Preparation

  1. Add the smashed garlic cloves, soy sauce, oil, rice vinegar, scallions, and ginger to a large bowl. Whisk together until evenly combined. Add the chicken wings and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or overnight.
  2. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade and dry completely with paper towels.
  3. Heat 2 inches oil in a large pot over medium-high heat to 350°F (180°C).
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
  5. Coat each chicken wing generously with the flour mixture.
  6. In small batches, fry the chicken wings in the hot oil for 6-7 minutes, until the skin is golden brown and crispy and the internal temperature of the meat near the bone reaches 165°F (74°C).
  7. Use a slotted spoon to remove the chicken wings to a paper towel-lined sheet tray to drain.
  8. Make the honey garlic sauce: Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes, until softened and fragrant.
  9. Add the honey, water, soy sauce, and sriracha.
  10. In a small bowl, stir together the water and cornstarch to make a slurry. Pour the slurry into the honey mixture and stir well. Bring to a boil and cook for 2-3 minutes, until thickened.
  11. Add the fried chicken wings directly into the sauce and stir until the wings are well coated. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and garnish with scallions.
