Tom Yum Chicken Wings Recipe

Different brands of tom yum paste have varying saltiness and flavour , so adjust the seasonings to taste accordingly. To ensure evenly cooked wings and easy clean up, rest the chicken pieces on a wire rack with a foil-lined tray beneath while baking.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 25 mins


  • 5 chicken wings about 400 grams
  • 1/2 stalk lemongrass (only the white part) finely snipped
  • 1 kaffir lime leaf finely snipped
  • 5 shallots peeled and sliced
  • 1 heaped tbsp instant tom yum paste
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp cooking oil


  1. Prepare the wings by cutting to 3 portions at the joint (drummette, mid joint and end tip). Freeze the end tips for making chicken stock. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a food processor and blend until the paste is smooth.
  3. Coat chicken evenly in the tom yum paste. Chill marinated chicken in fridge, for at least half an hour.
  4. Arrange chicken pieces on wire rack with foil-lined tray beneath. Bake at preheated oven of 200°C (392°F) for 25 minutes, turning once halfway. Garnish and serve.

    Besides chicken wing, what other meat can we use?

      You can use chicken leg/thigh but the cooking time will be slightly longer as the pieces will be bigger.
