A simple recipe for Chinese Style Salt Pepper Chicken Wings. I threw in a little optional twist by smoking the wings a bit on my Big Green Egg prior to frying them.


For dredging
Potato starch 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs) ((or corn starch))
White pepper 2 Teaspoon
Sea salt 2 Teaspoon
Fish sauce 1 Tablespoon
Water 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) ((use as needed))
Other ingredient
Chopped scallions 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) ((fresh))
Chopped green onion 15 Gram ((small handful))
Thai chili 4 , mince ((or Serrano chili))
Minced garlic 2 Tablespoon
White pepper 1 Tablespoon
Sea salt 1 Tablespoon
Chinese chili paste 1 Teaspoon
Chicken drummettes 1 Pound
Canola oil 1 Cup (16 tbs) ((For deep frying))



1. Preheat Weber to 250 degree F.


2. Place chicken on grill and smoke for 25 minutes or until nice and light golden brown.

3. In a bowl, combine potato starch, white pepper, sea salt, and fish sauce. Mix well.

4. Pour water, a little at a time and mix to get desired consistency. Set aside.

5. In a pan, heat canola oil until it reaches 350 degree F.

6. Dip chicken in the bowl with potato starch slurry and roll to coat well.

7. Carefully add the chicken into the hot oil and fry for 5 minutes.

8. In a wok, pour ¼ cup of oil and add Thai chili, Chinese chili paste, garlic, and scallion. Stir until nice and toasty and then add the fried chicken.

9. Season with salt and pepper.


10. Garnish with green onion and serve hot.
