Units Scale
  • 23 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 23 tablespoons of hot sauce (whichever is your favorite)
  • 912 chicken wings
  • 2 tsp of sea salt
  • 2 tsp of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • your favorite wing sauce
Spicy Garlic Sauce
  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 4 oz (120 ml) water
  • 12 pats of butter (cold)


  1. Combine the salt and sugar together and mix well then sprinkle over whole chicken wings. Place over a grate or sieve with a container underneath to catch the liquid that drains off.  Chill in the refrigerator for 2-6 hours.
  2.   Rinse the salt and sugar off the chicken with water.  Drain excess moisture off the chicken and pat dry.
  3.   If the wings are whole, cut them into flats and drumettes.  Leave the tips on the flats if you’d like, otherwise cut them off and discard.
  4.   Toss the wing parts in melted butter and hot sauce.
  5.   Place wings tossed with butter and hot sauce into a baking tray and bake in the oven at 200C/400F for 20-30 min. You want them just slightly undercooked as you will be frying them again in oil.
  6.   In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, cornstarch, onion powder and garlic powder until thoroughly combined.
  7.   Toss the baked wings in the juices of the pan and dip in the seasoned flour and cornstarch mixture.  Toss until evenly coated.
  8. Fry in hot oil until crispy and slightly golden brown.
  9.  Remove from oil, drain on paper towels and toss in your favorite wing sauce.
Spicy Garlic Sauce
  1. Combine minced garlic, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, salt, sugar and water.
  2. Mix together and heat in a saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced by half.
  3. Once reduced by half, turn off the heat and stir in 1-2 pats of cold butter until thoroughly combined.  The sauce should thicken slightly.
  4. Drizzle over cooked chicken wings and toss until evenly coated.
