Oriental Chicken Wings


from HORS D'OEUVRE by June Dutton & Edith Vanocur.



10 chicken wings
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. dry sherry
1/2 tbsp. anise seed
1/2 tsp. MSG
1/3 cup water


Cut tips off the wings and discard. Then cut wings into two at the joint, for easier eating. Wash in warm water and dry.

Put cleaned wings and above ingredients into a heavy pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to insure even color. Remove cover and simmer for another 15 minutes until about 1/2 cupful of liquid remains. Baste frequently.

Spoon liquid on wings and serve hot or cold. Even more tasty if made a day ahead. Yields 20 pieces.

Sodium note: by modern standards, MSG would be regarded as optional, at best. There's 155mg sodium per tablespoon of soy sauce - probably more than enough for most tastes, per chicken piece.
