ISO Deep fried chicken wings

My daughter absolutely goes crazy over the deep fried chicken wings that we get at different chinese restaurants. I've tried soaking the wings in buttermilk, and many other things.
I'd appreciate any suggestions you have so that I can serve her up some that she will say, " Now that's a ten Mom". Too often it has been, " It's close Mom, but not quite right."
If I get it right, I'll teach her to make them 10's for me.

Miss Justabite Do you think what your daughter is tasting is a cooking method, a coating/breading, or spices on the wings?? Lets come up with an attack plan!

Have fun & Enjoy!

It's not spice.....salty to the taste and crispy. It's not batter or breading either. Hmmm? Attack plan, I like that one.

You can skip the buttermilk. While it's a good way to prep wings, it's not Asian at all.

The flavor you're looking for is in the marinade, which is basically a teriyaki marinade. Give them a soak in a treiyaki marinade then dry them and deep fry them.

So if you eliminate, spice, and breading/coating etc. Then method is left. So is the type of oil used which could impart a distinct flavor. I know a lot of those type places around here use commercial pre breaded products. Things taste the same everywhere you go. If you are experiencing the same wings in several places then you may be eating a frozen commercial product, which may make it difficult to duplicate.

Dredge the wings in flour, shake off excess and deep fry. Then, put the wings in a mixing bowl, drizzle in some teryaki sauce, and toss to evenly coat. Then bake at 400-450 for about 5 minutes.

Honestly, I think Uncle Bob is right on.

I also think Andy M is probably right on as well. The Chinese places are probably using a marinated, pre-breaded, frozen chicken wing product that isn't available in stores.

If you can, try looking for a brand called "Wing Dings". I've seen them at Wal-Mart here. I've used those in a restaurant. You might be able to come close by using that product, and tossing the cooked wings in a little teriyaki sauce.

Wing Dings are delicious on their own. If I could buy those, I wouldn't do a thing with them.

I believe Chinese restaurant wings are just marinated and deep fried.
