Honey Glazed Chicken Wings

Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, from the Divine Comedy, is not the first thing you would associate with buying grilled chicken wings, but in Kota Kinabalu it is exactly what you will do.

Just next to the Filipino market there is a night market with lots of vendors selling fruit and produce, there is also a couple of seafood stalls, and most of all vendors selling charcoal grilled chicken wings. Most of the chicken wings are of the honey glazed type and not so heavily spiced, which one would think since they are pretty red in color. For me grilling chicken is a bit of a challenge since it is easy to under or over cook. Under cooked is just wrong and over cooked is so dry and fibrous. The ones I got were perfect. Tender and very juicy. I was a bit dissapointed due to that I thought they would be more spicy, but with the revelation that they were of the honey glazed type, the dissapointment subsided.

The honey and fat that drips down onto the charcoal grills makes for an insane amount of smoke! The smoke sticks to your clothes and if you plan to wear the same outfit the next day, you will be going around smelling like an old smokery. The most insane part was that we from the distance of around one kilometer, in our hotel, could see the smoke billowing from the market area.
