My Favorite Dish: Wings & Beans


Unfortunately, I have not done any baking in a while because university just takes over almost every aspect of my life, so I thought it would be nice to share with you all some of my favorite dishes. There are a couple, so I would like to share them one by one over time.

Chicken wings and white beans in tomato sauce with white rice is a dish my mother made for me ever since I was a little girl. It is a variation of a typical Surinamese dish called BBR with chicken (brown beans, rice and chicken). It's delicious with brown beans, too, but the white beans in the tomato sauce makes the dish a bit sweeter and I love that in combination with lots of spices and heat.

Once you get the hang of this recipe, you'll notice how easy it is to make. You are going to need the following ingredients: 1 medium onion, 1/2-1 chili, 2 cloves of garlic, salt as desired, 2 tea spoons of black pepper, 4 tea spoons of cumin, 2 table spoons of soya, 10 chicken wings, 1 big jar of white beans in tomato sauce and white rice. You will also need sunflower oil. This dish is meant for at least four persons




Preparations: 
Cook the rice according to the recipe on the package. Cut the chicken wings in half, then clean them with water in a bowl. Get a wok pan and turn on the heat real high. While the wok pan is becoming hotter, make sure you sprinkle a bit of salt on the chicken wings. Now that the pan is hot, add enough tablespoons of oil (to fry the chicken wings) in the wok pan and let it get hot as well.


Fry the chicken wings in the wok pan until they're golden brown (trust me, this is the way to go. I have tried different and healthier variations, but the chicken tasted really strange -bland- in the end). In the mean time you can cut the onions, chili and garlic. When finished, take the chicken wings out of the wok pan and place them in a clean bowl, remove two-thirds of the sunflower oil into a a jar that can take the heat (I usually use an old glass jar). If you'd rather not do this, then you have to work with two wok pans.



  1. Put the heat on medium and add the onions, chili and garlic and stir it. Let it sauté for a short while, but do not let it burn. 
  2. Then add the chicken wings and stir this too. The key to this dish is stirring and letting the spices and herbs mix. In the mean time, boil some water in an electric water boiler. 
  3. After letting the chicken wings sit for a couple of minutes, add the black pepper and a pinch of salt. Stir and let the spices mix for a minute. 
  4. Add the soya sauce and cumin. Stir and let it sit for a minute. The chicken wings will have a dark color now.
  5. Add the white beans in tomato sauce, then fill up the wok pan with boiled water until you don't see the chicken anymore or until the pan is almost full. Stir slowly.
  6. Turn up the heat until it starts boiling, then quickly put it down to medium-low. Let is simmer for 30 minutes. Stir every now and then. Check half-way through if the flavor is as desired, I tend to add extra chili at this point. 

After 30 minutes your meal should be ready to serve and this is what it usually looks like with me: 


I love home-made sauces a lot, so I always take extra haha. Well, I will be enjoying this meal greatly. I'm so addicted to it, because I will finish the whole wok pan filled with food. Oh-so yummy. I hope you found it interesting and if you try it, do let me know how it was! What is your favorite meal? And what did you think of mine?

  11. My recipe is very simple. Go to your nearest chicken wing place and order wings, fries, hot sauce and lots of beer. It's a little expensive but with a nice MMA fight going on, totally worth it.
