How To Make Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings
Enjoy a delicious bite of these salt and pepper chicken wings for a tasty dish! This Chinese-style recipe is made with red chili flakes.
Pour enough vegetable oil into a pot so that it is about 2-inch deep. Heat on medium-high until the oil reaches 350 degrees F.
- Whisk flour, cornstarch, and water in a medium-sized bowl until no lumps remain. Pat chicken wings dry with paper towel. Coat chicken in slurry and then place into hot oil.
The chicken will be fried twice. Work in small batches, about 6 to 8 pieces at a time. Fry for 8 minutes. The chicken will be a light golden color. Drain excess oil on paper towels. Set chicken aside to wait for the second fry. Continue until all the wings have been fried once for 8 minutes.
Then, again working in small batches, fry chicken a second time for 8 minutes. Chicken should now be golden and crunchy. Set finished chicken aside. Repeat with remaining chicken until all wings have been fried twice.
In a wok, add olive oil and bring to medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add garlic. Cook and stir for about 1 minute until the aroma of garlic comes out and garlic is lightly browned.
Lower heat and add in chili flakes and scallions and cook for about 1 minute on low heat. Turn off heat and place the finished chicken into the wok and toss the chicken in the garlic mixture. Sprinkle white pepper mix evenly over chicken. Taste and adjust as needed.
Serve and enjoy.
