Who doesn’t like chicken wings? I for one am crazy over it. These crispy, sweet and sticky wings are addictive. The hint of ginger and a bit of chili flakes compliments really well with the wings. This was indeed a finger licking good. Even Carlos who is not a big fan of wings ate a whole lot of it. If you like wings do give this recipe a try and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
12 chicken wings – clean, cut and tips removed
Marinate for the wings:
1 tbsp of ginger juice
3/4 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
½ cup water
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp grated ginger
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
Some chili flakes
Some toasted sesame for garnish
1. Marinate the chicken wings for at least 2 hours. Combined both flour and mix well. Add in the beaten egg to the wings follows by the flour. Mix it with your hand until they’re thoroughly coated.
2. Heat up some oil and deep fry the wings over medium high heat in two batches (do not overcrowd it or else you wings won’t be crispy) until golden brown. Remove and drain well on paper towel.
3. In another large pan, combined water, sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger and vinegar. Bring it up to a boil and cook until the mixture becomes thick and syrupy or until it started to foam (it should be thick like honey)
4. Turn off the heat; add in the fried wings, sesame seeds and chili flakes. Stir and toss until the sauce completely coated the wings. Serve warm or at room temperature.
