Ingredients
  • 1.5 pound chicken wings (about 10)
  • For marinating the chicken wings:
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • For the batter:
  • half cup flour
  • half cup potato starch
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • For frying the chicken:
  • several cups oil depend on the size of your frying pan so the oil is deep enough to cover the chicken wings when frying
  • Sweet and Sour Sauce:
  • half tablespoon oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. Marinate chicken wings with salt and pepper for an hour (at least 30 minutes to make sure the chicken absorbs the flavor)
  2. Mix flour and potato starch on a plate, set aside
  3. Beat two eggs in a small bowl, set aside
  4. Coat the chicken wings first with flour mixture then with egg mixture, last with flour mixture again
  5. Heat oil under medium-high heat until reached temperature (350 degrees F), test by inserting a chopstick, if the oil starts to bubble immediately, it's ready
  6. Deep fry the chicken wings for 10 minutes, stir occasionally, until cooked through and golden brown (cook in batches if needed, make sure oil returns temperature before adding the next batch), fish out, let sit on paper towel
  7. Turn to high heat, deep fry the chicken wings again for about 5 minutes (double frying method keeps the chicken wings crispy), remove and place on paper towels
  8. To make the sauce, first whisk ketchup, honey, rice vinegar and water in a container
  9. Heat a skillet with low heat with a touch of oil added, pan fry the minced garlic until fragrant and browned
  10. Pour in the honey ketchup mixture, heat with low heat until the sauce starts to thicken, stir occasionally to avoid burning
  11. Turn off the heat and coat the chicken wings evenly with the sauce, serve hot and enjoy!
