Cambodian stuffed chicken wings (slab moan baok) is a popular Cambodian appetiser consisting of crispy boneless chicken drumsticks, or chicken wings stuffed with yellow kreoung, and lemon grass pork seasoning. Many Cambodians make this recipe using chicken wings, but chicken drumsticks are easier to de-bone than chicken wings.
Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
Main Ingredients
  • 2 lbs ground pork
  • 6 pieces chicken thighs/leg quarters
  • 1 cup kroeung paste
  • 1 stalk of lemongrass
  • 1 piece of bird eye chilli pepper
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon knorr chicken broth mix
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoon palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of roasted peanut crushed


Chicken Rub Seasonings
  • 1 teaspoon crispy friend onion
  • 1 teaspoon crispy friend garlic
  • 1 teaspoon knorr chicken mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup (optional, for colours)


  1. First off, debone the chicken thighs/leg quarters. When you find the leg joint, just insert the knife right against the bone and slowly start detaching the skin from the bone, slowly taking the meat off the bone. The trick is to keep your knife as close to the bone as possible to avoid tearing the skin. Once the bone is removed, remove as much of the chicken meat as you can from the skin, making sure not to tear the skin. Place the removed chicken meat onto a cutting board and start chopping/grounding it into small pieces. Keep the skin (you will be stuffing it later), and throw the bones (or keep it if you want to use it to make chicken stock).
  2. Make kreoung paste based off this recipe. Keep one cup and freeze the rest to use in other Cambodian food recipes.
  3. Cut the lemongrass stalk into small slices. Combine the lemongrass with kreoung paste, and one bird eye chilli pepper in a mortar and pestle. Pound away until all the ingredients are crushed into a course paste. If you don`t have a mortar and pestle, use a coffee grinder instead, and do it in small portions. Once done, put the ingredients into a large bowl, and combine the rest of the main ingredients: ground pork, ground chicken pieces, salt, knorr chicken broth mix, fish sauce, palm sugar, and roasted peanuts.
  4. Combine all the chicken rubs seasoning ingredients in a bowl, along with the de-boned chicken thing/quarter (now only skin and tiny bit of chicken meat attached to it). Let it stand for at least 20 minutes in the fridge to let the seasoning soak in. Once done, you can start stuffing the chicken with the pork/kreoung mixture, making sure not to over-stuff.
  5. Place it on a grill and cook until brown. If you’re using an oven, cook it at 350 degree, turning it once after the 20 minutes mark, and letting it cook for another 20-30 minutes. Once cooked (check with a food thermometer for 165° Fahrenheit), take it out of the oven and pan fry it on your highest setting to give the skin that browning (less than 1 minutes on each side), Plate your chicken, and serve it as an appetizer with salad or as a meal with steamed rice and pickled vegetables.
