Servings: Serves 2 people
1 1/2 lb chicken wings
2 tsp minced fresh ginger root
2 TBS water
2 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 TBS soy sauce
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Remove the wing tips from the chicken wings and discard them (or save them for the stockpot).
Cut the wings into two pieces and place them in a bowl.
In a small bowl, combine the ginger and water.
Stir in the sugar, salt, and soy sauce.
Pour this mixture over the wings and marinate for 30 minutes, then drain the wings.
In a deep saucepan half filled with oil, or in a deep fryer filled as per the manual's instructions, heat the oil to 375 degrees F.
Fry the wings a few at a time, until brown and cooked through (about 10 to 15 minutes).
Remove them with a slotted spoon and allow to drain.
Repeat with the remaining wings.
