Yuzu Marmalade/Korean Citron Tea Chicken Wings

Ever since I made my Yuzu Marmalade, I've been eating it sparingly, enjoying it with toast most of the time. Then yesterday I was going to cook chicken wings for dinner and deciding over the method and a thought came to my mind about using yuzu marmalade. Lemon or orange chicken is a popular Cze Char dish so most probably yuzu chicken could work as well.

It's actually very simple, I marinated the wings with yuzu marmalade or Korean Citron Tea, soy sauce, salt, cooking wine and pepper for at least an hour. Then I air-fried the wings for about 9-10 mins, turning over 2-3 times and glazing with more yuzu marmalade (can also oven-bake). Instead of air-frying, could also deep-fry the wings and glaze with yuzu marmalade after that. Or coat the wings with some corn starch, deep-fry then drizzle a yuzu sauce.

The yuzu wings tasted so yummy with the tangy and fragrant yuzu marmalade! I think up next I may try deep-frying chicken chop coated with corn starch then drizzle with a yuzu sauce =D

  1. Wash and pat dry the wings using kitchen towel.
  2. Marinate the wings with yuzu marmalade, soy sauce, cooking wine, salt and pepper, for at least 1 hour.

  1. Yummy. I like the idea of citrus in cooking and baking. And Yuzu? To die for! ;)

  2. Korean Citron is very good harmony with Chicken.
