Paper Wrap Chicken Recipe

Owner Lyñ (My Little Messy N Cheeky) SG ⌚ 5:06 AM
Since I'm not making any bentos for the girls lately, I take this chance to try out those new recipes awaiting for me!:DOne of them is this Paper Wrap Chicken that I'm going to share with you today. I got this recipe from a monthly magazine that was mailed to my helper and it has got a section whereby they'll publish 'Recipe of The Month' and I presumed these recipes are from other helpers who wanna share out. 
Before I started on the recipe, let me share with you a Lunch Punch Giveaway from Alice (Angeleyes) of Bento Fun. Rules for participating are very simple so check it out in her blog if you're interested. Who knows, you may be the lucky winner... Of course I've already submitted mine!:D
Ok, now let's get down with the recipe.
This may look burnt but it's not... The greaseproof paper prevent the chicken from being burned and makes the marinade caramelizes onto the chicken.

    Ingredients For 4-6 Pax :
  • 500g Chicken Wings (About 10)
  • 10 Pieces of Greaseproof paper (18cm x 18cm)
  • Oil For Deep Frying
    Marinade :
  • 3 Tbsps Light Soya Sauce
  • 3 Tbsps Oyster Sauce
  • 2 Tbsps Sesame Oil
  • 2 Tbsps Chinese Cooking Wine (花雕酒)
  • 1 Tbsp Cornflour
  • 3 Tsps Sugar
  • Dash of White Pepper
    How To Cook :
  1. Marinate chicken and leave in fridge for 3-4 hrs. Stir again during half the marinating time to make sure all parts are well marinated.
  2. Take a piece of greaseproof paper, place one wing in the middle. Fold paper over the wing diagonally to form a large triangle. Fold in both side corners towards the center, then fold down the top corner and tuck it in securely under the two corner folds. Make sure the packets are well sealed so that no oil will seeps in.
  3. Using medium heat, deep-fry the chicken wings about 6 at a time so as not to overcrowd the wok, stirring occasionally until packets turn golden brown.
  4. Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot with rice.
I cooked this on 14th May, Saturday. All my family members like this new recipe of the chicken wings and requested me to cook again the next day! I dare not cook too much on first try as I'm afraid that it won't turn out nice and there'll be left-overs.

I can't believe how pretty this looks coming out of the paper wrapper. It doesn't look burnt to me it looks fantastic! I am going to have to stop reading this post now, because it is making me too hungry. YUM!

Hi Lyndsey! Tks for your lovely comment! :D
On the left side of the chicken is black so it looks burnt! LOL

These chicken wings look great - I would have never thought that they would come out so nicely glazed after being cooked in paper - they get the glaze and don't dry out - what a great recipe. Thanks!

It has been years I never had paper wrapped chicken. When we were staying in Ipoh Road, there is a coffee shop that is famous for this. So now with your recipe, no need to drive all the way that end to eat it. I will make this at home now. Hope they look as good and as yours. Well done my dear!
