Kung Pao Chicken Recipe

While this Kung Pao chicken recipe calls for baking the wings in a hot oven, you can fry the wings. Here’re some quick instructions for that process. 

First of all, rinse the chicken wings under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place the wings in a bowl, add black pepper and salt. For the first frying, heat vegetable oil in a frying pan to 170 ° C, you can check the temperature with a wooden spoon, if the oil is actively bubbling around the spoon, then the oil has warmed up. Place half of the prepared chicken wings in a skillet with butter, fry for 3 minutes until light brown, 1.5 minutes on each side, then transfer the wings from the skillet to a plate lined with paper towels.

As you know, oil cools during frying, so reheat the oil in the pan for 1-2 minutes to 170 ° C and put the remaining wings in the pan. Fry the second part of the wings in the same way as the first, then transfer from the pan to a plate with a paper napkin. For the second fry, heat the oil in the skillet to 200 ° C and fry the wings in two equal portions until golden brown, about 1.5 minutes on each side. Transfer from the skillet to a plate with a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.

Pour soy sauce into a clean skillet and add sugar, cook over medium heat, stirring until the sauce begins to thicken, about 2-3 minutes. Place the fried chicken wings in the sauce, stir so that the wings are completely covered with the sauce, sprinkle with sesame seeds.

The Kung Pao chicken is ready. Now served it as a main course or as a hot snack.
