As usual, Monday and Tuesday are my “anything what I want to do day before 3 PM”. And as usual, I do my uninterrupted weekly groceries shopping day. Now I could understand why girls and women enjoy their shopping so much. You really could find the pleasure of being free and buy anything that you want. Except in my case, I do that for my household and kitchen groceries not clothes and any other women stuffs. No offense girls, I never seem to enjoy clothes and women accessories shopping. I could hold on to my old clothes and not buying new stuffs until they just give up on me.

Back to the chicken wing journey from Woolworths to my kitchen. Woolworths sold this bulk pack of chicken wings which sounds economical and ended up me on buying them. I had no idea at that time what I am going to do with them. I thought just buy them first and figure it out later what I can do with them. Anyway, I ended up making this dish because it was almost 2 o’clock in the afternoon and I had to pick up my toddler at kindy. I need something quick and easy for my lunch and there was it Fried Chicken with Sweet Soy Sauce.

If you would like to share this dish with the little one, don’t slice the chillies up. Leave them as whole, so the adult could still enjoy the spiciness of the chillies on their own plate.


  • 1.5 kg of chicken wings
  • juice from 1 lime to marinade
  • salt to marinade
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 clove of shallot, sliced
  • half punnet of cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • small chillies, according to your preferences
  • 3/4 cup of sweet soy sauce
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep frying and stir frying


  1. Marinade chicken wings with lime juice and salt for at least 15 minutes. Deep fry and set aside.
  2. Heat generous amount of oil in the wok. Add garlic and shallot, stir for few seconds until you can smell the fragrance.
  3. Add chillies and cherry tomatoes, and stir for a minute.
  4. Add sweet soy sauce to the side of the wok and stir.
  5. Add a little bit of salt (not too much because the fried chickens have enough saltiness).
  6. Add in the fried chicken and stir to coat and combine.
