Twice fried chicken wings

Sometimes I can stare at my fridge for ages and not get a single strand of inspiration to cook anything and sometimes I just feel inspired. Eating the chicken wings at Duck and Rice was very inspiring and I knew I had to try and make them.

When I came to the Black Pig Butchers there was a bag of chicken wings for two pounds, there was eight wings and I took it as a sign for me to actually make the chicken wings.

First of all I was intrigued as I have never thought of cutting the chicken wings lengthways. Just the middle part of the wings.

I didn’t ask them how the chicken wings were made but I had an idea that I thought I would try.

  • 8 chicken wings, the middle part with 2 bones only, cut in half lengthways

  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine
  • 4 dl or 2 cups of goundnut oil

Heat the oil up and fry the chicken wings golden. Let them drain.

Before serving heat the oil up again and and fry the wings a second time to make them extra crispy. Serve with a dipping sauce.

I think if the chicken wings are marinated over night they will have even more taste but they were delicious and I will make them again Now I just need to think of whom to invite and try them on!

I am bringing a big plate over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday. If you have cooked, or need inspiration and ideas come and join us!

  2. What an inspired idea! That part of the wing is always so difficult to eat.
