Super easy and extremely tender claypot oyster chicken wings with onion, vegetables and garlic gloves at bottom, making a well balanced one pot main dish.
I get this inspiration from a local restaurants name as "HuangJiHuang" which creates a very lovely way of cooking meats and vegetables together with a well combined sauce. Chicken wing is always on our list especially for children. Baked chicken wings and fried versions are always my daughter's favorite snacks. This claypot version (if no claypot, you can use any other pot with thicker bottom like casting iron pot) to create almost the same tender texture with baked and fried. Vegetables and aromatics are placed at the bottom, so there is no direct touch between chicken wings and the hot pot and consequently the thicken wings are cooked by the gentle powder of the vapor, which helps to produce a super tender inside texture.
In addition, the out skin is perfectly flavored because of the thickness of the sauce. The vegetables and aromatics especially the garlic cloves are the super additions to the dish. After absorbing the chicken juicy and combined sauce, they become so yummy. You can use other easy to cook vegetables.
Use claypot or caste iron pot, which can help to store the heat.
The soy sauce might be slightly salty so adjust the salt if necessary.
You can use other vegetables like sliced potatoes, sweet potatoes or melons. They can be the amazing part of this dish. By the way, the garlic cloves are unbelievably delicious.

This was dinner tonight. It was exceptional. Honestly, the recipe didn't look all that exciting to me, but thought I'd do something with chicken wings other than douse them with hot sauce. I followed the recipe fairly closely, but used a bit more ginger than called for, and used white pepper instead of black for the combined sauce. I didn't have any green onions, and can imagine how over the top this make take this dish. In addition to onions, peppers, and garlic I also used cabbage. This recipe is a keeper. This, Elaine, for such a wonder recipe.
Thanks for trying even through it looks not exciting at all. I believe it must be a trust for me. Both the chicken wings and other side ingredients are so great. Happy cooking! By the way you can cook beef, fish and lots of other ingredient with the same method. Happy cooking!
This is another very delicious recipe. Honestly, I haven't made anything following Elaine's blog that I haven't wanted to cook again. Some I don't cook often because my children can't handle spicy food. This chicken dish I know I'll make again and again because it's easy and everyone in my family thinks it's really good. Also because I used yellow onions, mushrooms and thinly sliced potatoes as the vegetable portion, I didn't feel the need to cook a separate vegetable dish to go with this.
Only caveat is that I wasn't sure if the garlic and green onions were supposed to be used in the chicken marinade or fried up with the vegetables or both. I did the later because I didn't want them to burn when frying the wings.
Great recipe Elaine,
I tried it and it has such a soothing taste. I really love it. I'm a little confused about the ginger and the green onion though. For the ginger I guess the diced part is used in step 2 and the sliced one in step 5. But how about the green onion? It's used in both steps, too an the recipe doesn't say how much is used in each step. Or is the green onion from the marinade used later in the dish, too?
it was my fault... after watching the video again it becomes quite clear how green and red onions as well as ginger are used. I think it would be helpful to add the red onions to the ingredients list.
Am preparing this delicious sounding recipe-a little confused. The video shows a red onion being cut but I’m not seeing it in the written recipe. The video shows 1/2 red onion being chopped- is that the amount that is supposed to be used, or do you not use the red onion in your recipe?
I’ll go by your recipe as written this time, but am curious.
Sorry Bonnie, I missed the red onion in the recipe section. But it does not influence the flavors and the chicken. The bottom vegetables can be replaced. I already updated this recipe and hope it turned out good for you.
Very pleased with this recipe. I was excited to try this recipe because it is made on the stove top and use oyster sauce, an all-time-favourite in my family. I did not have a claypot, so I used my trusted pan and the result was really delicious. Will definitely made it again
Thank Sakura for your lovely feedback. All thicker pot works for this recipe. Happy cooking!
