  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 inch ginger sliced
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 chilies dried
  • 1000 g chicken wings
  • 60 ml water
  • 60 ml wine⁣⁣⁣
  • 3 tbsp soya sauce dark one (add more if like taste)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soya sauce light
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 scallions cut into 2-inch lengths


  • Start by putting the sesame oil, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic, and red chili into your wok over medium heat
  • Let the aromatics infuse the oil for a couple minutes
  • Then turn up the heat to high, and add the chicken wings to the wok all in one layer
  • Sear the chicken until golden brown on both sides
  • Then add 1/4 cup warm water, ¼ cup Shaoxing wine, dark soy sauce (2-5 teaspoons, depending on how dark you’d like the dish to be), 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce, and 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Stir and cover the wok
  • Turn the heat down to medium and simmer for 15 minutes to cook the chicken through (cook for 20 minutes if you want the chicken to be more tender)
  • Then remove the cover and turn up the heat to rapidly reduce the sauce for a few minutes until it clings to the chicken and gives it a rich, dark color
  • Make sure to stir the chicken during this process to prevent burning
  • Throw in your Thai basil and/or scallions and fry another minute until it’s wilted
  • Serve!
