the most important thing to have a nice and flavoured fried chicken wing is the marination. my own recipe for chicken wing marination is simple yet tasty. ( at least i think it’s tasty enough to share with you all , haha~~ 🙂 )
- chicken wings
- light soya sauce
- oyster sauce
- curry powder (optional)
- garlic cloves
- ground pepper
- corn flour
Simple simple, all you need to do is, crush some garlics, put in a big container, then put in chicken wings, soya and oyster sauce, curry powder, corn flour ( a little bit just to make sure the sauces coat on the wings) and pepper, mix all up.
then, take the plastic bag, transfer the marinated chicken wings and lay it flat in the fridge ( note: do not put in the freezer) for half or one day. the reason for using plastic bag is, you will be able to marinate all the wings with the marination gravy when they are lying flat. unlike using container, only the wings at below of the container will be covered with the sauce.
so, when you are ready to fried the wings, preheat the oil. make sure the oil is very very hot before you put in the wings. if the oil is not hot enough, the wings will stick on your pans, then the outcome will not be as pretty as we want it to be, although they will still taste nice.. 🙂
so, once the wings are in, do not stir it, let it fried and you turn down to low fire. Be very careful, you dont want the wing to be all black outside, but all raw inside. have patient, low fire, this will also prevent the chicken go burn ( the soya sauce will colour the wings, so, got to be careful) when you see the skin is a bit of dry (or crisp), then turn the wings to another side for even colouring and to cook another side.
until the wings are cooked, take it out to serve.
myself, normally i will leave out the curry powder, as i like it just that way. however, you can have the mixture, some with curry powder, another half without, try it out, you will know what you prefer.
additional info, some people will add eggs, all purpose flour and bread crumbs before they fried the wings. so it’s all up to you. I dont like batter too much, so, i just fried it that way. along with the fried wings, you can have some fresh cucumber salad, or coleslaw, or some other salad ….
