Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings
I decided I really wanted to recreate a Chinese Take Away favourite of mine: Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings.
The crispy batter that’s been seasoned with salt, pepper and Chinese five spice, it’s just so fragrant and tasty!
I must say I’m not the best at exact measurements but cooking is about the experimentation, right?
- Chicken Wings (both ends chopped off at the joints)
- 2 chillies, chopped (deseeded if you desire)
- 1 small white onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoon Black peppercorns, grinded
- 2 teaspoon Rock salt
- 2 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
- 1 Spring Onion, chopped
- Oil for frying
For the batter:
- 1 Teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
- 100g white flour
- Water, enough to turn the mixture into a batter
Heat up the oil in a pan ready for frying.
Mix the ingredients together to make the batter and set aside.
Get your good chopping knife out and chop both ends off the chicken wings – you don’t want those bits and they can used to make a stock for another meal.
Pop the chicken into the batter and coat. Carefully put the chicken in the hot oil and cook until golden. I had to do mine in batches. To be fair this could probably be started off in the oil to set the batter and completed in the oven for a healthier version.
While they’re cooking, chop the onion, spring onion and chillies and pop it into a wok/frying pan and cook until softened. Add the salt, pepper and five-spice and set aside.
Once the chicken is cooked, drain on kitchen paper and then add it to the onion spice mixture and serve up!
Note: You could use chicken breast if you want a healthier alternative.
