BonChon-Style Soy Garlic Wings Recipe

Soy garlic chicken wing is fried chicken wings coated with soy garlic sauce. The sauce is sweet, a little salty and spicy and it is similar to chili wings with an oriental twist. What makes it distinct is the use of rice flour instead of wheat flour which is usually used in cooking fried chicken.Rice flour has a very different texture when used as breading to fried chicken compared to using flour or cornstarch. When the chicken is fried with batter made from rice flour, it has a very thin crispy coating. It’s like you didn’t use any batter at all. You will only notice the difference when you start eating it. Anyway. if rice flour is not available, you can use cornstarch as a substitute.
