chicken wing in brine solution for around 2 hours before frying them. Soaking chicken in brine solution would make the meat moist and salty. However, if you are worried about the chicken being too salty, then you can just rub them with salt. Actually brine solution is more suitable for whole chicken or whole turkey. If you are using whole chicken or turkey, then you can soak them overnight.
You can deep fry, roast or barbecue the marinated chicken. Since, it would be a hassle to start up my barbecue pit, I just fried the chicken wings in vegetable oil.
Here is my Ham Ham Kai (Salty Fried Chicken) Recipe.....not 'ham sup kai' lah......he he he!
Chicken Wings, 10 pcs
Brine Solution, enough to cover the chicken
Dark Soya Sauce, 1/2 teaspoon
Honey, enough to glaze the chicken
Lemon Juice, from 1 lemon
Five spice powder, 1 teaspoon
Note : To make brine solution, add half cup of table salt to 1 gallon (around 3.7 liters) of water.
Soak chicken wings in brine solution for around 2 hours. Pour away the brine solution. Marinade the chicken with dark soya sauce, five spice powder and lemon juice. Deep fry the chicken wings until they turned golden brown. Remove chicken from the wok and drain away excess oil. Rub honey on the chicken while it is still hot before serving.
