For the Wings:

  • 3 pounds chicken wings, washed, trimmed and cut in pieces
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Johnny’s Seasoned Pepper
  • 3 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk

For the Glaze:

  • 1 finely minced garlic clove
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Johnny’s Seasoned Pepper
  • 2 tsp Chinese crushed chili paste
  • 1/4 tsp Johnny’s Seasoning Salt


Preparing the Wings:

  1. Wash, trim excess skin and fat and cut the wings into pieces, discarding the tips. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Mix together the flour, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, five-spice powder, sea salt, Johnny’s Seasoned Pepper and ground ginger.
  3. Prepare an egg wash by whisking together the eggs and milk.
  4. Coat the egg-washed wings in the flour mixture and drop them in a canola oil-filled and preheated 350 degrees F deep fryer for about 8-10 minutes or little longer for larger wings, until a medium golden brown.
  5. Drain on a wire rack placed on a cookie sheet.
  6. Hold in a 175-degree oven if making more than one batch.

Preparing the Glaze:

  1. Add the oil and garlic to a small saucepan.
  2. Saute over medium heat until the garlic is softened but not browned.
  3. Add the honey, Johnny’s Seasoned Pepper, Chinese crushed chili paste, and Johnny’s Seasoning Salt and simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Pour over all the cooked wings in a large bowl and toss well to cover the wings in the glaze before serving.
  5. You can also just serve the glaze as a dipping sauce if you prefer.
