Recipe By Ashlee Redger, Savory Spice Test Kitchen

Be the party MVP with these awesome wings. They've got it all: sweetness, warm spices, a hint of citrus, and subtle heat. Twice frying provides a crispy skin that holds onto sauce better than baked or grilled wings.

Serving Suggestions

Instead of the standard carrots-and-celery accoutrements, serve with orange wedges and garnish with cilantro leaves.

Recipe Notes

*To split wings, cut at both joints in the wing. Discard wing tips or save them to simmer in homemade soups or chicken stock.

Ingredients

Directions

In a large pot, heat 2 to 3 inches of oil to 325 degrees. In batches, toss wing pieces in corn starch, shake off excess, and fry for about 6 min., or until wings just begin to brown. Set on a paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet topped with a cooling rack. Once all wings have been fried once, increase oil temperature to 375 degrees and fry wings again (in batches) until golden, about 4 to 5 more min. Meanwhile, pour sauce into a small pot over medium heat and cook until warm. Drain excess oil from wings, then toss in warm sauce to coat.
