(Grilled hot lemon grass chicken wings)
Khmer Krom grilled chicken wings with hot spicy lemon grass and kumquat juice is very tasty. This recipe is excellent to make for take along on a long trip or picnic. My family favorite picnic foods are hot lemon grass chicken wings, sticky or steamed jasmine rice wraps in banana leaf, and ginger cabbage salad.
The secret for best tasting chicken wings is marinade sauce and time. Give wings times to bathe in marinade sauce, and take time to cook wings on low heat grill.
