Chicken wings for eating while watching television

This is something you should only do when mom is visiting a friend in Seattle. Men will like it, but mothers will go all basiliskic over the idea.

Men can usually be relied on to keep secrets if it is in their best interests to do so.

Teevee chicken

Two pounds chicken wings
Three tablespoons oyster sauce at least
Two tablespoons soy sauce
Two tablespoons ricewine
One garlic clove, smashed and chopped fine
A little ginger, chopped fine
A little bit of cayenne

Mix oyster sauce, soy sauce, rice wine, garlic, ginger, and cayenne.
Marinate chicken wings for half an hour.

Dip in beaten egg, and roll in equal proportions flour and cornstarch mixed together with a little ground pepper. Deep fry crispy. Serve with a sweet hot sauce.

You could double the recipe. Or even sextuple it if there are two middle-aged men in front of the television.


Note UNO: You can make a sweet hot sauce for dipping by mixing two parts honey with one part Sri Racha hot sauce. It is very good.

Note DUO: It is also very delicious with ranch dressing. Fried chicken with ranch dressing is NOT just for one week per month, but all weeks per month, unless you are Savage Kitten, as described here:

Sorry, BOTH, some of us just love Kraft Ranch Dressing. Which is also very good with plain shrimp. Better than cocktail sauce. Ask Savage Kitten, she'll probably agree.

When you wave your wings, don;t splatter me with ranch dressing. Words to live by, little dumpling, words to live by.
