Ever since I posted my Better-than-IKEA Swedish Meatball last year, I’ve been wanting to recreate my own copycat version of IKEA Chicken Wings. After two rounds of kitchen testing, I think this is it. Actually, my test testers think these wings are better than IKEA’s.

I let the wings marinade overnight for maximum flavor and also adopt the double-fry technique to cook these wings. First, I deep fry them in medium hot oil (150°C/300°F) for about 6 – 7 mins until they are just golden brown and cooked through. Then, I drain them on paper towels and let them cool down for 15 – 20 mins. This step changes the structure of the proteins in the skin which is important for the second frying.

Before to serve, they are fried again in hot oil (180°C/350°F) for another 2 – 3 mins until they are achieved a deep golden crust. So yes, you could prepare these wings in advance and finish them just before serving.

Prepare your favorite ketchup or chilli sauce, plenty of napkins and enjoy.
