Korean Fried Chicken Wings with Ginger Soy Glaze

  • 2-3 lbs chicken wings (tips discarded, and wings cut at the joints-washed and patted dry)
  • 1 cup of Wondra flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Soy Ginger Glaze 

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup thinly sliced ginger
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey or corn syrup
  • 1-2 tbsp garlic chile sauce
  • optional: 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds

First prep the chicken wings, wash, and pat dry with paper towel. In a mixing bowl, combine about 1 cup of Wondra flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge the chicken wings in the flour mixture to get a fine light coat.

Heat some cooking oil in a deep fryer or a deep frying pan to about 350 degrees. Fry chicken wings, in batches if necessary, about 5 min. Remove, place on a rack and allow to cool.

Now in a small saucepan, add the water, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, chile, sugar and bring to boil. Then add the honey/corn syrup and reduce by half and it will be a thick maple syrup like consistency and set aside.

Re-fry the wings until crispy golden brown, about another 5-8 minutes. Drain on frying rack or paper towels. Dredge or brush on the soy ginger glaze. We also like to finish with some toasted sesame seeds on top.
