Chicken Wings and Potatoes

This is one of my favorite things to cook. Chicken wings or drumsticks are relatively easy to cook in a wok. All you have to do is shake the pan every once in a while to keep them from sticking to the bottom and make sure to turn them over so they cook on both sides.

You should be able to find oyster sauce near the soy sauce in your local grocery store. It will be black and very thick.

If you're feeling adventurous after you've cooked this dish, try eating it with chopsticks. Even after having mastered the technique of eating with chopsticks, chicken legs or wings will present a bit of a challenge. It's okay to use your hands of course but it could more fun not to.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: Serves four people

  • 1 inch ginger, skinned and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 medium potatoes, chopped
  • 4 green peppers, chopped
  • 10 dry red peppers, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup wine
  • 2 tbls soy sauce
  • 1 tbls oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp chili powder, optional

Directions

  1. Add chopped garlic and ginger to oil in a large wok.
  2. Cook just long enough to hear the garlic and ginger sizzling.
  3. Add the chicken wings to the wok. Cook two minutes, stir so that they are all turned over and cook another two minutes.
  4. Add the wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, chopped red peppers, chili powder and one cup of water. Stir everything together and let it simmer for about five minutes.
  5. Add the chopped potatoes and the other cup of water. Let cook for five minutes. Stir every couple of minutes.
  6. Add the green peppers. Continue to stir and let cook for about another five minutes. Most of the water will cook away.
  7. Serve with rice.

      Hawaiianodysseus: I'll drink to that... coffee, I mean coffee. You should definitively come to China. No matter what expectations you may have it would be an experience you likely never forget.

      Taiwan is a touchy subject here. If you ask most people here about the country of Taiwan they'll become confused. Then when they understand they'll start telling you that Taiwan is a province of China. Some will get angry.

      tjdavis; they moved it! I've had trouble finding it on some occasions too. There should be a little bar to the right side of the hub that moves with the screen as you scroll down. Some times if I switch computers it shows up on one and not the other. Another option though is that if you look at the article in your feed a share button should be the right most of three under the story. Thanks for reading.

      Hi, Wesley! I was mistaken about the location of the Starbucks coffee shop. Actually, to the best of my knowledge, the tallest building in the world that Starbucks was located in (at the time of my blog post about the Columbia Center's Starbucks shop in Seattle) was the Taipei World Financial Center, now known as Taipei 101, in Taiwan. Now that the tallest building in the world is Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the highest Starbucks in the world may have a new residence.

      Here's to having coffee with you someday in China (when my Hubpages ship rolls in). LOL!

      Angela Brummer and Victoria Lynn thank you both for your comments and votes.

      hawaiianodysseus, That is very interesting information. I do most of my writing at the local Starbucks here in zhuankou actually. They built it right after I moved to the neighborhood. I am assuming that when you say highest, you mean altitude. Do you happen to know which city and province it is located in? I instantly think of Tibet, however if it happens to be there I presently wouldn't be able to go. Some areas are a bit restricted to foreigners at the moment.

      Up, Useful, Awesome, Interesting! Very well done, Wes!

      Read one each of your hubs and blog posts and will explore more of the others as time goes by. During research for one of my own blog posts, I learned that the highest Starbucks in the world is in China. I realize it's a huge country, but have you had a chance to make it to that particular coffee shop? If so, or if you ever do in the future, I' d love to read your Hub about that wonderful experience.

      Congratulations and best wishes for continued success here on HubPages!
