Honey Lemon Chicken Wings

Impossibly crispy chicken wings and the most delicious sweet and sticky glaze… there’s no soggy skin in sight with these fried little friends of mine! All I can say is: wow. If you’re super-organised, marinate them in the fridge overnight for even more flavour.

Honey Lemon Chicken Wings

PREP TIME

COOK TIME

SERVES

Ingredients

1kg (2.2 lb) chicken wings

½ cup corn flour (cornstarch)

vegetable oil for deep frying

sesame seeds to serve

 

Marinade:

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 chicken stock cube, crumbled

1 tsp sugar

 

Honey lemon sauce:

1/3 cup honey

zest of 1 lemon

juice of 1 lemon (3 tbsp)

2 tsp corn flour (cornstarch) mixed with 2 tbsp water

Steps
  • Step 1

    Combine the chicken wings with the marinade ingredients. Mix well with your hands and ‘massage’ the marinade into the wings. Set aside while you make your sauce.

  • Step 2

    To make the honey lemon sauce, combine the honey, lemon zest and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for a minute. Then pour in the corn flour mixture and stir vigorously for about half a minute or until very thick (the sauce will look like a thick gel at this stage). Remove from heat and set aside while you cook your wings.

  • Step 3

    Fill a saucepan or wok to about 1/3 capacity with the vegetable oil. Heat over high heat. The oil is hot enough at 165°C/325°F or when a wooden spoon dipped into the oil forms small little bubbles.

  • Step 4

    Place the corn flour in a large shallow dish. Add half the chicken wings and toss to coat. Pat excess flour from each wing before gently placing in the hot oil. Cook the wings for 8-10 minutes or until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towel and repeat with remaining wings and flour.

  • Step 5

    While the wings are still warm, place them in a large bowl. Add the honey lemon sauce and toss until well combined. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and toss again. Serve with napkins for messy fingers!
