Besides their affordable furniture and home furnishing, IKEA Singapore is also well known for their great range of meals and snacks. In fact, their Swedish Meatballs and Fried Chicken Wings are the most popular items to order. *Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post.
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.
