Shop This Recipe

It's the beginning of Lunar New Year! A time to celebrate with family and friends and it always includes tonnes and tonnes of delicious food! Liv from Head Office has shared one of her favourite dishes to cook over this time of year - Ginger and Sesame Fried Chicken. 

Serves 4 as an entree.

Ingredients

  • 500g Organic Chicken Wingettes
  • 2 tbsp Chinese Cooking Wine
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1inch Ginger, minced with microplane
  • 1 White Pepper
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Corn Flour or Potato Starch
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1 big pinch of Salt
  • Vegetable Oil

Method

  1. Mix the Chinese cooking wine, soy, ginger, white pepper and sugar in a container.
  2. Add chicken and let it marinade for 2 hours minimum or overnight if time permits.
  3. Add corn flour, sesame seeds and salt, place lid on container and shake.
  4. You can always add more flour if you need to get it to a thick, batter consistency.
  5. Heat a large saucepan with oil over medium-high heat. You want to have enough oil for most of the chicken to be submerged.
  6. Carefully lower chicken into oil and cook until golden, usually around 2-3 minutes per side.
  7. Drain in paper towel and serve with fresh chilli and chopped spring onion.
