Full Answer

In a bowl, mix together 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of cornstarch, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of sesame seeds and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Stir in 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of canola oil and 5 teaspoons of soy sauce until a batter forms. Add 2 finely chopped green onions. Immerse the chicken wings in the batter, and refrigerate covered for three hours. Remove the wings from the batter, and fry. If using a skillet, fry the wings for five to six minutes on each side.

Another good recipe uses a spicy chicken seasoning and batter. Mix together 1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper flakes, 1 tablespoon of seasoning salt, 2 teaspoons of black pepper, 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon of lemon-pepper. Add 2 teaspoons of poultry seasoning to the mixture, and sprinkle all of it over the wings except for 2 tablespoons. Place the seasoned wings in the refrigerator for one hour.

Meanwhile, make the spicy batter by mixing together 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of hot sauce, 1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon of black pepper and 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Dip the wings in the batter, dredge through all-purpose flour, and sprinkle with the reserve 2 tablespoons of spicy seasoning. Cook in a deep-fryer or in a Dutch oven with vegetable oil heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
