- 10 to 15 Large Chicken Wings/ 30 to 35 Drumettes
- 1 ½ Cups Regular Cooking Flour
- ½ Cup Cornstarch
- Vegetable Oil/ Sunflower Oil/ Rice Oil
- 50 grams Lard
For Preparing Marinating Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
- 1 tablespoon Shaoxing Wine
- ½ tablespoon Garlic Powder
- 2 teaspoons White pepper
- 2 teaspoons Black Pepper
- 1 Beaten Egg
- 1 tablespoon Fish sauce
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- ½ tablespoon Chicken Stock Powder
- 1 Cup Regular Flour
- ½ Cup Cornstarch
Step 1: Cut and Pat dry the Chicken Wings
Take 5 to 6 large whole chickens and separate the wings from them. You can use drumettes instead. For drumettes, collect at least 30 drumettes.
Place them in a strainer and wash them with clean water. The wings or drumettes should be skin-on to have an authentic Chinese taste. Pat the chicken dry.
Step 2: Marinate the Chicken Wings
Take a large mixing bowl to prepare the marinating sauce. Take ½ tablespoon of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of white pepper, 1 teaspoon of salt, ½ tablespoon of chicken stock powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of black pepper in the bowl. Mix them by stirring first.
Then add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 1 tablespoon of Shaoxing wine, and 1 tablespoon of fish sauce and mix them well. Finally, add a well-beaten egg, 1 cup of regular flour, and ½ cup of cornstarch. Mix them with a beater. The marinating sauce is ready to use.
Now put the chicken wings in the bowl. Use your hands to mix the wings and sauce nicely. You can also cover the bowl tightly and shake it well. After marinating, store them in a cool, dry place overnight.
Step 3: Mix Chicken Wings with Flour and Cornstarch
In this step, take the bowl full of marinated chicken wings. Put 1 ½ cups of regular cooking flour and ½ cup cornstarch on the chicken. Again, mix with your hands and ensure the flour mixture reaches the chicken wings.
Step 4: Deep Fry
Fill a deep fryer with vegetable oil, rice oil, or sunflower oil. Turn on the switch for the deep fryer. Set the timer to 5 minutes and the temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Close the lid and preheat the oil.

After 10 minutes, open the lid and lift up the basket. Flip the chicken pieces and again set the timer to 10 minutes. Again, deep fry for 10 minutes.
You will find your chicken to be golden brown. Take them away from the deep fryer. Place them on a serving plate.
