My Version of Chicken Wings with a Spicy Vinaigrette

I found the idea for this dish  on the Steamy Kitchen  via Tastespotting.  The idea of a spicy Vinaigrette really appealed to me and I thought it would be perfect with my new favourite way of preparing chicken wings – Double Frying.  Makes for a wonderfully crisp chicken wing.  I have  the Ravenous Couple to thank for this method.

I made some adjustments to the sauce to suit my taste. 

Chicken Wings with a Spicy Vinaigrette
Adapted from:
recipe from Momofuku cookbook by David Chang

30 wings pieces
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup corn starch
salt and pepper

Spicy Vinaigrette

2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 Tablespoon Chili Garlic Sauce
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon light Soy sauce
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
2 tablespoons Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Double Fried Chicken Wings

Heat oil to 350°F.

Place flour, corn starch, salt and pepper in zip lock bag.

Add chicken wings and shake to coat.

Fry wings in batches, about 10 at a time for about 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown.   Drain on paper towels.

When all the wings have been fried, increase oil temperature to 375°F and cook wings a second time for 4 to 5 minutes.  Drain and toss with vinaigrette.

    Oh, this is an interesting recipe. I love wings and this sounds so delicious! Photos are gorgeous as usual!

  3. The vinagraitte is soooooo good. These wings will be on the menu often. I'm thinking of making fried or baked chicken drumsticks and using the same sauce.

  4. Linda says:

    Oy boy I have everything here to make this sauce…My kid would love this…I like the idea of of the baked drumsticks…gotta think about that…Looks absolutely delicious!

  5. Linda, I often bake wings or drumsticks, but I have to tell you, the double fried version is superior to baked.

  6. These really do look lovely. The double frying technique that you use makes for delicious wings. That sauce is perfect.

    I hate to admit it, but the wings are one of my favorite parts of the chicken. They absorb flavors so well and have so much yummy skin to crisp up. I'm looking forward to trying this double frying technique. Thanks Ann for the recipe and the scrumptious photos.
