Soy-Glazed Chicken Wings

What better way to start a recipe blog is do to it with one of my ultimate favorite comfort food! I have done this so many times that I feel like I’m a pro in making soy-glazed chicken wings. :))) Kidding aside, who wouldn’t be craving for these bad boys! It’s crunchy, it’s greasy, and it has the salty-sweet goodness! Best served as an appetizer for dinner parties, picnics, watching a game or most definitely eaten the Filipino way(which is pairing everything with RICE!).  Yes, Filipinos love their rice so don’t judge.

This is my recreation of the fried chicken wings and generously smothered with the yummy soy glaze.

Soy-Glazed Chicken Wings 

|20 minutes| 6 servings|

Ingredients: Fried Chicken Wings

  • 1 lb chicken wings
  • 3 cups cornstarch
  • salt and pepper

Ingredients: Soy Glaze

  • 1 small onion, brunoise
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch ginger, brunoise
  • 1 cup light soy sauce (I used Kikkoman for this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 5 Tbsp brown sugar
  • sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • scallions,sliced thinly for garnish

Directions:

  1. Pat dry chicken wings. Season the wings with salt and pepper then dredge chicken in cornstarch.
  2. Deep fry until cooked all the way then place on paper towel to drain excess oil.
  3. To make the glaze, saute the onions, garlic and ginger in a sauce pan until aromatic. Pour in the mirin and let it evaporate half-way through then add the sugar and soy sauce.
  4. Place over low-medium heat and stir until sugar is fully dissolved. Add more sugar if you prefer the sauce to be sweeter.
  5. In a small bowl, place corn starch and a tablespoon of the soy glaze mixture. Mix to make a slurry. Pour into the saucepan and stir until slightly thickened.
  6. Toss the chicken wings in the soy glaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Garnish scallions on top. Enjoy!
