Shanghai Chicken Wings

These Shanghai Chicken Wings are delicious when served as an appetizer. So easy and super tasty! A nice change from your average hot wings. This recipe is so good I have added it to my football agenda. I usually make chicken drumettes, but these are almost better.

  1. Whisk together hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic, chili flakes, and five-spice powder in a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat 3″ of peanut oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 360°. Working in batches, fry chicken in hot oil until the skin turns bubbly and golden brown and the meat is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. With a slotted spoon, place the cooked chicken in the bowl with sauce; toss until it is fully coated. Transfer the chicken to 2 small plates; serve with remaining sauce spooned over top.
