Who dosent love chicken wings?,its the one treat that always seems to be flying whenever they are on the menu,at weddings,birthday parties,cooperate events to mention but a few,they are always the first to get finished.
I have done wings before but the Asian kick in this one’s just did it for me,not to mention how easy it was to bring this together.
This can be served best cold as appetisers or as a side while you hosting your friends over,you can even have it as a main dish as they go quite well with fried rice,you are the boss in your kitchen so whichever floats your boat.
1 kg chicken wings
(Separate the drums from your flats.Discard the tips)
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt.
I started off by mixing up the flour,baking soda,paprika,cayenne pepper,black pepper & salt in a bowl.
Dust your wings with this flour mixture generously.
Place this in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to an hour,this is to allow our wings to infuse properly with the flour mixture.
As my wings were resting in the refrigerator I brought together the ingredients for my housin honey glaze.
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 teaspoons Chili flakes/powder
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons housin sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 green onions thinly sliced both white and green parts.
With the ingredients for our glaze set aside,I took my wings from the refrigerator
You can see how well the flour has infused with the wings.
Heat up some oil as we are going to deep fry our wings first.
Chicken wings take about 8 to 12 minutes and they are done,your wings should be golden brown in color and floating in the frying oil.
Take off your wings and set aside to drain excess fat.
In a pan heat up the rice vinegar and chilli flakes/powder,bring this to a simmer.
I then mixed in my honey,soy sauce & hausin sauce.Bring to a quick boil and simmer till it thickens,about 2 minutes.
Pour the glaze over the wings adding in the toasted sesame oil.
Garnish with spring onions and sesame seeds.serve hot or cold.
