Deep Fried Chicken Wings

Here’s a wonderful recipe for deep-fried chicken wings with a deliciously sticky, spicy, smoky sauce.

In the Luchito test kitchen, we didn’t stop eating these until they were all gone – they are seriously addictive.

We used our chipotle honey along with a little of our chipotle paste to give it an extra kick. A sprinkle of sesame seeds gives this dish a lovely texture.

How to make it

  1. Mash the ginger and garlic to a paste in a pestle and mortar.
  2. Put the paste in a saucepan with the sesame oil, soy sauce, chipotle chilli paste, chipotle chilli honey, vinegar and brown sugar. Cook over a medium heat for a few minutes until it becomes thick and sticky.
  3. Put the flour, corn flour and 3 tablespoons of the sesame seeds in a bowl.
  4. Dry the wings with paper towel and toss in the flour mix.
  5. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or large, heavy-based pan to 160°C (325°F), or when a piece of bread sizzles when dropped in.
  6. In batches of 5 or 6, carefully lower the wings into the oil, moving them gently using a slotted spoon. Cook for about 6–7 minutes or until the wings start to turn brown.
  7. Remove and allow to drain on a rack over kitchen paper.
  8. Increase the temperature of your fryer to 180°C (350°F).
  9. Again, working in batches, lower the wings into the oil for a second cook for a further 4–5 minutes. You will see them get crispier and turn a nice golden shade.
  10. Drain on kitchen paper, then add to the warm sauce.
  11. Toast remaining sesame seeds in a dry pan for a few minutes, then sprinkle over the wings with the coriander.
