Ingredients

Chicken

  • 2 lbs Chicken Wings (around 18-20 pieces)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 Cups Neutral Oil for Frying (no taste)

Sauce

  • 2 Clove Garlic
  • 1/2 Inch Ginger
  • 1/2 Cup Japanese Sake
  • 1/4 Cup Swerve/Monkfruit
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/8 tsp Salt

Topping

  • 5 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Neutral Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Togarashi
  • 2 Stalks Green Onions

Instructions

  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Finely mince 2 cloves of garlic and set into a stove top pot.
  • Slice ginger and add to the stove top pot.
  • Combine the rest of the sauce ingredients into the stove top pot - Japanese sake, Swerve/Monkfruit and salt. Bring to boil on medium heat and once boiling, reduce to and keep on simmer.
  • Place chicken onto a sanitary surface and sprinkle with salt and black pepper on both sides. Set aside.
  • Add enough oil to cover about 1/2 inch of pan of choice (we use a cast iron with good results). Heat oil up to 375F (if you don't have a thermometer, just wait until the oil starts to lightly smoke).
  • In the meantime, finely mince the optional remaining garlic cloves and add into a small fry pan. Add 1 tbsp of neutral oil and place on medium heat. Continue to cook until the garlic is fried and turns light brown (around 1-2 minutes). Once done, transfer to a holding bowl, sprinkle in togarashi, mix well and set aside.
  • Finely chop green onions and set aside.
  • Once the oil is ready, carefully add 1/2 of the chicken batch inside (around 10 pieces). Cook for 3 minutes and then rotate and cook the other side for another 3 minutes. Note - if you can comfortably fit all the chicken in 1 go, do so by all means.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack for 1 minute. If you do not have a cooling rack, place on a plate with a paper towel to soak up oil. After 1 minute, place the cooked wings back into the oil and cook for an additional 1 minute per side and transfer to holding plate. This process is called ‘refrying’ or ‘double-frying’, which is the trick to get something super crunchy. Repeat the frying process with the 2nd batch.
  • Once all the batches are cooked, take a piece of wing, dip it into the sauce and place onto a serving plate. After dipping all the wings, top with optional fried spicy garlic and green onion, enjoy immediately.
