Chinese Restaurant Fried Chicken Wings

Chinese Restaurant Fried Chicken Wings

Crispy fried chicken wings, with a refreshing soy sauce flavor.
Goes great with beer!

Ingredients: serves 2 to 3

Chicken wings - the midsection and the tip
Salt and pepper
as desired (plentiful)
Seasonings 2:
Sake (Shaoxing wine, if available)
3 tablespoons
Seasonings 3:
Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
Chicken stock powder
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
Egg white
2 tablespoons
Oil for deep frying
Lard (adjust as desired)
as needed
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Flavor the chicken with seasonings 1 - 3 in order. Let sit in the refrigerator for half a day. Adding cuts along the bone helps the flavor to marinate better.
2. Discard any excess water and massage in the egg whites. Mix in the flour until it becomes like a loose mud. ☆ Do this just before frying!
3. Fry in 160℃ oil for 3 minutes. Once they float up, remove and let sit for about 5 minutes.
4. Fry again in 180℃ oil until they're golden brown and crispy! Eat 'em while they're hot!
5. Great as-is, but they're even more delicious with some Szechuan pepper!
