  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped green chile peppers

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 drop red food coloring

  • 10 chicken wings

  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 quarts canola oil for frying, or as needed


  1. Whisk salt, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, green chiles, chili powder, and red food coloring together in a large bowl until even in color.

  2. Push meat down to one end on each chicken wing; add wings to marinade and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Remove wings from marinade and shake off excess; mix cornstarch with marinade in the bowl to make a batter. Dip wings in the batter to coat.

  5. Lower wings carefully into the hot oil working in batches if needed; fry until cooked through and crispy, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
