Braised Chicken Wings with Spring Onion

Last weekend I went marketing at Box Hill Market, I realized the price for the old ginger has double! It is pricing at $49.99 per kg and I bought a piece of old ginger at AUD $20!! 

It has been a while since I last  posted my cooking on chicken, love this braised chicken wings. Hope my son will learn and come to love the chicken dishes because of this braised chicken wings. I'm adapting the recipe from Carol.

  4. If I see $50/kg, I will normally buy a small piece or not buying at all, hehe! I think ginger is expensive at this time, not very sure but I did remember seeing the same price in the fruit market here before. Love your braised chicken wings! Weather is getting cold now, should eat more ginger actually!

  6. Hi Ah Tze,
    My goodness, ginger are really that expensive over there! I just bought from Tesco here, 1 kg is only Rm2.59, which is about A$0.33/kg!! I have a pot of ginger plant in my garden, waiting for the rhizomes to mature!
    Your chicken wings looks so delicious! I've cooked ginger chicken today too, I love eating the ginger slices and would eat all of it. The ginger over there are darn so expensive, I'll finish every single slice!! Haha!

  7. Hi Ah Tze,

    Ginger is never cheap in Australia and the prices are depending on season. I always buy ginger in small amount. Otherwise, minced ginger in jar is also pretty good.

    Your braised chicken wings looks very comforting to eat for this wintery season.


  8. wow the last time i was in Australia, I bought ginger for like A$29.99 per kg, and I thought that was expensive already! Anyway love how the dish looks, and I like how thick the sauce looks!

  9. Oh geesh, that is an expensive ginger. But that dish looks heavenly yummy.
