In the spirit of the Healthy New Year Six-Week Challenge 2nd Week’s theme, “Go Ethnic!”, I made a fresh, savory asian chicken fried rice with spicy baked chicken wings.
I’ve always loved Asian flavors, you know, from take outs…but I haven’t managed to achieve that flavor myself, at least not until last week. The base of most Asian cuisines is ground ginger and garlic! It’s magical really! If you want to boost that flavor even more, just add a little honey, a little chili, a little lime and voilà, delicious Asian flavor base!
So, I wanted to try this new-found base out and what’s easier to experiment with than chicken? The chicken breast with the fried rice was the easier part of the cooking, but since I’ve never baked wings in oven, I was afraid how I’ll manage to bake it completely, but not let it dry out…well, a little water pour under the wings from time to time made the trick. So the result was an amazing smell that filled the whole house and an even more delicious dinner with perfectly baked wings and a savory chicken fried rice!
- 5 Chicken Wings
- 500 gr Chicken Breast (Skinless, boneless)

- Dice the chicken breast.
- Ground the ginger and the garlic. Mix them with the oil, salt and chili.
- Pour the half of the ginger-garlic mixture to the chicken breast, and the other half to the wings.
- Pour the soy and Worcestershire sauce on the wings.

- Use the sliced scallions for decoration and for its fresh taste.
To be fair, the Asian Chicken Fried Rice with Baked Chicken Wings wasn’t the only Ethnic food I made, I also tried out baking home-made calzone, but that’ll be another post! 😉
Well this week’s theme is “Try a New Lean Protein”! Sounds interesting, so I can’t wait to try out some new recipe! 🙂
