- 2 lbs chicken wings
- cooking oil
- 1/3 cup fish sauce
- 10 pieces calamansi or 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 medium onion, quartered
- 5 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 3 pcs bay leaves
- 1 tsp peppercorns, cracked
- 2 tbsp rock salt
- To marinate: Rinse chicken under cold water and pat dry using a paper towel. In a wide bowl, combine chicken with fish sauce and calamansi juice. Massage chicken until chicken is evenly coated. Cover container and refrigerate for at least few hours but better overnight for better flavor.
- To poach: Using a medium pot, boil enough water to cover the chicken. Add onion, garlic, bay leaves, cracked peppercorns and rock salt. (add 1 tbsp of salt first then adjust to your liking) Allow to boil for about 10 minutes.
- Add marinated chicken (discard remaining marinade) to the pot and cook for about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from the pot and allow chicken to cool. Refrigerate chicken for at least 2 hours or better overnight for crispier chicken wings.
- Frying: Heat enough cooking oil over medium heat (enough to cover the chicken). Gently deep fry chicken by batch until golden brown and cooked through for about 10 minutes. Turn chicken as needed.
- Once golden brown and crispy, remove chicken from the oil and transfer in a plate lined with paper towels or on a wire rack to drain excess grease. Serve warm with your favorite side like salad or fries or java rice with your favorite dipping sauce like ketchup or sweet chili sauce or mixed. Enjoy!
