Spicy Sesame Chicken Wings
Makes 8-10 servings


12 chicken wings
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tablespoon flour
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon chopped green onions
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds

1 egg
Canola Oil, for deep frying

Dipping Sauce

  • Trim any excess skin off the chicken wings. Cut off and discard the wing tips. Then cut each wing into two pieces at joint.
  • In a bowl, combine the cornstarch, flour, sugar and salt and mix well. Add the green onions, sesame seeds, garlic, soy sauce and egg and whisk together to form a thin batter.
  • Place the chicken in the batter and mix well to coat.
  • Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least six hours or, preferably, overnight, stirring once or twice.
  • To prepare the dipping sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
