Grilled Bovril chicken wings

I don't have an electric oven, but I have a halogen oven sitting in my kitchen cabinet for a very long time. When I married my husband, this halogen oven already there. My husband won it from his company dinner lucky draw contest. Since I have made cooking my new resolution, I dug out some old but never-use-before cooking appliances.

Last Sunday was my first time grilled chicken wings with halogen oven for my family as dinner. It was actually Yvonne who shared with me  the recipe of Wokking Mum.
Ingredients:
  • I used 10 Chicken Winglets
Marinade:
  • I used 1 tablespoon Borvil
  • I used 1 teaspoon Honey
  • I used 1/2 teaspoon Sugar

Halogen Oven
How to do it:
  1. Mix marinade together well.
  2. Add winglets to the marinade and marinate for 2 hours.
  3. Drain winglets from marinate and place on a baking tray. Retain marinade.
  4. Bring reserved marinade to a boil and set aside to use for basting. Add a bit more sugar if you want the sauce sweeter. ( I skip this step)
  5. Grill in preheated oven at 220C for 25 mins, basting it with Bovril and honey in-between.
  6. Remove when done and serve.
               

Grilled chicken wings are my husband's favourite, so he helped me with the basting.

2 adults and 2 children polished off the 10 yummy Bovril chicken wings. I will definitely cook this dish more often in future.

Folks, do you have a halogen oven at home too? what other things that I can cook with it?

  1. Yan, your grilled chicken wings are so tempting :D

    Everyone in my family loves this dish and usually I don't get it from hawker stall nearby my house because it is expensive.

    Now I can make it on my own, at a cheaper price!

  21. Yes, my mom and my sister also owned the halogen oven. My mom used it to bake cakes, while my sister used it to bake hot dogs, peanuts , shredded coconut and etc... In fact, I think the halogen oven works the same as oven.

  25. yan,
    my chicken's meat is tender and just right.i use half of the chicken bake at 180c for 25 mins.but the taste is bitter and not sweet enough even i added 3 tsp of sugar. compare to the chicken adobo by sonia from nasi lemak lover. the later is delicious but you have to add some sugar up to your taste.. may be bovril will taste even better la. although the taste is not good but is still finish up by hubby..
