Failsafe golden soy chicken wings

First - there is no photo - I had the 3 kids on my own and needed a quick dinner. I pulled these out of the freezer with some woolworths select chips which are failsafe and voila 30 minutes later we had a super easy, very yummy dinner. I will definitely make them again and will come back and post a photo.

13/5 - Raw photo added, cooked photo to follow :)

This recipe is modified from the Honey soy stir fry chicken winglets recipe contained on ForumThermomix.


2 cloves garlic
60ml japanese soy sauce (1/2 MC)
2 tbs golden syrup
2 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp canola oil.

1.2 kgs chicken wings


Pretty much unaltered from original

To make marinade:

Place garlic in TM bowl on reverse speed 4 for 20 seconds. Remove skins from bowl and chop on speed 7 for 10 seconds (or until all chopped up). Add the rest of the marinade ingredients and mix on speed 5 for 10 seconds.

Add chicken wings (in 2 batches) and stir in TM bowl on reverse for 1 minute at spoon speed.

Place all coated chicken and remaining marinade into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight. Instead of putting them in the fridge I put them in the freezer.

To cook:

Place chicken pieces into TM bowl and cook on reverse, spoon speed on Varoma Temp for 30 minutes. Place Varoma on top.


Wonderful! The marinade was subtle and did not overpower the chicken. The chicken was melt in your mouth - fall off the bone. My 3 year old who often doesn't eat much had thirds. Baby Kate loved the chicken and ate lots of it.

It is impossible to do takeaway when you eat Failsafe foods so this is as close to takeaway as we get. I intend on making up a couple of batches and always having a batch in the freezer for those nights when everything falls apart!

Failsafe note

I have read conflicting information on sesame seeds being low or moderate - my dietician says moderate, so just keep this in mind.

Also, soy sauce is high in msg/glutomates... I have challenged soy sauce and Kate is ok with it so I have some flavour in teh way of soy sauce back (yay) but this may not be appropriate for those who are particularly sensitive to MSG.


  1. Hi Rae - great site, great work - especially being a working mum with kids with food intolerances. Great stuff - congratulations

  2. Hi, Is Japanese Soy Failsafe? Please tell me it is so?!
