BBQ wings Instant Pot dinner tonight

Chicken wings, drumettes and drumsticks are very popular poultry cuts in every world cuisine. What’s not to love with so many spice blends and marinade mix to choose. Quick and easy as snacks, party food, appetiser, side dish or as a main.

You never get bored with the endless ways of preparation, there are so many cooking tools and methods. We are warming up to ignite a fire.  Here’s a stovetop recipe for Chicken wings in a soy-chilli marinade.

This version recipe is prepared in the Instant Pot Duo using the high-pressure function first. When done grilled on the barbeque or in the oven for a brown crunch. Have the wings crispy and a little bit charred not blackened unless we would aim for Cajun style.

We’ll get to the “holy trinity” when I share my favourite jambalaya and gumbo, here’s a Black bean recipe. OK, back to the wings.

Sticky BBQ wings

Apart from the juicy BBQ wings and tender chicken legs, the best sticky sauce is made by using the cooking stock which has turned flavour rich now. After removing the wings, use the Instant Pot DUO saute mode to boil the stock reducing it by almost two-thirds or desired sauce thickness. Taste and add seasoning if needed.

The wings and chopped Chicken legs are well seasoned together with homemade BBQ sauce it guarantees sticky fingers and smacking lips. Serve sauce thin or thick as a dipping sauce on the side or drizzle on top of “sticky BBQ sauce chicken wings“.

#2 Smoking meat is an understatement in the States and now it’s trending and getting hotter here in The Netherlands too. Wild game is very lean meat and excellent on my Keto diet menu. Last weekend I prepared a venison hind leg, the key to smoking is going low and slow.

Family favourite Thai fusion Spaghetti

Whats-for-dinner! The standard phrase coming home with the school bus in Taipei, our kids during their childhood years (14-12-8 and 6 yrs old). In random order but always the greeting came before they entered through the door, whether it was from school, sports or even now grown up and arriving from workplace or study.

Pack of hungry wolves if they brought friends along to play or finish homework, most of the time I had (healthy) snacks at hand but if I was late or not yet home they ransacked the fridge. During our years living in Taipei, I prepared this fusion dish with what I had on hand in the fridge and cupboard for a quick meal.

Which were chillies, cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, black olives, spring onion, coriander, lemon grass, galangal, lemon juice and chicken thighs (for e.g. try Chinese Chicken Wings in a soy-chili marinade). Noodles and Pasta, onion, garlic, staple items with various Asian seasoning’s which included fish sauce among many other flavourings. I just started whipping up this dish, it became an instant hit becoming a regular summer or barbeque meal side dish over the years.

After our kids moved out for studies/work they called home for recipes; advice how-to instructions to prepare comfort food in their kitchens. Our kid’s cravings and questions are what initiated to write down recipes to share and celebrate good food with family, friends around the table. Writing down one recipe snowballed into more request even outside our inner-circle. From phone calls, e-mails, newsletters, social media came around combined with my geeky interest I landed here with a website blog, sharing my in- and outside kitchen adventures.

This is one of our family favourite Thai Fusion Spaghetti, a Ching recipe fusing our European background with Asian flavours. These home-cooked dishes have a blend of ordinary and exotic ingredients, colourful with a mix of spices, fresh herbs prepared and enjoyed together.
