2 smooshed cloves garlic
1 tsp or so of crushed ginger, or powdered ginger
1 good sprinkle of Chinese five spice powder

Add the wings and marinate for as long as you have.

Preheat oven to 220C
Tip everything into a baking dish and bake until chicken is browned and cooked through.
Make up a runny cornflour paste - 1tblsp or so with some water.
Pour into tray and cook for a few more minutes until the sauce thickens and goes glossy.

Cook rice, steam broccoli.
Serve the wings.
