Oriental Chicken Wings with Sate Sauce
Oriental chicken wings with sate sauce is an oriental dish but I think Pinoys will love this recipe. Many Pinoys like Asian cuisine that is why Chowking is still in business. What confuses me is the sate sauce because the popular term for this sauce is satay sauce or commonly known as peanut sauce use mostly in Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Malaysian and African cuisine. What I learned from a little research is the original term was “sate” and in came from China, in the Chiuchow area in Southern China. It was later passed on to Malaysia and Singapore by Chinese immigrants and the difference from the original is satay sauce use more peanuts than sate sauce.
There is a recipe below on how to make sate sauce but you can buy it on your local Chinese grocery store.
