A Pungent Aromatic Enhanced Baked Chicken

“Nam Yue Fried Chicken” is of Hakka origin, next to the famous Hakka “Nam Yue Fried Pork Belly (客家炸肉)”. It is basically deep-fry Chicken marinated with Nam Yue (Fermented Red Bean Curd). On it’s own, Nam Yue has an “acquired taste” but with the right combination of ingredients, it can turn a dish into an unmistakably flavorful most aromatic experiences. Here, The VianD uses Chicken Wings and instead of adopting the traditional deep-fry method (Click for the Deep-fried version), this is oven-baked which is a lot less messy without the oil.  Here’s The VianD’s version of Oven Baked Nam Yue Chicken Wings (with fermented red bean curd).




  • Chicken Wings – with the tips removed and halved into drummettes and wings.


  • The all-important ingredients, Fermented Red Bean Curd.
  • Not in the picture – Light Soy, Sesame oil, Shaoxing wine, finely chopped Garlic/Ginger, Salt, Sugar, White Pepper and a small amount of Flour (just to give it a slight crunchy coating). All to taste. (** Note : Just dash of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice (no rocket scientific measurement here). Always taste your Seasoning !!!)



  • Step 1 : Marinate the Chicken Wings with the Marinating Ingredients for at least a few hours or better still overnight.
  • Step 2 : With the Wings at room temperature, arrange the Wings on a rack and bake for 10-15 minutes each side @ 180C. Make sure U have a rack to catch the dripping oil. Serve hot.
