If you’re constantly on a tight schedule, it might be hard to find some time to prepare yummy meals for your family. Thankfully, there are plenty of options available now so you can prepare easy and convenient meals without compromising on quality and taste. Good news! Sadia has launched a new flavour under its So Shiok range - Nasi Lemak Chicken Wings. With a twist on local flavours, Sadia’s newest item infuses the nasi lemak flavour into crispy and tender chicken drumettes. With a similar taste to local dishes, it’ll bring out the “shiok” factor as you enjoy the products. We tried Sadia’s new Nasi Lemak Chicken Wings and its existing Sichuan Mala Chicken Wings - here’s our review! 

What we loved was that it was easy to prepare and everything was done within 15 minutes. All we had to do was take the wings straight from the freezer and pop them into the air fryer, at 200 degrees Celsius for about 10-12 minutes (longer if you prefer it to be crispier). Besides air-frying, other recommended cooking methods are oven roast and microwave.

We were intrigued by Sadia's Nasi Lemak Wings that had hints of coconut in the tender meat and a spicy kick that you'd normally get from the nasi lemak sambal chilli. The nasi lemak flavour was a little on the mild side but the skin was very crispy. If you're craving for nasi lemak but want a quick fix, the Nasi Lemak Chicken Wings are definitely something that’ll be able to satisfy your cravings without the hassle!

We were super excited to try the Sichuan Mala Chicken Wings too as it’s seasoned with real Sichuan pepper spices. While the wings were cooking in the air fryer, we could already smell the spices wafting throughout the kitchen. As we took a bite of the wings, we were able to get the slightly numbing taste of mala. It’s a great alternative if you’re craving that tingling sensation of mala. It’s like eating mild spice mala and would be perfect even if you’re not a fan of mala. Trust us, the Sichuan Mala Chicken Wings are addictive and satisfying!

The chicken wings were also juicy and rich in flavour, which sets them apart from the rest. The best part is that it’s fuss-free as you can get them at FairPrice, Cold Storage, Giant, Sheng Siong and RedMart. Plus, all of Sadia's products are MUIS halal-certified.
