  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). While the wings are cooking, combine the soy sauce, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in a saucepan, and warm over medium heat. When chicken is done, drain water (may be reserved for other uses as a broth), and pour in the soy sauce mixture. Stir to coat all of the wings, then place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

  • Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the outsides are crispy. Baste with sauce as desired while cooking.

This is definetly NOT Ethiopian chicken. Being of Ethiopian descent I was wandering how the ingredients were going to come out having an Ethiopian flavor... well it didn't. So if you're looking for Ethiopian this isn't it. The soy sauce should have been a dead give-away. As for the taste of the dish itself I thought it bland as well. Read More

The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because the recipe does not direct you to marinate the chicken overnight or all day. I let it marinate for 5 hours and that was not enough. Also be sure to keep the onions- don't throw them away after you have drained the water off! Marinate them with the chicken bake them and serve them. Each time I have made this dish my guests have gone nuts for the onion pieces which somehow do an amazing job of carrying the various flavors of clove cinnamon and ginger. The onions are so popular that I now use them to compliment other dishes such as smoked fish baked sweet potatoes and roast turkey. Read More

I was expecting "Ethiopian" flavors from the title. Having grown up in Ethiopia I can assuredly say that this isn't Ethiopian... it's more like some kind of Asian combination from the seasonings. Read More

Two variants -- One time I ran short on soy sauce and went with 1/3 cup soy sauce and 1/3 cup white wine; family loved it--we call it Drunken Ethiopian Chicken. Also have used it on boneless thighs just saute the thighs with the onions and then pour the sauce over and reduce worked great! Read More

My 9 year old son 90 year old father-in-law and I LOVED these. You could actually taste the cinnamon and ginger. I had left out the onion because my son doesn't like them but I used 1/2 teaspoon onion powder. Fabulous for any age. Read More

Easy so economical can be prepared in large volumn to be frozen and simply reheated when any occasion calls for it. Another recipe dieters can say 'thank you' for. Read More
