5/5 (2)


  • For the Chicken Marinade
  • tick8 free-range chicken wings - cut in halves (we love Waitoa)
  • tick200ml buttermilk
  • tick1 tbsp sea salt
  • tickWhite pepper
  • For the coating
  • tick4 tbsp Chantal Organics White Flour
  • tick2 tbsp potato flour
  • tick2 tbsp Chantal Organics White Rice Flour
  • tickOil for frying
  • For the Korean Barbecue Sauce
  • tick2 tbsp Chantal Organics Tomato Sauce
  • tick2 tbsp sriracha
  • tick2 heaped tbsp gochujang
  • tick4 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • tick4 tbsp golden sugar
  • tick2.5cm piece fresh ginger, minced
  • tick1 tsp Chantal Organics Toasted Sesame Oil
  • For garnish
  • tick2 spring onions, green part only thinly sliced
  • tickBlack sesame seeds


  • Step 1.

    Place buttermilk in a large bowl. Season the buttermilk with salt and plenty of white pepper. Add chicken wings and combine well. Cover and leave to marinade in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

  • Step 2.

    In another bowl, mix white flour, potato flour and rice flour. Take the excess marinade off the chicken pieces with your hands and coat them with the flour mixture.

  • Step 3.

    Heat oil in a deep fryer or a large saucepan to 140C. Fry the chicken wings for 10-12 minutes until cooked through. Take them out on kitchen towel. Set aside. The chicken should be cooked but still white outside.

  • Step 4.

    Heat the oil in a wok. Once the oil is hot (170C for veges, 180C for prawns), dust veggies and prawns in flour then quickly dip in the batter. Carefully slide in the hot oil to cook until the ingredients are cooked through and the batter becomes crispy and slightly golden.

  • Step 5.

    While the chicken is cooking for the first time, make the Korean Barbeque Sauce. In a saucepan mix tomato sauce, sriracha, gochujang, rice wine vinegar, ginger and sugar. Heat to boil, then simmer for a few minutes to thicken. Remove from the heat. Add sesame oil.

  • Step 6.

    Increase the oil temperature in the deep-fryer to hot - at least 190C. Fry the chicken again for 3-5 minutes until golden and crispy. Drain the chicken on a piece of kitchen towel.

  • Step 7.

    In a bowl, pour 1/3 of the sauce over the chicken. Toss to coat.

  • Step 8.

    Place the chicken in a serving dish. Pour remaining sauce, garnish with spring onion and sesame seeds. Serve with plenty of serviettes. Enjoy!
