General Tso Chicken Wings. THE wings for Superbowl Sunday! inspired by the popular Chinese take-out dish, the same sweet and spicy sauce is an ideal addition to crispy, tender chicken wings.

3 pounds chicken wings
1 tbsp egg + 2 water whisked together to make an egg wash
1 cup flour
½ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
3 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
For the Sauce
1 cup sugar
¼ cup water
4 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp rice wine vinegar white wine vinegar is fine in a pinch
2 tbsp toasted sesame seed oil
2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp hot crushed chilli paste or sauce use more or less to taste if you don’t like it very hot
3 cloves minced garlic
3 tbsp freshly grated ginger
¼ cup water
2 tsp corn starch

Combine the 1 cup flour, ½ tsp black pepper, ¼ tsp cayenne pepper, 3 tbsp ground ginger, 1 tsp salt.
Prepare an egg wash by whisking together the eggs and water.

Season the chicken wings with salt and pepper, dip them in the egg wash and then dredge them in the flour mixture. Press the wings into the flour and spice mixture well to get good contact with the skin. This helps get very crispy wings.
Drop the wings into a preheated 350 degree F deep fryer that's filled with canola oil for about 8-10 minutes or little longer for larger wings, until a medium golden brown.
Drain on a wire rack placed on a cookie sheet. Hold in a 175 degree oven if making more than one batch.
