How to make it

  • 1. Remove the tip of each chicken wing and cut in half at the joint to create 2 pieces. Rinse pieces under cold water and set to dry for at least 10 minutes. In a heavy pot such as a dutch oven, pour in canola or peanut oil to a depth of 2 inches. Heat over medium-high for about 7, 8 minutes or check for a deep-fry thermometer reading of 350°F.
  • 2. In the meantime, combine sauce ingredients of soy, vinegar, sugar, honey, ketchup, sesame oil, red chili garlic sauce, and the powder seasoning (or adding the pulsed fresh ginger and garlic) in a small sauce pan. Boil until sauce slightly thickens and set at low heat. Adjust the spiciness of the sauce by slowly adding the red chili garlic sauce/red chili peppers and tasting for desired taste.
  • 3. In a large mixing bowl, mix 1 cup cornstarch and salt and pepper. Individually coat each chicken wing pieces with the cornstarch and set aside.
  • 4. In another bowl, whisk the remaining 3/4 cup cornstarch, and 3/4 cup water together to make a runny, liquidy batter. Add each chicken wing one at a time and coat well. Shake off excess batter and fry the chicken in batches for about 10~13 minutes, until golden brown, then drain on paper towels. Do not overcrowd the pan when frying each batch.
  • 5. Fry half of the chicken wings without the sauce and plate. For the flavored wings, simply coat chicken pieces with a brush or by tossing together in a mixing bowl. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with sesame seeds and thin green onions slices. Enjoy and eat while hot!
