Deep-Fried Chicken Wings Recipe

A soy sauce mixture with sesame seeds and green onion adds flavor to these deep-fried wings. My mom got the recipe from a friend in Vancouver, British Columbia and passed it on to me. My husband just loves chicken wings, and these are by far his favorite. -Tami McLean, Brampton, Ontario

"Just made this for the family, and it was a hit all the way around. So amazing, kids just wanted more and more. My husband even suggested we cook all our chicken this way. Super simple with lots of flavor. I didn't have any sesame seeds, so i made with out and it was still so flavorful; i also only marinated for two hours since my family was hungry. The batter was very light and more asian style; not as thick as kfc or pop eyes american style batter. I will definitely be making more of this very soon "

"OMG! I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven! This was THE BEST fried wings I've ever tasted. I followed the recipe exactly as written. If you're looking for a KFC, grandma's fried chicken or a spicy type wing this is not the recipe for you. But if you want a juicy, tender and full of flavor wing this IS the recipe for you!!!!"
