"Old School" Fried Chicken Wings, a Chinese crispy chicken wing recipe that is so easy to make and yet so flavorful!
"Old School" Fried Chicken Wings is a simple Asian crispy chicken wing recipe that has been around for a long time. It is even a staple item on the bistro menu of IKEA Singapore! These scrumptious crispy wings are also commonly sold in Singapore school cafeterias. And the cafeterias are called canteens or tuckshops back in Singapore. Hence, I also refer to these wings as Canteen or Tuckshop Chicken Wings.
I made it for my Singapore National Day "makan" party last weekend and it was a huge hit! It is always great to get together with fellow Singaporeans, especially to celebrate Singapore's 52nd year of independence (SG52) and what makes us unique. We also had a wonderful multinational group of friends join us in our celebrations as well. And to give everyone a little taste of home, I made Nasi Lemak with dishes (recipes are on my blog) like Beef Rendang, Sayur Lodeh, Chicken Curry and these tasty "Old School" Fried Chicken Wings. We celebrated SG52 in true Singaporean style, with authentic Singaporean food!
