With crispy skin on the outside and tender meat inside, these wings are e trusty bia hoi stand-by, and also very popular for family get-togethers.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
9 chicken wings
125g cornflour
vegetable oil, for deep-frying
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
60ml fish sauce
55g sugar
1 long red chilli, cut into thin rings
coriander
mint

Marinde

Quantity Ingredient
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Cut each chicken wing through the joints into three pieces and place in a shallow tray. Mix together the marinade ingredients, pour over the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to allow the flavours to develop.
  2. Remove the chicken from the marinade and dry thoroughly with paper towel. Place on a tray and dust liberally with the cornflour. Toss the wings through the cornflour and shake to remove any excess.
  3. Heat about 4 cm of oil in a wok or frying pan over medium heat. Gently place the chicken pieces in the oil and fry for 8-10 minutes, until the skin is golden brown and crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel.
  4. Carefully empty the oil into a container for later use and wipe the wok clean.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, fish sauce, sugar and 60 ml water, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  6. Return the wok to the heat, add the fish sauce mixture and reduce over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, until syrupy. Add the chilli and the chicken wings and toss to coat the wings with the hot salty sauce.
  7. Serve on a platter, scattered with the herbs.
