Oven Baked Prawn Paste Chicken 虾酱鸡
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3
  • 8-9 pcs of chicken mid-joints/wings
  • 4 tbsp prawn paste sauce (I used Dancing Chef in packet form)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 60g self-raising flour
  • some olive oil
  1. Marinate the chicken mid-joints or wings with the prawn paste sauce and sugar and leave them to chill in the fridge overnight.
  2. Coat the chicken with the self raising flour as evenly as possible. Place them on a rack with a plate or tray beneath it to catch the excess flour and to allow the moisture to dry up by placing them back into the fridge for another 1-2 hours.
  3. Remove the chicken mid-joints/wings from the fridge and brush a layer of olive oil on one side of the chicken. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees C for 10 minute (with fan mode on).
  4. Remove the tray of chicken mind-joints/wings and turn them over the other side. Brush the other side with more olive oil and place them back into the oven to continue baking at 200 degrees C for another 15 minutes till the skin turns crispy. Remove and serve hot.
