Spicy Orange Chicken Wings


Ingredients

2 pounds of chicken wings cut at joints and discard tips OR YOU CAN USE CHICKEN TENDERLOINS

2 eggs beaten

¼ cup of milk

Sprinkle of fresh ground black pepper

2 cups of Japanese Panko Bread Crumbs (optional, but makes a crunchier wing…I prefer it)

Bottle of Spicy Gourmet Orange Sauce

2 Scallions, rough chop (green and light green parts only)

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

1 Orange sliced thinly for serving

1 quart of vegetable or peanut oil  

*I must note that I have tested this recipe without the use of Japanese panko bread crumbs, eggs or milk and it too came out delicious. Should you chose to omit those three ingredients, simply season the chicken lightly with salt and fresh ground black pepper and fry the wings and continue with the recipe. Its also important to note that if your decide to use chicken tenders or breasts, I recommend using the Japanese panko bread crumbs, eggs and milk* 

Heat oil to 365 degrees – DO NOT SEASON YOUR CHICKEN, THE SEASONING IS IN THE SAUCE

In a medium bowl, combine, eggs, milk and fresh ground black pepper, whisk together

In a separate bowl, pour 2 cups of Japanese panko bread crumbs (found at any grocery store in the flour aisle)

Now dip chicken into egg mixture and SHAKE OFF EXCESS

Next toss the chicken in the Japanese panko breadcrumbs to coat completely and SHAKE OFF EXCESS

Continue until all of the chicken has been dipped in the egg mixture and coated in the bread crumbs

Now fry chicken for about 12 to 15 minutes for wings and 8 to 9 minutes for tenders or sliced breasts (to cook evenly, do not overcrowd skillet)

While the chicken is frying start warming the orange glaze on low

Remove from oil, drain and immediately dunk the chicken into the warmed orange sauce wait 5 minutes and dip the chicken in the orange sauce once more. Make sure the chicken is completely covered with the orange sauce.

Arrange the wings on a platter and place the oranges on the plate surrounding the chicken and sprinkle with white sesame seeds

Finally sprinkle the chicken with scallions and serve with an extra side of orange sauce (optional)
