Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemongrass
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon thinly sliced red bird red bird's-eye chili (optional)

Method

If desired, straighten each chicken wing by pushing wooden or metal skewer through length from base to tip of wing.

In small saucepan, whisk together coconut milk, curry paste and sugar; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced to 1 cup (250 mL), about 20 minutes. Let cool slightly.

In large glass baking dish, whisk together coconut milk mixture, 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the coriander, garlic, lime rind and juice, oil, fish sauce, lemongrass, ginger and salt. Add wings, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Reserving marinade, place wings on greased grill or on grill rack over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally and brushing with reserved marinade halfway through, until crisp and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with chilies (if using) and remaining coriander.
