The Holiday season left us not just with different kinds of fruits but also with different meat dishes (or should I say fried chicken wings and pork?). Okay, okay, I’m guilty of preparing too much food last Media Noche that until now what we are eating are leftovers. I don’t want these foods to be forgotten at the back of the refrigerator then end up in waste bin later so I recycled them. The Lechong Kawali was recycled into Lechong Paksiw and the Fried Chicken Wings were recycled into something really special…Chicken Oriental.
1/2 kg. fried chicken wings
1/2 cup pineapple juice
3 tbsp. banana ketchup
2 tbsp. oyster sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp. sugar
dash of pepper
2 tsp. cornstarch dissolved in 3 tbsp. water
roasted sesame seeds
On a pan simmer the pineapple juice, banana ketchup, oyster sauce, water, sugar and pepper. Stir in the chicken wings and simmer until the sauce is reduced to almost half. Add the dissolved cornstarch and stir. Sprinkle roasted sesame seeds.
Voila! Chicken Oriental in flavorful sweet pineapple sauce.
