Ingredients 6 Servings

  • 2 pounds chicken wing pieces
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon Rendang Curry, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 makrut lime leaves
  • 3 fresh Thai bird’s eye chilies, thinly sliced, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sliced fresh lemongrass, (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 cucumber, cut into spears

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat wings with 1/2 cup of the Rendang Curry in large bowl. Cover. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight for extra flavor.
  • 2 Arrange chicken wings in single layer on foil-lined large shallow baking pan sprayed with no stick cooking spray. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through, turning halfway through cooking.
  • 3 Meanwhile, bring water, sugar, lime leaves, 2 of the thinly sliced chilies, lemongrass and remaining 1 tablespoon Rendang Curry to boil in small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Remove lime leaves and lemongrass. Stir in lime juice.
  • 4 Place wings in large bowl with the lemongrass lime syrup; toss to coat well. Sprinkle with remaining 1 thinly sliced chile and peanuts. Serve immediately with cucumber spears.
  • 5 Test Kitchen Tip: Makrut lime leaves are shiny, thick, dark green leaves that grow in doubles—as two connected leaflets. The leaves provide a refreshing lemon-lime aroma and flavor typical of Thai cuisine. To get the maximum amount of flavor when using whole fresh leaves, remove the center stem/vein and discard. Dried leaves can be used whole. Makrut lime leaves are available fresh, frozen or dried in Asian markets and online retailers.
