This recipe was inspired by a Chinese cooking show that I watched, called 美女私房菜. Her recipe called for cooking the chicken in a spice soy sauce broth and then deep-fry the chicken until crispy before adding the scallion ginger fragrant sauce on top. I bookmarked it because it seem so interesting. My chance came when I had some leftover oven roasted chicken wings and drumettes. While I was thinking of what to make of this leftover wings, her recipe came to mind. So, I pan-fried my wings and drumettes and then cooked this scallion ginger fragrant and put it on top of the chicken to serve. I truly loved this scallion ginger fragrant sauce and it can easily be used to top with fried fish, deep-fried pork ribs, shrimps, or anything you can think of. My attempt at recreating a leftover to another new dish.
Leftover bbq/oven roasted chicken wings (about 8-10 wings and drumettes)
- 3 Tbsp. chopped scallion
- 3 Tbsp. minced ginger
- 1 tsp. chicken powder
- 1/4 tsp. white pepper
1. In a hot wok, add in some cooking oil. When heated, gently drop in the wings and drumettes in batches. Pan-fry until heated through and crispy. Dish out and place on a serving plate.
2. In the same wok, scoop out some of the oil, just left about 1 Tbsp. of oil in the wok. Add in ginger and scallion and stir-fry until fragrant. Season with chicken powder and white pepper. Pour this fragrant on top of the wings and drumettes to serve.
